We are like

Magnets sometimes fighting

To get away

While at others

So strongly attracted

That we simply

Slap against each

Other we are

Like old stale

Jokes that bring

Erupting laughter despite

Their habitual reappearance

Sometimes we’re calm

Like a Honolulu

Beach at sunrise

But mostly we’re

Like a letter

Finding its comfort

Inside its envelope

We’re not meant

To be together

Yet here we

Are always together
