Yang

I’m missing                   my yang
Without    you    I’m in a tailspin
Without    you        I’m spiralling

     d
           s
Half of my
soul has        departed
If yang is     heaven   light     heat
why    do    I    feel    as     though

I’ve crossed-over 
                              into the after-life 
                                  since you left?

  1. Loving your layout. Very beautiful work. Really mesmerizing. Thanks for joining in on this. I never written companion pieces to a new poem, just more to historical ones. Again: brilliant work and many thanks!

      1. I won’t get into a debate about who deserves what praise… we both know I will win 😏 I will instead, simply say “teamwork makes the dream work” 😁

  2. What a brilliant piece, Secrets….I loved the “downwards” effect….the lines are quite deep…I read Ben’s Yin as well….wow when it comes to collab or writing such companion poetry, you both have a beautiful flow…..Keep expressing, Bree 💫💙

    1. Yes, they always connected in perfect balance. They hold a part of each other inside themselves (if you romanticise it). Thank you for taking the time to read and comment 🙂
