“Let them back off today because it is early for these arguments.”  –  Pablo Neruda

And upon finishing – 

The first, last coffee of the day, 

An eye fell upon

Two lovers, 

Mid argument, 

Or perhaps compromise – 

One can never tell

I suppose;

That Love battles

It is –  I thought;

A riddle, 

Not to be understood, 

But an understanding, 

Between two individuals – 

With just enough pride, 

To lay down their weapons, 

And embrace the storm.
