matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a metaphor

The metaphor is the union of an object so enamoured with another, one cannot help but imagine it saying, like the passionate shepherd to his love, “Come live with me, and be my love. From this point on, your strengths will be my strengths, and my strengths will be yours.”

The cynic would at this point probably add: “And what about your weaknesses? Never you mind. It’ll only take a few months before one of your contemporaries publishes his own thoughts on these, ironically coupling his poem to yours forever.”
