Pearl 24 – Small Spaces


How does a relationship survive
Years of close living,
The minutiae of daily giving,
The no-holds-barred corral of small spaces
Where every act is scrutinised
And criticised?
When did we grow tolerant of
Invading each other’s space,
Being up close in each other’s face,
Of rolling to the wrong side of the bed?

We’ve created an alternative reality
Where we no longer see
Details that could irritate –
They fade away
And love lives another day.
Individually we remain the same,
We retain the same name
But we have emerged as a unified being,
Far more forgiving,
Able to share small spaces with confidence
And congruence.
