The Science

Form: Free Verse

And the pendulum swings back and forth
desire in constant movement
backwards and forwards
side to side
and always in-between
me holding back
you letting go
the pendulum swings back and forth

The pendulum swings freely
without resistance yet restrained
by limits of trajectory
as desire flows freely
bound by the limits of imagination
the equilibrium of want and need
and the pendulum swings back and forth

The pendulum swings in steady motion
never too fast
never too slow
me holding back
and you letting go
desire intensifies into lust
yet the balance remains the same
as the pendulum swings, back and forth
