sun-spangled Sunday

our fiery chemistry
we can’t quite comprehend
feels like living in times before Lavoisier
we’re grateful for the warmth
but clueless of combustion
like fairies in the flame of a blazing romance

we agreed to work on communication
you say I lose my charm
when I give you cryptic messages
tempting you into the deep
then freeing you to speak
making you feel so secure
without promise that I’d ever take the vow
or reveal my vulnerability
as if in a David Chaum mixed network

I say you give me mixed signals
always having me questioning
things I’ll never have answers to
all the same, I so thoroughly enjoy your company
still, the idea of love is unsettling
but I know just how lucky I am because you’re so caring

and maybe that explains it
why we are good for each other
right now, this moment
when our affinity is so tenderly balanced
on this sun-spangled Sunday

    These lines…one of those times someone else explains an experience I’ve had with better words than I’ve ever found to explain it.

    Hi Tanya, what else can I say other than thank you and it’s rewarding knowing a common humanity captured can be expressed in a relatable way thus giving it validity… which would otherwise be impossible to prove and yes, the human condition is common in all beings but often we cannot establish that for lack of symbols on which to draw an agreeable conclusion. I’m glad the words achieved that purpose in this instance… I wholly feel you 🙂
