Poem Couple’s Therapy

If you were in a trance– I’d shake you

If you were not-all-the-way-baked– I’d bake you

If you were false and fake– I’d unfake you

If your human design was skewed– I’d remake you

I may have failed redoing you, yet the lesson at least for one, still got through

that needing to rectify your imperfections made me more imperfect than you

In facing truth; and when I came to understand this fact foremostly,

faint recollection of where I’d seen those very traits…oh yes… in me

That irritating little thing change does, coming when it sees fit; deliberate, behind the scenes and keeping score

Taking its place only after the lesson is learned and hearts are broken and won’t step in not one minute nor one lover before
