A Poem by flickering candle

I fell in love with half of you


and when anyone mentioned your name,  i smiled sadly. 

beucase i knew i could only love a part of you


i could only be with a part of you


i loved half         of you

is that    wrong?

it tore me up inside enough to rip my heart    in half

torn betweeen


the kind of person i am and my own afffection that was only yours


i was oil and you were vinegar. 


you- exciting and dark

showing me your sour, strong world


and i-

smooth and flexible,   useful for many things and put wherever needed



we collided so abruptly that my oily fingers could

barely touch your hands made of


and the bubbles floating between us were as                                       close                                          


as we got

like every mix of the two,     we didnt


but i wanted to so badly

oil                         and vinegar

just close enough to touch but                             far                        enough away to feel like the distance

would make my




so i blew oil bubble kisses

and wished

i was
