For her

How can one know something
that is going to be in the future?

It happened to me once before,
so I am not that keen on it.

I knew, before the relationship
with N. started, that it would be.

It happened, and two years later
we were about to kill each other

and getting ready for divorce.
And now, with you, even though

nothing worth mentioning
has ever happened, I have

the same feeling of certainty
(sometimes). And no, I am not

pushing it. I can and will not
push you, and I will not be pushed

myself. Everything to be
is to be loving and free.

Written for napowrimo #28, intuition.

Wasn't happy with the ending, amended it, like it better now.

Been there, done that...

Good poem. I hope your intuition is wrong.

Says a lot here, and I like the straight-forward presentation. I, too, hope your intuition is wrong...unless you're hoping otherwise.

Self-fulfilling prophecies tend to be that way...

Here's to hoping and knowing and going for it, anyway....
