Opposites

Opposites

A Poem by Alexa Apothic Red

You're a boring sports report
When I needed poetry
You're annoying noises and off-pitch hums
When I needed a lovely song
You're a droning on and on about things that don't matter
When I needed, "How are you today?"
You're insensitive nagging snarkisms
When I needed compassion and empathy
You're a hot mean temper
When I needed calm collaboration
You're a door left open
When I needed a quiet place
You're an abrupt, rude awakening
When I needed a heavenly dream
You're a chipper chatty bouncy morning
When I needed time to adjust quiet and coffee
You're a blasé tired Monday
When I needed an amped up Saturday night
You're a smile at the children
When I needed eyes that peel through my clothes
You're a delayed and cancelled date
When I needed to be the number one.. even once?
You're an expectation dripping with selfishness
When I needed to be served
You're a meaningless logistical plan
When I needed flirtation whispered in my ear
You're a begrudging errand
When I needed a sexy fantasy to unfold
You're a placating pat on the back
When I needed an oiled-up full body massage
You're a weak held hand
When I needed fingertips searching
You're a platonic peck on the cheek
When I needed that tongue deep French
You're an obligatory unrelated sigh
When I needed an orgasmic operetta within me
You're domestic missionary one time just for you
When I needed all kinds surprising maneuvers all night.. oh and maybe me too?
You're a lukewarm friend who seems to coexist
When I needed a passionate lover who actually loves me
You're separate sleeping leaving me alone most nights
When I needed to be spooned, embraced, just held and wanted intimately

That's a lot of oximorons in that poem, but it puts a nice effect on the poem. I hope I am not rude when I ask this, but what is this about?

Opposites is one of many titles you could've used here. As I read your poem, I kept thinking "out of sync" and "no harmony." The question I ask is, "what happened?" Was "it" ever there and disappeared, or did one of the two change, perhaps for the better? It seems time, like the wind, transforms us, often into different shapes that no longer fit together. You described that well here, as you do with your other works. The reader can also sense the frustration and bitterness as the poem nears the end.

Some of your sentences are very relatable to me. I enjoyed reading this poem. I loved the contrast of what you want and what you are actually getting.

I see this all to often in relationships and yet I try to be the opposite, because I know how I feel if they don't listen. Same old story makes one want to escape life and run away. Thank you for sharing..

Is it just me. Or does this opposite relationship not work.
You and Galadriel need to kick a*s.
Now I'm going to watch the football tonight. Then we'll discuss the match afterwards. Then we'll discuss it a bit more. Then we'll b***h about women. But in a good way.

This reminds me of a poem I wrote called Based on Sex. Nice write!

I can totally relate to being wanted needed and having so much affection to drown the oceans but it was never returned or appreciated, only so many times we can try then we need to face the fact maybe it’s hust not meant to be- I believe in deep sensual attraction and having someone that never wants to stop touching you and showing you attention and affection.. forever is still not enough..not a nice feeling to feel the feelings expressed in the poem but sometimes we need to experience these things to realise what it is that we truly desire🌹

Is this from personal experience? I’ve definitely been in this situation before! It’s a really frustrating feeling to be out of tune with the person you’re with. Sounds like it’s time for a heart to heart!
