Our communication
is lacking, it’s almost nonexistent
Your attitude is that of
a scalded cat
When can we have a
Surely we can do better
than that?

A hot tin roof
is where you’ve been
Time to come down
and settle the score
Harmony is what we need
in our relationship
Like it was
once before

Stop moving away from me
as if I’m not here
You are acting like
a stranger
Someone I don’t know
Come on darling talk to me
We are in clear
and present danger

    Excellent poem. The rhyming is good and the tension you create is really brilliant.

    Hi Christine! Nice to see you here. We never learn about communication and yet, it is such an important aspect of relationship. Your poem really sets the tension.
