Why We Argue... - Poem by Reginald Goodridge

Because its a burning sensation
hot and raw, unabated
inflammatory with angry overtures
insatiable urges can't be satiated

You speak a lot of what if's
I make promises I don't keep
we bubble violently then fizz
you yell outside, though inside you weep

Let's make a bet
statistics will play this out
we keep arguing and fussing
somehow we'll both lose this bout...
