the love of their lives

they finally meet

love is too strong

to be that discreet

 

they're kissing in public

their hands bound by love

and when they're in bed

they fit like a glove

 

the months pass on by

and things start to change

publicly normal

but their sex life is strange

 

she is close at first,

but her distance grows

then she's close again

her confusion shows

 

loving to hating

anger to regret

you ask her what's wrong

she answers, "don't fret."

 

you move to console

she retracts with disgust

not sure what to do

but help her you must

 

compares you to him

and she's mad at you,

not at you, but at him

this confliction is true

 

can't separate feelings

emotions strike out

horrible words fly

feelings in doubt

 

realization sweeps in

and sorrow begins

she tries to explain

of another's sins

 

nothing you can do

but be there for her

don't take it personal

you better not stir

 

she needs you now

to be who you are

the one she spotted

that day from afar

 

be with her now

in this time of need

support her struggle

that is love, indeed

 

supposed to be easy

but life rarely is

this is just an ordeal

of hers, and his
