Educated and smart,
Witty and not an upstart..
He led her on through a whirlwind romance,
She turned down a suitor giving him a chance..
They got married,
Her dreams washed and buried..
Every night he came back to his bottle,
her body was not what he touched,
She waited for him to love her,
He never even threw her a glance,
After all she had taken a chance…
Their nights were spent in the same bed,
Their hearts apart and feelings dead..
They knew their marriage was all about “what ifs and instead”,
Passion stripped their lives, they knew not red..
Slowly love changed to fear and she waited in dread!!
