It happened again one night

You are a fool!

Shouted the man-

You are the worst thing that has ever happened to me she retorted.

In those words I heard pain, regret and tears

Back and forth…

Back and forth they went at each other-

Like claws on faces…

Definitely not deaf,

Here I am

In my bed

Thinking.....


Is this how it is to be married?

Or,

Is there any other way to be married?

Thanks for stopping by to read what I’ve soulfully written. If you liked it kindly comment and like it’d mean a lot to me....
