Antipode, by Lbilover

Written for the dictionary.com word of the day 'antipode', which means 'a direct or exact opposite'.


You're my antipode. Light where I'm dark. Simple where I'm complex. Straightforward where I'm neurotic. Natural where I'm calculating. Accepting where I'm questioning.


You're the lightning rod, I'm the lightning. Drawn irresistibly to you from the moment we met, you ground me.


'It'll never work. You're too different from each other.' How many times were we told that?


But we do work, not in spite of but because of our differences.


And because in one very important way you aren't my antipode. When I look in your eyes I see myself reflected back: a man forever and hopelessly in love.
