Living in Hell

 

Only two and a half  decades had passed
but the young woman was aging fast
deep in her eyes she looked old
and seemed very very cold
four little ones in her care
and her not knowing how to share
a husband who was never there
they were supose to be a pair
each one with their own needs
neither knowing how to sow the seeds
they didn't survive very well
for ten years they lived in this hell
then it was over with a divorce decree
they both had new eyes to see
each living in a different state
their hopes and dreams could come awake
but the woman who aged so fast
couldn't let go of the past
and the years of hard drink
dulled her ability to think
she didn't survive very well
she was still living in hell
