Deep Decline

Deep Decline

Who are you today?
Is it Jekyll or Hyde?
Good cop or bad cop?
This game I cannot bide
Each day a crap shoot
Already out on the ledge
No lucky in this dip
I’m teetering on the edge
Ephemeral happiness
lasting just two days
Then it was back fighting
and your ugly ways
A referee needed
our similarities forgotten
Too busy with anger
to see it’s turned rotten

    Whoa! Sounds like even a referee might not be able to make the right call.

      No, unfortunately in this poem the writer is at war with their partner 😢

        Oh, sorry must have misinterpreted.

        Lol! No worries. I guess if you were warring with yourself you’d need a therapist rather than a referee 😁

        That’s right!
