Ministers' daughters

Ministers' daughters

Feel guilty 
About making love
And having sex
Even with her 
husband

She wrote about young love
And early marriage
And 
And she
called having sex 
'deeds' in a poem 
she wrote
About ten years ago
Is that what's going on?
She wanted to make
Another baby 
And it kept her going
she just wanted
another child

what is
Going on? 

She's been so 
confused

And they used to
Love each other 

He used to be so 
good to her

He used to 
smell so sweet 
And be so gentle
And smile

often
He even made
Her laugh 
And he has changed
A lot
And she doesn't know 
Who she's married to
And somehow she kept
Looking at his face

She might have an idea

 it's all been so different 
She feels lost

And
The whole thing 
makes her feel unhappy
Her feelings are so hurt
She feels betrayed and
She's been so sad

and she cries
So much

She worries about her child 
and her mom and dad
She lives for harmony
It's all she's ever wanted

And
Ever since

Things have felt terrible 
So different 
And she feels so sick
Maybe they will
Just be honest
And tell her what is 
going on
And should just talk to her
Face to face

As they should have 
then
Or perhaps we'll all
