Chronicles of the Newly Wed

She shivers in the chill
Of her growing dread
What will he think?
Her heart starts to sink
Bad things happen
It was a mistake, dear
Forgive me, she rehearses
Truth can be hard
But lies won’t do

He rings the bell
She answers, slowly
Shutting the door
In somber silence
You were away so long
I was lonely, but I
Shouldn’t have let this
I didn’t mean to…
Biting her soft lips
Trembling under his gaze
Words seem to vanish
Leaving no trace

‘What is it?!’ He urges her
To confess, fearing things
He didn’t want to know
Yet he had to hear
Not trusting himself
On what he could bear

Her cheeks are cold
Fingers restless
Stuttering, she whispers
How she has been
A good wife so far
A friend, she hopes
For all of her life

I tried to cook for you…
She points, to the remains
Of burned rice and gravy
‘That’s it?!’ He exclaims,
Casting off his chef’s shirt
Pulling her frail arms close
As he laughed away
Her childlike fears
With gentle, happy love
