Poems • Love


I Do

Why does saying ‘I do’
Sometimes mean the end of ‘you’

Why does a ring feel tight as a band?
When it should be a symbol of love on your hand

Why does your marriage change?
Losing the newness, turning strange

Why for some does romance get better?
Does someone tell them what to do by word or letter?

Why don’t we all learn what marriage really means
Instead of it falling apart at the seams

A wedding ring on your hand doesn’t have to be
The end of the person who used to be me
