Tailor Made Love - Poem by David Beckham

In the moment of rage
Will I yell out obscenities?
Will I?
Yes I will!
“How dare you stand me up”
”How dare you not call? ”
“Inconsiderate idiot! ”
“Arrgh! ”
“You know what? ”
“Do not ever call me”
“ I don’t want to see you again”
“Do not! ”
“I repeat, do not! ”
[Sob, tears, her head buried in her thighs]
Gasping for breath
Head drowned in disappointment
The sword is drawn
And love, its victim
He ought to have thought about the consequences of his actions
“Cut me some slack, I was out drinking with the boys, ” he said
You knew you had responsibilities to me, but failed to honor it
“You are so spoiled, ” he continued
“With you its always, once upon a time…
There lived a beautiful princess
She had it so good that
Everything was always on time “delivery” with her
It was always like clock work with her and Prince charming…
Could do nothing wrong, ”
But today, Prince charming was out partying with the boys
Got a bit carried away with time and now the verdict is in
“Cut him loose! ”
“He is nothing but a looser and an ingrate! ”
“How did we get to that, my love? ” He said
‘I do want to hear that”
“Call me selfish, but I don’t want to hear that! ”
“It’s over”
“Can you come get me I can’t drive? ” He said
“Hell no! ”
“You stay your ass wherever you at! ”
More tears, more cries
Not enough time to think
Her feelings are going numb
Is rage, her guilty pleasure?
If you cant drink and drive
Why talk crazy under rage?
What happened to?
“Honey, that is okay, we all make mistake, I’ll cook you up some soup
That outta make you feel good in a bit, ”
“I aint doing shit” she said to herself
“What is this a social reform, we gotta treat love differently now? ”
“Cut love some slack
If it’s too loose, love will slip through
If it’s too tight, love will choke
Cut love some slack…
For there will be times when love will grow a bit out of control
But not out of your fit
There will be times when love might be in thin supply
But still within your fit
With all considerations
It should be tailor made love
A-ha, I see your point! ” She said
“You are the best prince”
“You the my best princess”
“How about we just kiss and make up”
“And cut our love according to our size? ”
