Strangled and Mangled By the Estranged

To know a man

to know a man
is to know what he expects
without him telling you

know what he hates
know what he loves
know what he wants

without a word said
his desires are understood
and prepared for him on a platter

but, once love, respect, and honor
has left the marriage, it becomes
all for nothing

there's nothing i can say that matters
nothing i can do that'll change a thing
just the cold hard facts he no longer desires me
