They say love lasts forever, alas I beg to differ,
Tell me you can look in the mirror--
And sternly admit to a life without flip-flopping,
Between a quitter and a winner.
You spend your time calving out an image,
of the perfect life, the perfect wife--
Oblivious to her wishes, her dynamic ambitions,
Offering your warm heart but to change minds in an instant.
I lost myself with and without you,
For years we were an inseparable two,
Ready to take on the world full-force--
While endorsing eyes had kept us on course.
Two minds were torn apart by expectations,
Guilt ensued from causing your frustration,
Not ready to let go of comforting arms,
That arbitrary line alarmed and harmed my calm.
Although my time as yours had filled my heart,
You will always remain, my doors wide open from the start,
Whenever you have clarity, whoever you see at dawn,
Don't let it be an eternity, now that you're gone.
I wanted to have a go at writing a more rhythmic poem.
