Reading Between the Lines

In fairness, he came from the wrong side of the tracks
In fairness, he was right off the rails
In fairness, he had a face not only a mother could love

And she liked to judge books by their covers

In fairness, she had her head in the clouds
In fairness, she sought greener pastures
If truth be told, she dreamed of happily-ever-afters

And he liked happily-under-the-covers

She believed in love at first sight
He loved her the minute he saw her
They loved like there was no tomorrow

Love is blind more often than not

In fairness, his world was white and black
While she gazed through rose tinted glasses
In fairness, it was the green eyed monster

Who stuck a knife in her back

  1. And what we sometimes do not want to admit, is read between the lines.
    I enjoyed the form and definitely the way the speaker juxtaposed himself to her.
