Inseparable Rivals





The unreliability of you perplexes me
For you are fickle as the wind we hear but cannot see
How easily you change your mind, and though you seem appealing
Your passion is quite undefined for you are merely Feeling

You stir my soul to poetry and toy with my emotion
Yet you know nothing of reality of true devotion
Your piety, seduction, fantasy can leave me reeling
Yet I can never trust you for you are nothing but Feeling

If I depend on you then I am pitiful at best
For one day you are naked and the next day over-dressed
I must search God’s sure promises for hope and help and healing
For though you rage within me yet, you are nothing but Feeling

The unreliability of you perplexes me
We, inseparable rivals agree to disagree
For you depend on circumstance and I find you appealing  
Your intense vaunt excites me yet, still you are merely Feeling

  1. I really like this one! Especially enjoyed this line:
    "For one day you are naked and the next day over-dressed"

    Well done.
