'' I Once Was Married '' - Poem by Bri Mar

They’re saying I’m mad,
I know I’m not,
No it’s not a fad,
It cannot be caught.

It belongs to me,
Yes it’s all mine,
What others can’t see,
Makes me feel divine.

If they’d leave me alone,
I’d be okay,
I don’t like their tone,
Or what they say.

Take these pills?
Soon all will be clear,
They’ll cure your ills,
Make you reappear.

Where have I gone?
That I need to come back,
Is all this a con,
I feel under attack?

What is it I’ve done?
To be treated this way,
My life was such fun,
Now I don’t have a say.

This jacket is tight,
I can’t move my arms,
This just isn’t right,
I succumbed to her charms.

Thirty years later,
After my divorce,
My ex man hater,
Has returned with a force.

Am I being fooled?
Is this but a dream?
The judges have ruled,
She wants some of my cream.

No it’s all true,
Despite all those years,
What you may accrue,
Could have you in tears.

My optimism has diminished,
What ‘s this burden I’ve carried,
My life is now finished,

‘’ I Once Was Married ‘’
