Devoured By the Beast

Behind every great man is a great woman

behind every great man is a great woman
i'm a minute woman who only wanted
to make her man superior
but, fell short of his respect and love
never good enough to be his great woman

the unimportant one and the noble one
is incompatible, nothing glorious 
became of this two becoming as one
severed, never bonding in marriage
as expected

i'm no longer in denial
believing, hoping, having faith
that this  marriage will some how
be a real marriage where love, respect,
and honor prevail

i give my all, but my all is never enough
its just a new beginning to a never ending end
