arlington, tx usa
she was married 3 yeara so dearly loved by he
and he was a lonely man just shy of fifty.
she loved her family so, she held her kids so dear,
but something was missing she did so often fear.
he knew she was unreachable but oh how he still tryed,
she felt so irresponsible but still she lived a lie.
he told her all the things she craved to hear about herself,
she gave him a bit of immortality and he felt better about himself.
so young was she when marriage came; so young when her babies born.
now life was going way too fast; too soon her youth she mourned.
he loved her with a vitality he never thought hed reach,
but new not that a fantasy was all she was craving to meet.
as things progressed she felt herself underneath a giant weight,
as things progressed he felt that their meeting was more than fate.
she realized soon enough that the life she leads she loves,
and needed not this stranger but the man she'd always loved.
tonight she tells her stranger that he never really was,
the thing she really needed was to be happy with who she was.
