Popping The Question - Poem by Wanda Swim Strunk
Did you marry me because I was a sure thing but now you’re not so sure?
Are you drowning in a bottle looking for a cure?
Are you clear about me
I am aware what you see
That I am unable to live my ever after… happily
Is that your wedding ring or a noose around your heart?
When did the loving stop and the fighting start?
I feel small but don’t call me a shrink
Keep baptizing your soul with a drink
I am what ails me
You have no choice but to fail me
I am born to live my ever after…unhappily
When you popped the question you started the trouble
Are you surprised that my sadness is bursting your bubble?
I am a misery to myself and to you
I can’t leave because I am destined to carry this through
Who said soul mates can’t be bad for each other?
Co dependant on one another
It’s our destiny
To live our lives together ever after…unhappily
