LETTER TO MY SPOUSE

We crossed paths

And our love story began 

I was your fragrance

You were my air;

A blend of excellence, 

The talk of compliments 


Like the love of fishes for water

We can't do without each other,

Our love was our habitat, to survive 

And thrive


Everyday was like honeymoon

And It was like there's no tommorow,

But If I say I'm still happy in this union

Then I'm telling a big fat lie;

For a truth concealed 

Hurts more than a truth unleashed


Painfully, 

The things I didn't see in our courtship,

Now plays before my very eyes...

And I watch, as circumstances opens 

The pages of unseen behaviors


To everyone, my marriage is fantastic! 

And they wish they're in my shoes,

But I hide the truth with a smile

And behind my eyes is a waterfall 


Sometimes I wonder, 

If you're the darling I married, or a clone

Cos it's difficult to believe 

And it's obvious I've lost 

The one I fell in love with 


The knot has been tied,

And the covenant has been made...

We got our admission and same day

We're given a certificate, 

When yet, we've written no exams


We're both in this school, called marriage

And sadly, you're learning, 

Yet unchanging and still failing


I'm human, and I'm hurt

But my greatest hurt 

Is your unwillingness to change,

Rid me of this pain 

And so I can be happy again


The best marriage I've ever known 

And we ever know 

Is one,

Where couples learn from each other 

And effect a change;

A marriage were couples emerge,

A better version of themselves...
