How was your day? - Free Verse Style


Greater good
Sentiments force a smile
Short-sighted when he comes closer, my vision impaired
He stares at me wanting instant affection
A glimpse at the dinner table states what is due
I reflect wondering if I have become a fool
Seeking clues with questions of his day
The mystery remains, privately contained
Two strangers with connecting hearts

We grow apart each day
Though I welcome his cause
The need for law
I touch myself till I am sore, just to feel adored
Bored as self entertainment is difficult when there is two
His castle, my prison
Too easy to make a legal decision

Constantly connected, his life is on edge
One day he will find his wife on a ledge
So the whole world can look me
People to notice me, visually he might finally see

My profile status switches from married to single
I do not mean harm, but seeking to mingle
Demanding attention from sources so fake
Though there smooth words I intake
A sex to be fair
Good sex becoming rare

Sometimes we see straight through each other
I merely act automatically as a mother
Surrounded by chores
You dare condemn it as leisure

We fight against our world's everyday
When united we should blossom as lovers
Different from any other couple
Stuck because of the greater good

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
