Only Time

Only Time

A Poem by tanmay7551
"

Words of a Woman sharing her thoughts of broken marriage and how she felt when married!

"

The only time he looked Mr. calm -

When in sleep.

The only time we exchanged few words -

When I served him food.

The only time kids interacted with him -

When they needed money.

The only time he remembered special days -

When he served his clients.

The only time I really loved him -

The first year when married.

The only time he smiled and laughed -

When he was a fake and meant business.

The only time he celebrated and looked cheerful -

When he was drunk with friends.

The only time he showed respect and gratitude -

When I nursed him during illness.

The only time I felt peace of mind -

When I decided to leave him.

The only time he felt guilt for his deeds -

When he paid for settlement.

The only time my heart felt right -

When I have opened up myself to you.

Thank you so much Ashish .
Strong emotional imagery with honesty and regret fueling it. I like how each set of lines play out like answers to questions, it aids the structure. It's a difficult place to be when the love is gone and you're just strangers living together. Thank you for sharing.

You're welcome!
The poem has got much emotions.... much sadness..
but facts reside too....
i like the whole poem
..
one suggestion - "women" should be 'woman' as you are writing about one woman and her feelings....
apart frm this, it's very touching...
