My maths was right!! Tahts what I was trying to do. But if your paths are perpendicular wont you just pass by each other?? — MFine
It doesn't make sence. Perpendicular lines don't meet. But I guess they do 'run together'. — CantTell
perpendicular lines intersect. paths intersecting?
get it? — unknown
Yes they intersect, but then keep going and move in different directions!!!
Im assuming you want to stay with this person, sorry I djust cant see it making sense, Im not sure if Im right or stupid!! — MFine

I read this as paths that have meandered apart will come close again, going in the same direction. If I'm the only one who gets the horizontal part....blush! — Isabelle5
horizontal=sex — unknown
its about having a long distance lover and being horny right now — unknown
I took this as "I hope we meet up and fuck again" — InMyBlood
Kind of clever — unknown
simple and sweet. more people should rate this! — unknown
inmyblood is right. god you peepul make stuf so complicificatorated sometimes. :)
perpendicular can have 2 meanings here but one is more than you need. — noodleman
poetry is about playing with words. complication has nothing to do with it whatsoever — Xiada
i cant believe some people here dont even know the meaning of perpendicular.
to all of u who STILL cant figure it out:
perpendicular = L <--that means yes those two lines meet. they dont necessarily cross each other. she didnt say, 'i hope our paths become a plus'. sheesh, people.
it's amazing, reading others comments, and maybe im young and thats why i find this amazing, but how a couple of words can make such a clatter. either way, this poem sparked something in everyone - well done. — sedena
Cute and to the point....the loveseat knows!!! — essenie
oh this is cute! wonderfully simple and clever. — SteelAngel
The many folks who pointed out that perpendicular lines NEVER cross are correct.
Perpendicular lines do not cross, they travel next to each other. That didn't make a dent in my enjoyment because we often travel beside people and suddenly get "horizontal" with them, when we realize they are there and other good stuff. — Isabelle5
I'm thinking of train tracks running horizontal and perpendicular to each other - ahh true love a runaway train. — unknown
tee hee hee! — unknown
It's only three lines but its wonderful! I love it. — greeneyedgrl
nice poem! — unknown
That is so sexy. Very yummy. Leaves me wanting more, but suitably fulfilled. Very well written! — WordsAndMe
awesome!!! I love the combination of logic and poetry... this has the harmony of a sine curve! — sparrow
Oh god, it seems to have been hard enough to explain that perpendicular lines meet at 90 degree angles....and now we have sine waves? That's a recipe for disaster. This poem, however, is not. The abrupt break on line two is especially effective, and line three is exceptional in that it adjusts itself to the feeling of the reader. Whether you read sex, death, relaxation, is up to you, and that's part of the beauty of this poem's simplicity. — phyridean
