Not too close and yet not too far

Got to let you know how I feel

Hold my hands and walk with me

Not too close that we step on each other

Not too far to look like we are moving away from one another

Not too fast to drag me with you

Not too slow to make me drag you

With enough space to let us breathe

And enjoy the ‘us’ with considerable ease

I don’t know what the heck that is. Is it poetry? or is it prose? I don’t care. It is just an expression.

Yesterday was a pretty interesting day and the above text (let us make it generic) was the outcome of some serious discussions that happened during the lunch with my close friends, where I was telling them how I feel a relationship should be (a marital relationship I mean). What do you think?

    Yes, this is how relationships should be, even the closest ones.

    It would be the “ideal relationship” KG. A willful meeting of equals who wish to share their lives with each other.

      That is true, Leslie and it takes a lot of effort too.

        It does take a lot of work, KG, but it is well worth it to have a rich and fulfilling relationship.
