NOT FOR ME
I’ve never wanted anyone to lay down next to me; I’ve laughed and pitied all my friends who marry merrily.
I’ve never loved a man nor wanted love returned. I’ve lived my life alone and glad never to be scorned.
But lately, something’s changed. That empty home, so comforting has lately changed its feel- the silence is disquieting.
And when I lie in bed at night I find- I find I lie awake. The silken sheets, so smooth against my skin cannot smooth my inner ache.
It’s true, I can’t deny it- this girl here, whose heart she locked away, has lost it to a man piece by piece and day by day.
So I give up- the towel’s been thrown, and here I am to ask you: Will you be mine and mine alone husband and wife, in love and truth?
