He chooses not to see
the darkened demise
he's deaf to her plea
of love chastised.

The only feeling left inside
is to pick at his bones
hoping soon he'll die,
his heart hard as stones.

Empty promises he makes
only to turn around
and make the same mistakes
he has once again found.

Sorry comes easy to him,
ignorance guaranteed to follow;
better? lotto she's more likely to win
his anger is a villain she must swallow.

A man with only one notion inside
to escape the fear lurking behind the door
rushing to work so he can hide
never wanting his wife even more.

One day his wife will no longer be there
not a whimper or warning; this will be her glee
for she too will run out of care
because she also chooses not to see.

So sad, Julie. That head in the sand syndrome - I'm quite familiar with. It helps for awhile, but it's not a solution. Hang in there. Listen to your heart. I wish you the best.

Thanks Denise...not necessarily my current experience but one that many relationships suffer.
