Anti Fairy Tale

He didn’t like her
And she didn’t like him
She was a flower
And he was a rock
She knew how to talk
But he didn’t know to listen
He knew how to lead
But she knew not to follow
She needed affection
He needed patience
She was sad and
He was angry
She teased him
He rattled her
She burned
He turned her ice
She wanted to smooth his rough edges
He wanted to eliminate her quirks
She would try to make the food more spicy
He was thinking always of his health
She had never met anyone more rigid
He no one more volatile and frayed
She would attack him with her rancorous words
He would attack her with his silent indifference
They clawed at each other trying to change each other
And they lived happily ever after.
