The Wife…

wide

~

Twenty Three years…
Of the love delusion…

Twenty Three years…
Of cupid’s fucking illusion…

Twenty Three years…
Of badly fractured vows…

Twenty Three years…
Only God knows how…

Twenty Three years…
Of ups and downs…

Twenty Three years…
Of smiles, of frowns…

Twenty Three years…
Said it wouldn’t last…

Twenty Three years…
Hidden behind a mask…

Twenty Three years…
Navigating rough seas…

Twenty Three years…
Battling monotony…

Twenty Three years…
Forgiving, never forgetting…

Twenty Three years…
Of quietly regretting…

Twenty Three years…
Failing to communicate…

Twenty Three years…
Watching scars accumulate…

Twenty Three years…
Of the secrets and lies…

Twenty Three years…
Eye Will Not Cry…

Twenty Three years…
Of daily deceit…

Twenty Three years…
Can you feel my heartbeat…

Twenty Three years…
What have we done to each other…

Twenty Three years…
Will we ever recover…
