A Pair of Witches

They are love
and loneliness:
perfect,
destructive,

A pair caught like magnets
and the pull of fate.
They attract,
they repel,
they dance around each other:
rivals in an eternal courtship dance.

Even in the depths of despair
they dance together:
black and red and blue

Lonely loving,
loving loneliness,
so close and yet so far
from each other…

It's the tragic tale of Romeo and Juliet
where they're both drowned
in the fogs of hell,
fighting all that moves,
looking for each other.
