Exercise in Futility

Exercise in Futility

A Poem by Amelia Lawrence

It's getting a little personal...


They say love comes only once in a lifetime,

I thought I found it with you,

but love finds me lackluster,

I can write it better than I make it.

And you saw right through my hollow lies,

and forgot about the pleasure in my eyes.

Engagement somewhat broken,

now I am a woman that shares your bed,

your house, your life,

but I am still not good enough to be your wife!

I love you, adore you, wish for you to wake up,

maybe then you'll see the truth,

that my whole existence revolves around, and is wrapped up in you,

and you my darling half fiance, don't have a clue.
