I wanted to do something different today. My husband hates to read but I think he is secretly creative. I challenged him to write something and as we woke up today I asked what he had for me and he said nada….I am not motivated. So instead he acquiesced to doing a poetic duel with me.
By the Husband and Hastywords
Once upon a time
We had young hearts
They beat much faster
When love seemed simpler
Life was fun
Romance came easy
She was my focus
My crush giving way to love
He was shy, double shy
I drove miles to see his smile
Late nights, tickle fights
Dreading times apart
She was young and wild
Making me feel like a man
Late nights, new heights
Dreading times apart
He was better than me
Sophistication I had never been
His heart spoke to mine
He made me a better me
Years have passed
Our bodies have slowed
We have changed
Our hearts have grown
Full of trials that try to distance us
From the love we hold between us
We still work hard at being us
Fixing broken spaces between us
With no time apart
Our roots are strong
Twisted and knotted
Eternally intertwined as one

Oh! Goosebumples! I love it!!! My darling prince said he would do it. Wow! We have our work cut out for us!
I’ll see if I can pin him down this weekend–to write I mean!
I forgot to interview my husband! Crap! Maybe I will later… Wink-wink 🙂
Hmmmmm! We’ve only been married six months. Does that even count as a marriage? But we’ve been together in spirit for almost 30 years, as you may have gathered from my Romantic Monday story. We still do our share of …..interviewing. wink right back
Really. Well, no not really. It was 1983 remember, so it’s really only 29.
YEAH! Misterwords has mad poetz skillz! (Did you mean to say duet? Because duel is so…)
That was sweet and nice, like a tiramisu.
Me too. We just got a whole tiramisu from the store.
Duel, duet, isn’t it all the same?
However it happened, the results are beautiful.

Impressive and true romance there. Well done.
This made me think of my lady and nearly brought me to tears. Very lovely. 🙂
Wow, between you and Mr. Words, I bet the kids have mad skillz!
(And that’s the last time I’m ever using that phrase.)
Lovely… and the photo is amazing 😉
Not sure how I missed this. The mister is good!
