Why Did They Get Married, Part 1

Their marriage is failing,
she blames only herself.

Over the years, she’s gained some weight
and her husband hasn’t looked at her the same since.
He looks at her like she’s disgusting
and it makes her feel really sad inside.

She cries when he’s not looking;
crying in silence, suppressing her pain;
holding on to her anger and frustrations.
No matter how hard or how long she cries
he does not notice her tear-stained cheeks
or her tear-soaked pillows.

She’s been on a mission to lose weight
to bring him back to her
just the way she was
when they were in love,
back to the hopeless romantic period
when she was his queen.

But he does not see her efforts;
he does not see her fight.
