Married to the invisible man

Married to the invisible man

If I wanted to find a husband

There would be a list of things

That would eliminate 90% of men

Knowing what I don’t want has shown me

All the things which make a difference

In making a loving life because

Would I be happy with someone

So consummed by pride

He turns away from his only child

Could I be happy with someone

So focused on image

He uses money to show he is better than others

Should I be happy with someone

So broken inside

He fails to show love after decades together

My life is a precious gift

Which could be taken from me at any moment

There holds space for someone to live my days with

But could never be filled by just anyone

  1. No, you won’t be happy with such a man and neither should any woman settle. But I am also aware that marriage and relationships aren’t simple, especially when children are involved. I am a brand-new mother (and before that, a recent bride) and get tons of advice; but the most sound one I intend to follow at all times is, “whatever you do, do it out of love”.

    A vivid poem. Full of character, full of emotion, and not short of power that comes from a strong character. God bless you, dear.
