How do you move on when it’s gone

When you’ve doggedly pieced it back one by one

How do you chose this straw to break?

Do you stay in the comfort of familiar?

Do you stay when you know you’ll never be the only?

When you’ve devoted so much of time and love and body…

You know you’ll never be enough

Your smile will forever be crooked with knowing

Your vocal pain doesn’t bring a halt to his actions

Your body used and then discarded,

more painful than a one night stand…

is marriage.
