Opposites Attract


It is the Dawning of the Dusk

when Night is born from its Twilight.

It is then, when words are channeled,

attempting to amuse our muse

with its shrouded ties to the wise,

from positively negative

to negatively positive.

Yet, some words will still enslave us,

while some will fervently free us

from fearing to Love our lost Love

to Loving our first founding fear,

feeling so happy we could cry

with the warmth of tepid tears

that become so crystallized cold,

it burns with the heat of dry ice.

In this Twilight chill of the Night,

when Dawn transitions into Dusk,

the consistent magnetic pull

leads the way in its push away,

rejecting its own kindred kind

with an attraction to fully fill

each other’s void to become whole,

always reaching for the other side

to attract and be attracted

to connect and be satisfied…

Justin HartAbout the Writer

Justin Hart came from humble beginnings. As a child, he was faced with dealing with the rough streets of East Los Angeles. Justin found an escape within the fantasy stories of Greek Mythology. He started writing his own creations at the age of 14.  His creative writing offered a world where he could cleverly express his fears and passions regarding the dualistic nature of our wayward world.  Justin continued pursuing writing through college; where he went on to teach English, Journalism, and Drama in the Los Angeles Unified School District. He was a celebrated teacher and an inspiration to his students, yet he humbly states that it was his students who inspired him.

Aside from being a teacher and a poet, Justin has been a photographer, videographer, musician, composer, and counselor. As his best friend and wife of 30+ years, I have been blessed to experience much of this genuine man’s creative endeavors, compassion, and magic. Now, you have an opportunity to traverse some of Justin Hart’s CTU poetic voyages. Enjoy the journey into his latest collection of poetic gems, “The Dawn of Pondering Passions.”  Follow Justin’s work at: www.Harmonic-Hart-Visions.com
