LAMENTATIONS OF CONJUGAL LOVE

Lamentation Of Conjugal Love

www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [Lamentation Of Conjugal Love]

We dare not tell them or shall we?
That our marriage is a mirage.
We now live with false hopes and promises!

We dare not tell them or shall we?
That our home is a painted sepulcher,
Where putrefying corpses are?

We dare not tell them or shall we?
That our home has become a capitalist market,
Controlled by economic gains and losses?

We dare not tell them or shall we?
That our marriage is a dilapidated edifice,
Significantly marked out for destruction.

We dare not tell them or shall we?
That our home has become a monastery,
Where silence and secrecy reign?

We dare not tell them or shall we?
That our marriage is now a liquor bar,
Serving sour and bitter wine.

We dare not tell them or shall we?
That our marriage is now a funeral,
Yes the honeymoon is over!
