Not for fixing

We don’t need help

He says to she

We’re perfectly happy

As this couple should be.

 

We don’t need words

He thinks this time

And, besides, above all

Silence isn’t a crime.

 

We don’t need fixing

He attempts to say

As she closes the door

And walks away.

 

We don’t need us

He remarks to the wall

All of this bickering

Isn’t working at all.

 

But I needed you

She struggled to say

To a he whose words

Had all run astray.
