A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

a little funny, sort of ...

"
she sits between
a rock
and a place too hard
to ascertain.

a lover close,
but distant,
soft,
but hard.

another distant,
but close,
near,
but far.

short of a breakthrough
in gene splicing,
for the time being,
it remains
"complicated".

This should be found when looked upon the term relationships in the dictionary. Soft but Hard , Near but Far and so simple yet complicated. For all those who can't cope with unresolved situations be warned and keep yourdistance as this may have unexpected side effects.

On a wing and a prayer

Thankyou

yes most definitely. even funnier that both men thought it funny.
Amazing poetry and a outstanding song.
"a lover close,
but distant,
soft,
but hard."
The above lines. Written softly and carry a heavy thought to be shared. Thank you dear Poet for sharing the amazing poetry.

You are too kind and you are welcome.
So many can relate to this near but far feeling of "it's complicated." Isn't it always the way?

You're very welcome. Hope all is well in Goodeland :)
Must be the greatest saying ever. A rock and a hard place.
You just don't need to write anything after that.

There's always the one you wonder.:) Best left to wondering, I think.

I guess it's best left to wondering. But is a bit of sampling out of the question? :)
Ah, yes......complicated. Which one is truly the one for you? Stuck between in a dichotomy of soft and hard, sweet and sour. Wonderful write, KL. Lydi**

Thank you very much for reading this older piece.
OMG(gosh), "it's complicated", the universe is still expanding, the earth spins on it's axis, it is raining in Manhattan, and KL has a dilemma; two loves. And of this the most difficult to solve or understand is what's a meowing KL to do??? What I think is that you Ms complicated, will figure it out and write us a wonderfully loverly romantic poem that tickles us with spice... amen and thank you very much. ;0)

Does that mean no decision has been made??? Why not clone both and keep both of them??? Problem so.. read more
