Lovers’ Quarrels

Misunderstanding is so natural
It’s a valid part of love
Without discord, we would be bored
With those we’re fondest of

Conflict adds a bit of spice
To the everyday mundane
Perpetual smiles are often wiles
To cover over pain

A disagreement now and then
Is fuel for passion’s fire
It stirs the coals and moves the souls
To wallow in their ire

There’s heartache in the quarreling
And truth in waking up
But oh, the fare two lovers share
When they are making up

I really like this Elizabeth.  As Dreamer said, you're very talented, and I enjoy reading your work.

Liz,

Wonderful poem.
I couldn't agree more. It's the people who say they have a perfect marriage because they never fight, that you have to be leery of.

Wonderful flowing words...Please excuse me now, I'm off for a good row

 May your roof never fall in and those beneath it never fall out.

Elizabeth,

This is very beautiful and so true for a lot of couples.  Very nice piece of work.
