What a Dramatic Time It Has Been – A Poem

What a dramatic time it has been for us.

How could I have said all of those

terrible things to you?

I am so very sorry!

What about all of the terrible things

that you said to me too.

Aren’t you sorry?

No you are not?

That is certainly not

what I wanted to hear.

Where do we go from here?

This horrible rift has lasted all year.

What a dramatic time it has been for us.

Sometimes, I am just in a daze.

Feeling a dreary haze

surrounding me.

Longing for your gaze

attentive to me and

you looking at me lovingly

rather than resentfully.

Where do we go from here?

What a dramatic time it has been

for us.

How can we ever reconcile

when your attitude is just so vile,

haughty and unapologetic?

Oh, am I saying terrible things again?

Perhaps I should stop myself but

to me, it is just the truth.

You have been acting so uncouth

and I will call you out.

I will say it like I see it.

What has happened between us

is feeling very tragic

for me, at least.

Devastating.

What a dramatic time it has been

for us.

For someone like me who tries

very hard to avoid drama,

all of this has been rather extreme.

I am ready to wake up

from the bad dream.

What a dramatic time it has been

for us.

Why can’t we have

more unity and solidarity.

Why can’t you just care?

Are we really all that different?

Or are you just indifferent?

What a dramatic time it has been

for us.

When the outside observer

sees all of the intense drama.

When the outside observer

sees things falling apart,

and wants to contribute his

two cents

by saying,

“Maybe you two just did

not have much in common

and that could be why things

are not working out.”

I just want to scream –

“but we do, but we do

have quite a lot in common!”

I just want to shout.

None of this was

about a lack of compatibility.

I loved you so very dearly

And I still do

but how about an

attitude adjustment please?

That would be nothing

To sneeze

at.

Indeed, I need an attitude

adjustment too.

What a dramatic time it has been

for us.
