Bursting Her Bubble2

 

So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it…. ~ Ephesians 5:28-29, NASB

 

Trapped in never-never land
Hoping for never-ending story:
Happily ever after—
‘Til memories in bubble
Burst onto the scene.

Mean reality jolts mind of escapee;
Crippling effect: unhealthy soul:
Disabled emotions—
Blinded by light of day’s
Hard-hitting truth: If
He didn’t fight for her
While he was with her,
He won’t fight for her
After he has left her.

Settled on being dreamland fugitive
Seeking to deter new eye-opener:
Never loved for who she is—
Only loved for what she is
His children’s mother,
His former lover;
His first-ever wife,
His long-ago life.

Caged by halfhearted love
Trying to veil rude awakening:
Tame love is indifferent—
Catastrophic bubble shattering
Fades ardent love musings.
