A Thin Line


 Too much passion

Not opposites-

a thread that separates

Could take you up so high

Yet with the slip of one word

Could bring you down so low

The slip of one word could make you fall

Or to your death as well.

We are not opposites

We cannot exist without the other.

Our only antonym 

Is Apathy.

This reminds me

of one that I wrote in 2010, but have not yet had the time to post. I like this very much, and enjoy the structure of nearly everythng of yours I have read. Lines ten, eleven, and twelve at are excellent. Well done.
