If Things Could Be Different - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

In this unhappy existence,
I may have only met one woman
more beautiful than you.

Like yourself,
she had a complete disinterest
in myself.

I never considered this
a point of contention nor offense.

If anything,
I thought of her more favorably
for lucid thought.

I spent years
of wasted love energy
in an unappealing marriage.

I'm determined
to never make the same mistake.

Some people are content
to spend their time
in the lonely tight shackles of another.

I merely accept
my loneliness for what it is.
