Poem Of The Day #36

Talks continue until voices grow hoarse and weary;
questions keep coming, people hesitating, zoom call extending. 
By force or by choice, through practice or theory? 
Decisions made and unmade. Polite listening and pretending.

Temper comes from too much caring-- 
just let it go. 
We can't stop the ceaseless comparing--
life's tragedy and woe.

He proposes a way or two, but she would disagree.
Her smile and eloquence, he refuses to praise. 
The tug of war, the battle of will, sometimes over a cup of tea.
Still they will be forever and ever--love is a craze. 

Holiday is almost gone--
weight gains a ton. 
Life goes on. 
Next year fun or no fun?
