Electric love

Post by Lynchpig » Wed Jun 29, 2011 6:07 am

They moved together, then apart. Together. Apart. The rhythm of attraction. Of desire. Of need. Driven by forces beyond their control they danced, alternately pulling each other closer and then pushing each other away. The electric promise of fulfilment as they came closer together but always followed by the heartbreaking sorrow of separation. Eternally tormented by fate’s cruel turns. “One day my love” he cried as he spun away through the darkness “we shall find rest in this dark hell”. Then someone turned the power off and the alternating current motor went dead. The magnets lay unmoving. The spark gone.

I could not agree more.
Ever get the feeling that everything is connected, strawman?

Some things are only connected by their absence.
A partial list, in descending order:
Good * Evil
Light * Darkness
Matter * Antimatter
Truth * Truthers
Birth * Birthers
That which is so * That which is not so
Casey Anthony * Anthony Weiner

I think Truth * Truthers, and Birth * Birthers belong on the same tier, Strawman... :-)
You were feeling very Hegelian today, I see.
