'For Godsake Hold Your Tongue And Let Me Love' - Poem by John Thorkild Ellison
Please be quiet, little friend,
You're driving me right round the bend!
I'm sick and tired of your whining voice,
You're giving me no other choice
But to slam the door and go outside
Which really hurts my foolish pride.
You're keen to voice your point of view
But for Heaven's sake I have feelings too!
When will you ever give me peace?
When will your petty grumblings cease?
Don't you remember there was a time
We loved each other very much,
We trembled at each other's touch
And quarrelling just seemed a crime?
I've really had enough of this!
Let's banish anger with a kiss,
Either that or go to bed -
Shut up, my love, enough's been said! !
The title of this verse is a quotation from a famous poem by John Donne.
