[The duck-rabbit illusion can be used as a very suitable example to show how sometimes, we can have a certain opinion about things or people one minute and then have that perception completely altered the next. I wrote this for the person who, in my eyes, turned from a duck to a rabbit. Took me completely by surprise too.]
Would it were that I was given a day
To peel off all the layers
You, like a stubborn onion,
make me a green-eyed monster.
Because your world is much like mine
And you keep it out of reach.
Once I saw a little duck
Now this creature became a rabbit.
Where like-minded clones co-exist
Behold, a dark star
If, for a day, I could read you
Would your poetry be apt for me?
I realize I will never be warm
Till I’m lying in your arms.
