Pony Tails and Sweatpants

by Maple Tree   May 2, 2017

This wife has her faults
she allows limitations
to overcome her thoughts
slipping into depression
Instead of a negligee....

She allows breezes to tangle
her hair and her words,
standing before you like
a tornado spewing toungue twisters.

She feeds you roast beef
while she eats bologna,
all the while singing
you love songs in the rain.

She wishes to die before you
because the thought of living
this life without you would be

I; the wife and woman
you married; has flaws
as I bite my lip to
stop from crying, I
want to end this poem
but my love and devotion for
you has no ending......

    I'm sure he considers himself a lucky husband, and he has flaws to i expect.
    We all have flaws, but we work around them.
    Nicely penned sentiments Lady Maple.

    'Slipping into depression instead of a negligee' such a wonderful way of depicting it. Really liked the change of tense in the last verse too x

    Wow so much emotion. I hope it is only poetry and has no foot on the realm of reality.
