Yes. I Remember - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
After pleading with you,
To come back to me on my knees...
You want for me to react as if,
Nothing surrounds you but rhapsody?
While you attempt to change the scene,
With the burning of incense?
With a pinch of myrrh?
You must have seen this on Oprah?
Or Animal Planet!
One of those channels that struck a nerve.
I did not apologize because I was in the wrong.
And you were right!
I just thought it stupid for us to fight,
Over who's turn it is to turn off the lights.
We've never had these arguments before...
When we would peel clothes off,
In broad daylight.
As soon as we got behind closed doors.
And now you want me to reach for you,
And with a blindfold on too?
I was the one who said...
'For better and for worse.
If necessary by the pound! '
Put the blindfold on.
And turn off the lights.~
