What Is The Matter With A Gripe Between Two Lovers

Updated on August 5, 2013

Hot and Heavy

Then why am I sleeping on the couch


It all began one saturday afternoon

Where my wife got to stay home from her job and I had to work

I have a three hour drive a day

Hour and a half each way

After work when we both work

She drives home because I get tired

I usually drive down in the morning

Later at night on the way home

My eyes get sleepy and I sometimes take a nap

We work it out so we both share

Now this day is in question

I got myself in some very hot water

I felt like a lobster boiling

And soon it only got worse instead of better

I told my wife I had a few erands to do and I was going to hook up with my cousin for awhile

All she said was be home at a reasonable hour

She knows me only too well

I find it hard to break away when I am having fun

I lose track of time in the past

Especially since my cousin lives out of state

I told her I would come back as soon as I can

I will call her every hour and give her an update

i did call four times

Isn't that enough ?

Apparently not

Nothing I do is good enough

You are only happy if you got your own way

So in the morning I was busy at work

I worked 9 to 5

Off to do some errands

Four hours later everything working out good

Then I called my cousin to see if we get together

When I did they were having fun with family playing a game of Taboo

I joined in after awhile and two hours after that the game was over

We chatted for a bit then I went to get some more things done

The time is now two o'clock A.M. and I am leaving

My wife called and he go to talk to her

I called just before this to say how the day is going well

Then there was a two hour lapse

I called my wife again to tell her I misplaced my phone and I am on my drive home

You are suppose to be home already

Plans changed no big deal

She let me have it

All I could hear was Niagra Falls on the other side

We will talk when I get home

Sorry to worry you but I would of been just coming in the door a half hour late

How she didn't hear I should of called sooner

But I didn't have a phone and I was alone

In my travels I lost my phone and now I have it

Now I am about to begin my drive home

That will bring me in my door about 5:30

What did yu know I was day dreaming on my way home and I missed my exit

Then had to back track and I walked in the door at 5:55

She was sound a sleep

I was a good tired after the long day

All and all I loved the way the day turned out

Then I listened even further

The drama queen continued to cry me a river

The end is almost near

I arrived safely and everything else is water under the bridge

We both could of been half wrong and half right

So instead of arguing and getting nothing accomplished

Lets both try to do better

I will call you so you don't worry

You won't over react and panic

Calling my cousin to check up on me

I am a responsible adult and some days we will be apart

I have some plans that I want to do

I don't need your seal of approval

I had so much fun and you stayed home and watched t.v.

So we dropped the conversation

Now back to our old days

Then why am I shut off like water that goes into the house

You have a headache and are going to bed

The couch has my name on it

I have been jolted by a womans scorn

Hold all your horses and don't let them go

Because now is not the time to sow your wild oats

      ladydeonne My wife wanted me to come home after visiting for awhile and I told her I would call her every hour to tell her I am having fun and even though I worked all day and I was tired I wanted to stay.A few hours was not enough time.We are older and just hang around and talk and ended up playing a board game.We don't even drink.I think she just didn't understand it was more important to do that and get three hours sleep and go to work the next day and struggle than miss out.As for cheating or doing something illegal we have seen too many people ruin their lives with bad choices and wrong decisions.We love each other too much to throw our lives away.Thanx so much for the wonderful comments and all your concern.Heres to a world of writings waiting to be written.Have a great day.

      I think that with maturity comes wisdom and trust. There is absolutely no reason for you to have to check in with your wife every hour. Is there something you're leaving out? Is she fearful that you are cheating on her or that you're doing something illegal? (LOL)

      That sounds pretty frustrating! It really is hard to stop when you're having fun, though. Better luck next time!

      I hope you had a great weekend.
