They were “just friends”
For a very long time
No one ever understood her,
As he did
And no one touched his soul
As she did
And yet, they lived far apart.
Afraid to explore
Afraid to feel
Afraid to lose

We are better as friends
They say to each other,
As their minds wonder
How it might have been
To be in each other’s lives
Loved and respected
Understanding and accepting
That’s what a marriage
Should be all about.
Or is it just that,
That a marriage destroys?
