I thought it was a bed of roses,
I knew it was a gallery of smiles,
I saw marriage a sweetest thing,
Full of love,trust and well being,
I never imagined otherwise.

All in me changed  completely,
When a couple parted ways,
The wife narrated the whole story,
She remembered the torture,pain
And how her husband maimed her daily.

She told me how he was full of infidelity,
She showed me scars all over her body,
She even recalled how she almost lost life,
Marriage to her was just a rite of pain passage,
Her husband was only a warthog in a sheep skin.

Am afraid,am sad,I have lost interest,
If marriage is all about this,let it be,
None will torture my feelings when single,
None will cheat on me and hurt my feelings,
Marriage is harsh,I fear it.

Hello Lamech Obare, I have read this poem again and this lady 's husband beat her up. He hurt her she showed her scars. That is not normal. No woman should be treated this way. Love does not hurt. Love is kindness. Have a nice evening my friend. Read the soup mail. Read the comment I wrote on this poem again.

Hello Lamech Obare, so nice to meet you. So you are afraid of marriage. You will never marry. What if you met the right the right person, then you would have strong feelings for her. You know it takes time to know someone before the marriage happens. have a nice day my friend.

Hello Darlene,nice to meet you.For me,marriage is another war that requires you to be well armoured. And also,once bitten,twice shy they say. If she comes at the right time and convinces me of great love,,who am I to say no?If none comes,well and good, I will have a philosophical story to tell...
