We love in sarcasm

We take turns playing the fool,

you hurt me then I hurt you


We love in irony

You call it love

But your actions say other things


We love in euphemisms

Down playing the pain we exchange

and exaggerating how much we want to make this work


We love in 21st Century speak

We know divorce and every escape,

struggling to state reasons to stay.
