Crossed Wires.



Crossed Wires.


Always gyrating, deplete from neediness
sad relationships zigzag between circuits
of in-complete spheres that rotating feed
spirals of tight-crossed wires by inserting
charged breaks in partner-contacts. Bent
on pivotal lack a shock can reel at vortex
and begin knock-back swerving by meant
uncaring detours around known shortage
in harmful instalments when commitment
to defective love reaps force turned bitter.

A blown fuse needs tools of improvement.

    A short circuit to a power outtage. When sparks fly, and theres so much resistance around the ohm. Watt can one do but reverse polarity. Even in an ac/dc relationship the voltage has to be maintained or it will lead to a terminal strip. Switched off.

    Well you can see i'm currently transformed by your capacitance for poetic circuitry.

      You metaphors do you credit my friend - a big smile of thank you for this analogy- charged comment with such a complimentary last line.

      Crossed wires can lead to many a broken heart. The antidote: Listening with the heart. Great write Fay.

      • Fay Slimm.

        Yes wholeheartedly agreed my friend -- listening with the heart can heal lots of flying sparks.

        Good write Fay.

        • Fay Slimm.

          Thank you for your visit and read dear Orchi.

          Lovely printed circuit,
          Stay safe, Bill

          • Fay Slimm.

            So pleased you enjoyed the read Bill. Crossed wires certainly can be a challenge to close relationships.

          • ANGELA & BRIAN

            Good Evening Fay - Brian here - Love the perfect Geometry (a circuit box ?) in the Form & Function of your electrifying (ELECTR) ODE ! I teach Physics (Electronics & Electridity) and your ODE (judging by the replies) seems to have flipped everybodies SWITCH ! In my experience a DIRECT CURRENT (Love Affair) seemd preferable to an ALTERNATING ONE ! After three years of Courtship our Love Circuit is still intact and has (so far) survived the High Voltage Surge of MARRIAGE and no blown FUSES yet from the resisitance of LOCKDOWN. However with the MORTGAGE & the ARRIVAL of SMOKEY we find we are having to put more BOBS in the METRE to keep the Home Lights and Fires Burning Brightly - AMEN !

            Blessings & Joy & Peace
            Love Brian & Angela 💛💛💛

            So many crossed wires can be found in some relationships but once the electrician has sorted them out the power of love will shine through in all its brilliance.
