The definition.

An observation.
He never smiles
his wife walks
two paces
behind
I ponder if this,
is the definition marriage.

Welcome to my blog! Here you will find different forms of creative writing, lots of swearing, erotic poetry, random thoughts, beautiful imagery, but most of all you will find a version of truth. My truth, this is the way that I see the world. However, all of my work is a form of creative writing, a combination of truth and fiction. I write to express my creativity, not my needs!

  1. Isn’t marriage such an odd thing? Its like the ocean at storm, the highest waves can be exhilarating but then there are these deep troughs where all hope seems lost.

    1. That’s actually an amazing analogy of marriage! This poems about an old couple that live in my road, ten years I’ve lived here and not once have I seen them walk together and not once have I seen him smile…yet they seem happy enough

      1. Thanks, I have my moments 😛 There is something about the older couples, its almost as if they are simply content with the way things are/have always been. Maybe that’s best? We often ruin our own happiness by not being able to be content.

      2. Interesting thought…life seems very long to spend simply with content, I think it has to be a balance, you have to want to spend your life being content with that other person…maybe lol
