Tales Of A Wife: She Wants To Stay - Poem by Vincent Onyeche

She wants to stay but
Ironical, nothing can be so glad
Than a man in the dark
Singing: 'no, call it off'
With a dry chin smiling at her.

She never planned
Going through hell
With children bestowed by the light
When the moon was insight.

She wants to stay
Underneath it,
Where they had asked
How does planes make an height
Evading gravity's hand?

She wish to leave no dirty dish
Difficult making it through
A day without a fight.
Yet she wants to stay
For the kids, for him
Even when it was once upon a time
There was a rose in a scanty farm
Farmers turn lawyers
Seriously arguing
What's the meaning of love
When it's a drug saving like a bank
Cutting deep and killing like a knife
Do I stay and close my eyes
Or run as fast as I can
Faraway from an axe
Tears in her eyes; while she ask,
For no marriage is perfect,
Even the sun dims its light.
