Crossed Wires Do Spark Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

Crossed Wires Do Spark



Why did you, once the apple of my eye,
and that of a close friend (I knew) ,
why did you then unleash the fury
which was meant to make a point,
I do not understand the rationale behind.
I always meant to be your friend,
to help you understand this rotten world,
to hold you up beneath unshaven pits,
enlist your brother in a vain attempt
to drum the missing sense into a brain
that had been laughing at that sillyputty pain.
I know that talking in the open will not do
no woman hears the little signals of a man,
I cannot help it though and all of it is true,
I cannot help myself, I ask of you: Who can?

Note:

No, sorry, my marriage is fine. I have learned to shut up.

COMMENTS OF THE POEM
Ted Sheridan 18 May 2008

The last note said it all for me. I've been married over twenty five years to the same woman because I learned to shut up when she's mad about something. It is one of the hardest things in the world for me to do but for her...I do it.
