Marriage Trap

Marriage Trap

A Poem by Darkwaters

Just a little venom


I am bloated with anger at you. 


I feel the stretch of seams strained as I expand.


You are the foul air of gross neglect.


It's amazing to you how an apology didn't do the trick.


Make me all better.


There is nothing that sooths this ache.


Carried away as you were, unable to see my pain. 


Unwilling to see the rank disease of narcissism that was you.


Nothing mattered.  Nothing given.  Everything taken away. 


Just for you.


Don't worry I did not drowned in your shallow waters.


I ruined a good pair of shoes though wading through the gutter.


You were ugly.  A monster.  I dreamt of you in my nightmares.


You were still there in the morning.  Real.  No dream.


Now I feel this sense of dread.


This is it.


No real healing.  Nothing but scars. 




You got a second chance.


I got the burden.


You get to feel blessed.


I get to feel trapped.


This is the marriage trap.

*drowned should be drown
This paints a very real picture of a loveless marriage. Good job.
