relationship


the sharp edges
of our crossed purposes

are so often hidden
behind the shield
of good intentions

Good one, Steve.
Sharp and to the point. (Horrible sort of pun!)
Still cold here too.

Ouch.

This is the very reason I kind of love being single!

As I get older I realize that good intentions are a shield for my co-dependence: needing the other to be helped by me. What a lot you packed into this haiku-esque poem, Steven. I like your take on the prompt.
