This Relationship Has Cracks In It - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

You-feel-that-you-need-to-be-loved,
More.
More.
More.
More!
I-feel-that-I-need-to-be-loved,
More.
More.
More.
More!

We try to see each other eye to eye.
But after arguments,
We tell each other goodbye.
And settle it by splitting quick...
To escape through an open door,
We close.

You-feel-that-you-need-to-be-loved,
More.
More.
More.
More!
I-feel-that-I-need-to-be-loved,
More.
More.
More.
More!

We talk about togetherness,
But wont.
We say we should discuss our differences,
But don't.
And this relationship,
Has cracks in it
That widens...
Like an Earthquake shake up!

You-feel-that-you-need-to-be-loved,
More.
More.
More.
More!
I-feel-that-I-need-to-be-loved,
More.
More.
More.
More!

We talk about togetherness,
But wont.
We say we should discuss our differences,
But don't.
And this relationship,
Has cracks in it
That widens...
Faster,
Than an Earthquake can shake up!
