Not Married - Poem by Randy McClave

They asked me why I wasn't married,
I told them that the reasons were varied,
I do not like to argue and I do not like to fight,
But, I wanted to believe and trust with all of my might,
And if either of those beliefs of mine were again lost,
The straying of dreams and hopes would again be my cost,
Truly I do not like being lonely without a spouse,
But sometimes it is best to live alone in one’s house,
I know that somewhere, suffering some men have enjoyed,
Especially when a marriage they have destroyed,
But that kind of a person I could never be,
As that is my constitution and also my guarantee,
But, alas sadly I say I have been married once before,
So being single and a bachelor; I am therefore,
Being not married, the answer to that question it is mixed,
Upon one crude answer I am forever transfixed,
Unfaithfulness, no person should have ever endorsed,
I wouldn’t; so of course that is why I am divorced,
And that is why never again will I be married,
Those wants and desires are somewhere else deeply buried.
