Just one Word too Many

We had our differences And on occasion, a tiff crops up With just a word too many. Angrily she looked at me steadily. “I’m going to my mum. Don’t wait for me!” She left slamming the door behind her. I knew her too well. It was enough to make me sick. Would pleading forgiveness be enough for her? Would a bunch of perfumed roses bring enough good humour? A lunch out? Anything... Just tell me. It would be enough. The door opens and in she comes grinning. “I bought you some pizza, my love.”

Hey, Victor, I walked out once and had to ring the door bell because I forgot my car keys.......I was never very good at running away from home

There will be tiffs and squabbles in family life. It's natural. But if one is able to come to a compromise or show a gesture of warmth, all bitterness will melt like ice. A real slice of life

Hopefully the pizza didn't have too much garlic on it...the kiss you probably received would have been a bit strong! Sweet!

Sometimes its really hard to stay angry, specially with someone as sweet as you Victor. You wrote this straight from the heart and it shows. A lovely poem all about love.

Love shows us emotions we never knew we had. They say, "Better to have had any love, then to never have loved at all." All's fair!
