Something Like Yin And Yang

I wanted a chocolate chip cookie.
But she offered me raspberry jam.

I wanted a mug of hot chocolate.
But she offered me peach coffee.

I wanted a margarita with little palm tree ice cubes.
But she offered me hazelnut tea.

Everything that I wanted
Was not on her menu.

Everything that I wanted
Was never what she gave me.

I offered her peach coffee
But she wanted cherry wine.

I offered her chocolate chip cookies
But she wanted grapes plucked from an Italian vine.

I offered her hazelnut tea
But she wanted ice cream from a vendor who was top shelf.

Everything that I wanted
Was not what she wanted.

Everything that she wanted
Was nothing like what I wanted.

We don’t seem to get along.
Yet, somehow or other we do.
