Opposites attract

Prompt: Use the words 'next', 'clinical' and 'cautious' in a poem.

Your charisma and the spark

in your eyes draw people in.
Infectious enthusiasm,
irresistible charm.

More cautious,
I need coaxing
to join your next
grand adventure.

Despite external analysis,
(and doubt)
there's nothing clinical
about the passion, the core
of love we rely on.

We know that you can build
a marriage on trust, love,
and laughter.
The rest....
           will work itself out.
