The End of the Honeymoon period. (The beginning of the Real Relationship)

She is perfect, He is perfect.

She is so crazy about him.

He is constantly drooling over her.

Qualities gleam like a perfect crystal.

Intense feeling of attraction and ecstasy.

Butterflies in the stomach, heart palpitations


He built a castle in her heart.

She created a funeral march in his mind.

Lost in Sabor de amor; an incantation

of reverie lurked in their room.

Air between them shimmered with his

body heat and her magic as she turned

him up, and he turned her on.

An illusion of perfection caressed by

passionate love. Enchanted! Lulled into

a magical world by her dulcet voice,

his husky voice.

Cadence of euphoric waves reflecting on

their skin.

Two lovers waltzing under the moon light.

She is dazzling like a princess, he is a knight

in a shiny armor.


She oozes happiness around him.

Turned on by the smell of his sweat.

He’s joyfully insane over her.

Loving the smell of her breath in the morning.

Constant agreement, taking his word as the

Gospel truth.

No fighting, agreeing to everything she says.

More flowers and calls at dusk.

More homemade dinners and texts at dawn.

Frequent nights of passion, the sex is

regular, spontaneous and amazing!


Heavenly bliss fades away like smoke with time.

The bells of reality summons their hearts like

sonorous wheezes in the cold.

The calls drop, the text messages and dates

reduce. He doesn’t buy flowers anymore.

She has stopped preparing dinner on a regular.

Love making has reduced and isn’t as great.

He is boring, she is rigid. Monotony rules,

their relationship is now a routine job

and a constant power struggle.

Fugacious emotions, sublime happiness

decreases summoning the blame game.

She is constantly complaining about everything.

His ardor for her is decreasing with each day.

Fights, arguments, and disagreements have

replaced the passion that rocked their happy

home. She feels neglected, he feels accused.

He has stopped doing the things he used to do.

She is taking him for granted.


They have forgotten what brought them together.

They are not doing the little things they used to do

for one other.

They detest the things that attracted them to one

another during the genesis of their relationship.

Benighted! She is crying and holding in her pain.

He is angry and not opening up. Loss of effective

communication. Love is up on the shelf, Trust is tested.


They must salvage their relationship.

Tolerate and love each other with all their faults

understanding and trusting each other. Lower their

expectations and appreciate the love they have.

Acclimate to one another, sacrifices must be made.

The honeymoon is over; it’s the beginning of a real

relationship. Words have been said, hearts broken.

Facts are out, truth is plain.

She isn’t perfect, he isn’t perfect.

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.

  1. Towards the middle I started to wander yet again your words touched my spirit until the finale of woe. It is hard for me to believe that a relationship may start with such ferocity and then simmer down without rekindling but your vibrant, tenacious character had me gripping the realm of reality between insane and sane. Just love the way you move, draw, and speak upon character flaw. Great word play!

    1. Thank you for reading, Antonio.
      You know usually most relationships are caught up in the twilight zone after the Honeymoon period.
      As humans, consistency is a hard thing.
      The few that are able to re-build and strengthen their relationship after that period make it. Thank you for the compliment. I appreciate alot.
