Relationships are like newly laid carpet

In the beginning you are so very careful

Tread lightly

Don’t dirty what’s new

Then as time passes and the excitement wears off

The newness doesn’t seem as new

You start taking risks

Shoes on but they’re clean – I’ll run through just this once

Slowly but surely the mistakes

Start to dirty what once was new

Until you drop a glass of wine

The worst bomb yet

And you are on your hands and knees

Trying to soak up and take away the eye sore

Wondering how it happened

If you could just have kept it new
