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.
