Poetry Blogs (Napowrimo 2019 Day2)
I take thee to be my wedded significant other,
to have and to hold,
when we can fit it in around school runs,
shopping trips, dance classes
and football matches;
for better or for worse;
and what could be worse than
standing up here dressed in this ridiculous regalia
in front of all these people,
to tell them what we and they already know?
For richer, for poorer?

Always the same question. Is today the day
that I don’t make it through? That I give up and run away?
Is it today I fail to act, to deceive, to pretend
When I can't keep the smile held in place until the end?
I try to be a mirror. I’m just a parasite,
A blood-sucker feeding on their energy and light.
I just give back to others what I take from them by stealth
I've no resources in me left...
