Plus & Minus

There is plus and and there is Minus
Like a blanket and that boy Linus
Cozy Carl and Anxious Amy
Put em’ together?
Not if you paid me
Simple Simon and Complex Carrie
You stay here
I’ll take the ferry
Conservative Cathy and Sammy Spender
This is a definite fender bender
Pessimistic Penny and Carefree Chris
How long do you think
They’ll put up with this?
Messy Mike and Tidy Terri
who would’ve thunk
these two would marry?
For every rose there comes a thorn
For every plus and minus born
Like with the rain there is the cloud
Beside the humble there is the proud
Like Happy Hank and Sad Sally
With every peak there comes a valley
For every right there is a wrong
For every tear there is a song
And a wrong for every right
Like a day for every night
There is simply balance in everything
and in everything there is balance
There is a plus for every minus
and a minus for every plus
Thus they cancel each other out
And then,
there is nothing

Change of Hearts

He said I do
she said likewise
two hearts have been joined
and become one
in holy matrimony
with strong
vibrant bridal love
where there is
fullness of joy
peace and security
all the days
enduring years on end
until the love had faded
like a flower
that did once bud, bloom
wilted away
and lost its beauty
only to be detested
and thrown away
as worthless, rubbish
to be counted as dung

you have wasted my heart
you have played my heart strings
and left me in silence

and yet our song is not heard
but only the discord
of a broken heart
that once was

the heart that we had together
torn like a garment
and ripped asunder
into two again
a fragment of the beauty
once beheld

the one have become two again
broken fragments of the whole
exhibiting hearts that will
need a careful mend

The Human Heart

What rides like a roller coaster
turns on a dime
ascends like rocket
crashes like an avalanche
sticks like fly paper
and varies with the weather?

Only the human heart.
