On lust and love

Better to marry than burn with lust So to be merry, I married Mary which I thought was a must Be that as it may, turned out it was a bust Loving without love is just crushed stardust Eventually blown away by apathy’s weak gust Once two fiery hearts, now doused with lust’s rust Written April 26, 2017

Finding the relationship has corroded leaving only rust on the once shiny feelings. Nicely done.
