The balance of our relationship – Kevan Taplin

I fell even lower

The balance of our relationship

In the beginning we hung like a Calder mobile

In perfect balance,moving slowly

Then shapes began to drop from your side

NO.

First the red triangle of passion fell, I plunged.

NO.

Now lower, trying not to see the imbalance

One more shape dropped from your side,

I fell even lower.

NO.

Finally the circle of trust fell.

The concept of balance was lost forever.

NO.

I plunge towards the toxic mercury fountain of bitterness

beneath me.


The balance gone forever…
