To Stay or to go

To Stay or Go

A marriage turned stale
Tedious at best
Not that it has failed
It's dingy, dark and depressed

What do you do when your soul mate walks in ?
Stay with your husband, or go with him ?
Do you hurt someone to be happy ?
Or spend your life feeling crappy ?

If you only new you'd have another chance at life
You could make a decision wrong or right
But people want to stay in their comfort zone
Even if it means your unhappy, it's home

Your poem truly depicts the movie's essence. It was a pleasure reading it. Congratulations Tanis.

I adore this, the flow, the emphasize each line delivers is succinctly written and, maybe most of all, how your pen hit the nail square on the head. People prefer the hell they know to the hell they do not - which, to me, is what you are saying. Movie contest entry? I'm thinking yes and wish you luck with it and all else ... CayCay
