Relationships And Carpet

Relationships are like newly laid carpet.

In the beginning you are so very careful,

Tread lightly,

Don’t dirty what’s new.

Then as time passes and the excitement wears off –

The newness doesn’t seem so new.

You start taking risks.

Shoes on, but their clean – I’ll run through just this once.

Slowly, but surely, the mistakes start to dirty what was once new.

Until you drop a glass of wine,

The worst bomb yet.

And you’re on your hands and knees..

Trying to soak up all the red,

Take away the eye sore,

Wondering how it happened..

If you could have only kept it new.
