Renewal

“I shouldn’t have hit you,” you say.,
As you pass me my green tee.

“I threw a pan at you,” I say,
As I put it in my suitcase.

“How did we come to this,” you ask,
Holding our favorite photo frame.

“I won’t be taking that,” I tell you,
Reminiscing how happy we were.

“What about this?,” you ask,
Holding the scrap-book we made.

“What happened to us?” I ask,
Reaching out to your hand instead.

“We played the blame game,” you say,
Pulling your hand away.

“Do you still love me?,” I ask,
Teary eyed, I look at you.

“Just as much as you do,” you reply,
And pass me the mug you got me for Valentines.

“It doesn’t matter now,” I say,
As I squeeze the mug between my clothes.

“Let’s renew it,” you say,
Pulling our scrap-book out.

“What do you mean,” I ask,
As confused as I can be.

“We shared love,” you say,
Opening a picture of us.

“Now let’s share the blame too,” you continue,
With your eyes full of hope.
“I’m sorry, I was horrible,” I apologize,
You just shake your head in disapproval.
“We are sorry, we messed it up,”  you say,
As you wrap your arms around me.

“Let’s fix our mess,” I reply,
As I pass you my blue jeans.

    After the storm comes the calm. If love still persists, it can be “renewed” leaving bitter moments behind.

    This is an interesting poem. I like the heartfelt apologies shared and acknowledged.
    Recognition that there is no one at fault just the way responses to feelings became a new story with walls.
    Where does the story go from here?
    Do they seek the root of the conflict?
    Is there a happy ending?

    RENEWAL (MARITAL BLISS V)

    Amid the
    Slowly settling
    Smouldering rubble
    Of what remained
    Of the living room,

    Still faintly quivering
    With the last echoes
    Of our screaming havoc,

    She took a deep breath,
    Rubbed her hands together and smiled.

    “Well,” she said, “that’s cleared the air.
    Shall we have a cup of tea?”

    ~~~~~ ~ ~~~~~

    My partner (and I for that matter) wish to deny that this piece in any way describes our relationship. 🙂

      2. Ben Naga says:

        I recall reading years ago that laughter often arises when a person (or a group/audience) is suddenly confronted with something which is completely at odds with the way they are currently (mentally) viewing a certain scene. Look at any Monty Python skit for example. In this case a couple who have just had a blazing row when she has returned to her senses and proposes they go back to “normal” as if what just happened did not occur.
