You Laughed

Laughter should be sweet.
A joyful moment to share.
Now I hear you laughter,
and it's a sign of what was to come.

I thought that we would finally be,
our passion had come,
thought we had our moment,
our touch had begun.

Gently yet so passionate,
it seemed the perfect time,
whisper to you let's go,
so much more to do.

You laughed when I proposed this,
didn't even care,
didn't see my heart break,
or how our love found it's first tear.

This was the beginning of the end,
showing nothing was there.
The first reminder of many,
you just didn't care.

I fell asleep next to you,
felt so rejected,
just wanted to feel your touch,
instead I had to feel my own.

It should have been more,
there should have been a way,
I just wanted to be held by you,
accepted once again.

Every night became a chore,
a reminder of what we were,
our marriage was a lie now,
a shell and nothing more.

I tried to find an answer,
you just ignored me,
it was just a simple request,
yet I was left wanting.

As days turned into months,
I no longer felt obliged,
nothing kept me faithful,
I had no need for you.

I strayed into my own world,
sleeping all alone,
finding my own solace,
a new world to call my own.

If you would have listened to me,
laughter would have been our joy,
instead we're both heartbroken,
and it started with a laugh.
