PoetVids - I am WriteBeLight only in Video Version :)

Tipsy Tirade



This was posted some five years ago at this site under my WriteBeLight name. The video may be slightly different.

They met many weeks ago.
Have a lot in common.
Outdoors and the same foods,
Other things together fond of.

Love notes back and forth.
The weeks that followed were happy.
Sticky sweet their words for each,
Some cliché and others sappy.

But soon in time, after all,
Their foundation began to crumble.
Got on each others' nerves,
Words under breath would mumble.

One night they met for drinks.
He had one too many.
Sparked a heated exchange.
Swear words, there were plenty.

Dust cleared, a wall between them.
Their faults made up its bricks.
Would there be a future for them?
Would this couple's love be fixed?

Don't know yet the story's ending.
Their next meeting place or venue.
No time right now to finish,
This story's to be continued.

But, one thing is for sure.
To some this applies, I think.
Alcohol fueled their fire,
Those two just shouldn't drink.
