Rookie (London)

A Conjugal Curse

She craves but to savor a tender lovers` kiss,
and sense the rush of rapture it could bring;
Masked behind the cloak of marital bliss
Unfettered fervor latent lay below a wedding ring.

After the dowry came a deluge of deepening disturb
In-laws enter with contrived smiles ready to unfold
Her starving heart’s feelings she can never curb
Her frozen gaze reveals a million truths untold
