positive and negative

positive and negative

 

i have the ability to push and pull

 

i’ve gotten pretty good at it over the years

but not necessarily in a way that i would want

 

it started when i was a child

 

i ate magnets

hoping to attract everything i wanted

 

to bring them closer

within reach

so everything wouldn’t feel so far away all the time

(my arms were short back then)

 

i aligned them all so i could have a positive outlook on life

and keep all negativity behind me

 

positive forward

negative back

 

this was my first mistake

because i didn’t know how magnets worked yet

 

today

i am unwillingly drawn towards people who forget about me

after thoughts

 

and repel those who i want

 

every time i try to reverse this

there’s resistance

 

opposites attract

apparently

 

science is a bitch

apparently

 

i’ve turned my back on those who have never tried

because i believe i deserve better

 

i know i deserve better

(which is funny because that’s usually the time when i hear from them

 

again

opposites attract

apparently)

 

but my reach

is larger today

(though it’s still pretty short

in retrospect)

 

i will not force attractions that were never there to begin with

nor will i change my positive outlook

 

ever

because it’s what i deserve
