The Distraction of Opposites.

       Michael Naples

Scorpio's air of mystery is certain to excite
Aries, who's like a bumbling moth attracted to a light.
And since the air of mystery is allied with a sensual flair,
With more than a hint of aggression, they seem a likely pair.
They share energy and passion, but both demand control,
And in anything and everything both want the leading role.
But Aries likes outside interests, while Scorpio tends to brood,
The opposites let fly and then they end up with a feud!
Both are selfish, tempers fly, they fight things out in bed,
No hearts and flowers lead to sex, just plain old 'seeing red'!
Just for a while this will suffice; they'll think their union great,
But Scorpio secretly resents the more outspoken mate.
Both of them are opinionated and certain that they're right,
So life is full of fireworks in the day and in the night!
Some people like to live this way, in danger as it were,
They accept the sharp claws of the beast and answer with a purr.
But as the years go by it seems these opposites won't attract,
Better get it out of their systems
Before the bags are packed!

As someone who has always been fascinated with astrology (a childhood interest) I really like that you turned it into a poem!

Indeed - truth in charts! Nice work, as always - the depth is wonderfully right.

Apart from the Poemic representation...
What you write seems to be soooo true :-))))
