Marriage (Anguish Language)

There was a time when I swore I’d never marry again. Or even open my heart to another. I was in a lot of pain and dealing with much anger. I was in a dark place. I wrote this at that time. (Usually don’t share my dark stuff but It was an outlet for me and part of the overall healing process). Luckily I have come out of that darkness. I can’t imagine staying in such a dark place for too long anymore. The point being- stay real, feel, share then heal.

Marriage (Anguish Language)

True Love?

When true love isn’t true, it’s a lie

When it changes and it dies

Was it really ever true at all?

Will you remember? Can you recall?

No one ever really knows for sure,

A false sense of loving from the impure.

A one sided perception based on trust.

A leap of faith in the arms of the unjust.

When trust and love both bite you

When honorable oaths spite you

Will you now believe its a lie?

With intentions of helping you die?

Now can you see it through?

A destructive end to leave believers blue.

A stifling stench of burden to have & to


A merciless twisted knot if real truth be told.

Will you take this person to love?

Will you then place all else above?

When it’s believed, it’s life’s breath

When you see the truth, it’s death.

True love’s truth is a lie within

A wonderful fantasy if you like to pretend.

A cherished torturing on a believer’s soul

A pursuit of dark into a bottomless 


When will true love ever win?
