Bitter-sweet

Why do we not embrace the bitter,

as with the sweet?

The sadness,

as with the joy?

For

just like it is with colour,

the opposite intensifies the truth of the other.

Bitter-sweet.

Why do we not embrace the bitter, as with the sweet?

The sadness, as with the joy?

For,

just like it is with colours –

the opposite intensifies the truth of the other.
