Opposites attract
Similarity repels

Perhaps that is why
Their journey was so arduous
At the very core
Though neither would admit it
They needed the same
They wanted the same

Sometimes, when things went wrong
One would become like fire
And the other became like ice
The two could not coexist
A battle for supremacy would unfold

But somewhere on the battlefield
The light of reason would shine through
They would look at each other
And everything they had
Everything that was good
Would once again be renewed
