Pushmi-pullyu


You
push me
away,
then entice me to
pull you
back.
Again and again and again.
This is the game
we play.
And now
I am ready
for something new.
Yet I fear,
when I finally
 push you
away,
you may not care to
pull me
back
to you.



For G-man and his FF-55.  And in keeping with the theme, just for fun here is a Brilliant youtube Doctor/River song.  Enjoy!

  2. This is so cute. It could be a dance. Or just the day-to-day dance of love.
    I just sent you an e-mail with a photo my husband took earlier this week. Just then, he phoned, so I told him what I'd sent you and he laughed. I hope you like it. I also hope it doesn't go into your junk mail, there to be lost forevermore.

  4. We enjoyed the contrast between the two stanzas, where carefree and playful words are followed by a touch of anxiety!

  6. How cute. Sometimes we push when we mean to pull. Or push and wait, and wait, and wait...

    Happy Friday, Mary!

  8. This reminds me of Dr. Doolittle. But the subject matter is serious, really, because there is a push/pull that goes on in all relationships. And part of the allure of pushing is knowing you'll be pulled right back. If not...then it becomes something completely different and sad. A thought-provoking 55, Mary. Can you tell I loved it? :)
