Two years ago Marianne married Matthew,
thinking she had married handsome Prince Andrew;
he promised her Heaven with a devoted heart,
years passed but everything fell apart.

They still rent a three-room apartment overlooking a lake,
and the only luxury they can afford is a big screen TV;
Marianne didn't wish to live like this, it was a big mistake
marrying Matthew who cheated on her and got HIV.

Poor Marianne cries over that sweet dream
that wasn't realized....she won't touch or kiss him:
seeing those brown spots on his chest and forehead;
she planned to have kids, live happily and not feel sad.   

Matthew lays in an hospital bed fighting for his life and Marianne feels
compassion for him and caresses him tenderly;
had he been truly faithful, there wouldn't had been a tragedy such as this... 
and in this case: death was the cause of infidelity.

    What a great story even though it's sad there is a point infidelity isn't worth it. Thanks for the read.
