The Perfect Duet (A collaboration post)

Hi guys, I’m back writing with Pooja from lifesfinewhine.

We came up with this duet in relatively next to no time. That’s how natural it ebbed and flowed.

I hope you all enjoy this;
Pooja wrote in (normal italics).
I did the (bold italics)
Watch out for those six word stories at the end, little delights.

He takes me out to my favourite restaurant
I say no to dessert but he orders some anyway
And then we go for a romantic movie
And hold each other close
The perfect ending to a perfect day

She comes whenever I need her
She favours wine but brings whiskey for two
And when we go to watch my favourite team
She spouts banter on my behalf
The perfect beginning to a perfect evening

He wants to spend the night at home
Just having pizza and watching some movies
He brings me flowers when I’m down
And laughs with me when I’m happy
He’s just there for me because he’s all I need

She wants to spend our free days in the park
Breathing the air and stealing kisses in public
She carries a snack when I’m not in the mood
Unhealthy and sweet, a special treat
She makes me believe that she’s everything I need

,

Is she too good for me

I know he can do better

Sometimes I wonder why she stays

Forever grateful he settled for me


I hope you enjoyed this.
I think the simple things are what make love perfect, amidst all its imperfections.

Pooja is an incredible person, quite gifted with insight and exceptionally kind.
Please go on over and have a look at her site; lifesfinewhine (you can thank me later)

  1. Love flowed seamlessly between the verses, complementing and completing it. The tiny six words stories were the cherry on the cake. Wonderful team work, Jude and Pooja!!

    Wonderful collaboration! The two voices (your voices) work so well together, like those couples who finish each other’s sentences.

    This is fine, collaborative work. The two voices, the irony in wondering (worrying) about the same things. I think couples can relate to this, and it would be the start of salient conversation.
