middle ground

up and down don’t always agree
but they still love each other deeply
and they find ways to see things I to I

neither one could survive
if the other vanished or died
for there is no up if there is no down

so they hide and they seek
they dance cheek to cheek
and agree to disagree, to add spice

opposite but never opposed
they kiss each other from head to toe
and find their way to middle ground

About the Author: I have a B.A. in Honours Religious Studies from the University of Waterloo and I love all major world religions – Eastern, Western, or in between. I’m genderqueer, and I’m comfortable with male, neutral, and female pronouns. I’m married to my dear wife Lynn, who is the love of my life, my best friend, and my muse. I think far too much, and often have too many ideas to know what to do with. And I am a doing being, just like you!
