Coupling

Arguments over outings.
I snore too much.
We don’t see our friends enough.
It was not the end.


You don’t share how you really feel.
I give in to to your wishes too often.
I’m not assertive at work.
It was not the end.


We don’t have passionate sex any more.
I’ve gained too much weight.
You sleep on the couch a lot.
It was not the end.


I told you I loved you more every year.
You said, “You get me like no other.”
I listened because I wanted to know.
It was the moment where we could begin.
