Marriage

Her soul slowly
became dormant
beginning the day
she met you.

She brought out the fine porcelain
inviting you for coffee,
then dinner,
breakfast,
and in the end
snacks in front of the TV.

She worked hard,
offering you a good home,
became your wife
and gave birth to your children.

You took it happily,
all of it,
and along the way
you forgot her.
