Verse: Wordplay

I have it
on good authority
that these words
met by chance once

initially hesitant
and wary, they gradually
warmed to one another
recognizing that
they had much in common

after a long courtship
they consummated
their relationship
and although happy together
they gradually grew
quarreling over
their arrangement

Given to interjections
and occasionally possessive
they found the present tense
and mourned the past
which always seems perfect
in hindsight

Despite abiding affection
and respect
they chose to part
after a short sentence
yet remained
on good terms
reminiscing fondly
on the occasions when
brought together
by fate
about that sweet
brief period
