to meet to assess if there’s something
over similar tastes and sweet nothings
from beneath the lashes, wondering if there’s reason to reject
eyes entangled, hearts somersault did effect
at first sight; is it even real?
with every detail, however trivial!
isn’t it actually lust after a fashion?
how can a mere touch ignite fiery passion!
to remain faithful to each other forever
each other in this lifetime and ever
together as a team whatever the times
to not disagree on parenting paradigms
the nuances of what is left unsaid
the boundaries that are never set
not your voice, temper the temper
not each other but anger’s ember
the differences that make one who they are
adjust, not complain nor needlessly spar
should not dim the zeal nor the fervour
hearts always beating in tandem with ardour.
Written for dVerse MTB. Today’s host, Laura, says; today’s poetry prompt it’s all about couples, twos, in other words couplets!
The poetic form I have used, as suggested by Laura, is the côte.
