I never chose to fall in love

I just did.

Now the separation tugs at me

And the ache never lessens.

You, the conservative;

Me, the alternative.

But we blend like a Turner

And we bleed like road kill.

One without the other.

I've read a lot of poetry in my day.  But never came across one with road kill in the verse.  It works well here.

You have the magical insight of a seer as always. 

Gosh I have missed you! Reading your work inspires and moves me as a woman. 
You amaze me continually. More, more, more dear Ali. Please.

Oh, my, yes. Indeed, we bleed. You never fail to reach the heart of the matter with no wasted words. I miss you, Ali. Glad to see a new posting. ML
