Wish I Knew Then What I Know Now...

by Sharry Woods

We've been together for over five years and married for two

We have the house, daughter, the cars and even two little shih tzu's

Some may call it the American dream, from the outside that is how it seems

They don't know how we have no words to speak no tears to cry

No energy left to ask why?

All the years I have felt there is something wrong with me

Why else would my husband refuse to satisfy me sexually?

He doesn't touch me, he doesn't kiss me

And every night I go to bed lonely with him lying right next to me.

"I am not an emotional person," he'd say.  

He can't show love me but yet expects me to stay.  

Are you fucking crazy?

"If you ever cheat I promise to leave," he'd say

Well leave...Because I refuse to be denied this way.

I need love...I need my body taking care of...

You believe this is not your obligation

Good bye...
