Antithetical Statement

I was lost and then I was found, I was up, but now I am down.  It rained all night the day I left, The weather it was dry, The sun so hot I froze to death, Susanna, don’t you cry.  One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small.  You’re sick of hangin’ around and you’d like to travel, Get tired of travelin’, you want to settle down.  In the white room with black curtains.  You know the day destroys the night, Night divides the day.   Rain, I don’t mind.  Shine, the weather’s fine.  Imagine there’s no heaven, It’s easy if you try, No hell below us, Above us, only sky.  Your candle burned out long before, Your legend ever did.  Talk in song in tongues of lilting grace, Sounds caress my ear. There are not a word I heard could I relate, Story was quite clear.  So the winner takes it all, And the loser has to fall.

No sweeping exit, Or offstage lines.  He made his usual entrance lookin’ so dandy and so fine.  Morning came and morning went, Pack up your money, Pick up your tent, You ain’t goin nowhere.  There ain’t no good guy, there ain’t no bad guy, There’s only you and me and we just disagree.  When you love someone, You’ll deny the truth, believe a lie.  She was married when we first met, Soon to be divorced. I thought you’d never say hello, she said, You look like the silent type.  We always did feel the same, We just saw it from a different point of view.

Written for Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Saturday Mix Opposing Forces hosted by weejars aka Sarah where she asked us to use the words divorced and married – exit and entrance.

    This is certainly a good start to finding common factors to make it last. The more shared interests are seen the better for the relationship
