Both Stubborn


I envy you
you envy me
I have in my possesion
things you haven‘t
you have in your possesion
things I haven‘t
maybe it‘s the law of life
or maybe we‘re just
both stubborn.

We both are loving each other
but desire different things.

Can‘t we really share the same things?
Can‘t we really have the same desires?
You and I
can‘t we really be the same?
....or we‘re just both stubborn.

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
