My Two Loves

I love two men, but so different they are
One is my hero, one my falling star
The first is so gentle and loving and bright
The second, he never says anything right.

One man in my life is witty and charming
His eyes are seductive, his smile disarming
His words are as sweet as strawberry wine
He makes me so happy to call him mine.

The other, he laughs and teases me so
He says words in jest and lets them go
He staggers around with a glazed look
He counts on me to get him off the hook.

With man number one the kisses are tender
Man number two, who wants to remember
The first, he speaks straight to my soul
The second, I follow where he must go.

The first man always mends my heart
After the second has torn it apart
He dries my tears and softens my cries
After I’ve handled the second ones lies.

So you must be asking why do I hold on
To man number two when the first is so strong
The answer sometimes fills me with shame
I love them both… for they are one and the same.

What a cool poem...

The duality of man...I love it. and understand it intrinsically...

no one is perfect...nice to see that in a poem...as everyone else seems to be searching for the "perfect love" these days

More than shivering, I like your style.

Oh, How true! Huh, I don't think you can explain it any better than that. Well done!

Once again..Thank You all...although my husband says I am more of the split personality than he, I had to write this for him! He helped me see that all of us carry two parts (or three or four), but the love is never less. (Or I should hope not!)
