He charmed, you loved him. He punched, you crawled. He thumped, you cringed. He spent, you scrimped. He guffawed, you smiled within, keeping notes; a daily journal, with photos, secreted beneath the boards.
You cried, he lashed. You shared, we schemed. You smiled within, as over the edge we pushed. He lay, mouth agape with sorry, secreted beneath the boards.
The jury is still out.
