Before & After

I met my dream man

But then I woke and realized

He’s better than dreams.

Married to someone

Who is never there for you

And pretends s/he is.

This is messed up, I know; but you know what, life is complicated and messy. These two poems were meant to be separate but somehow they also seemed like bookends to ‘some’ couples’ relationships. Either way, having the poems together or apart, they hold their own meaning and power.

If you think they relate to you, well, they might. And if it does not resonate with you, then perhaps you’re in a good relationship with communication that flows both directions. Yay!
