Broken Marriage


Haunted by these memories
Haunted by our past
Thought leaving would put me at ease
Should have known it wouldn't last
I think about the wedding cake
And all the wedding flowers
These tears are falling down my face
Randomly crying for hours
I married a man who was a boy
Though through love I couldn't tell
As time went on that boy emerged
And I watched as our marriage fell
He never put forth an effort
And I faked a smile
Thought one day he would see through it
But it lasted quite a while
Finally had to give in
Give up and let go
Walk away while it caved in
Left that boy so he would grow
Now there's no more wedding cake
No more wedding flowers
Just me and my children
Watching them play for hours
I will get through this
Completely let go
Time shall heal these wounds
As I watch my babies grow
I will do the right thing
And be happy once again
Not with him
But with them

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
