In the witness of God
A million ocean’s turquoise depths danced,
brilliant piercing coolness catches me,
drenching me in love, passionate and wild,
resistance futile, trapped, never to be free.
Romance blossomed as rich red roses grew,
each scarlet coloured petal, more unique,
each precious bud gave my heart something new,
and then a new dawn you began to seek.
Now I’m alone, love’s lacklustre storm dart
striking thunderbolts and lightening through
the jagged pieces of my broken heart,
ripped further by my memories of you.
Marriage is a sacred religious vow.
How could we even consider it now?
