Out Of Step With Love - Poem by Yor Nella
'Didn't Peter do well at school', she said
Again he felt that great feeling of dread
It didn't even enter his mind to ask
He'd been too busy working on his task.
'Did you see my sunflowers? ', she had cried
'No, I didn't see them', he had replied.
Once again he knew he had failed the test
to meet yet another loving request.
Earlier that day he made a mistake
Drank her coffee during the morning break
'That's it', she said, 'This will not do'
'Next time I'll make milky coffee for two'
'You're over reacting', he said to her
but the words went unheard, were just a blur.
Something's not right, It must be me
whatever's causing this I cannot see.
But two days ago we had an affray.
She reacted in an emotional way.
I'd dug the grass and should have left it all
for her to treat instead with chemical.
'You never do what you promise', she said
'I knew I could not rely on what you said'
Oh how can these things ever be resolved?
They're so complicated and involved.
I am so ashamed in having to say
it is what I've done that's made her this way.
Oh, how will I ever earn her trust again?
and cease from causing her such awful pain.
