NOT ANY MORE

entry picture

She is no longer the love of his life   

She's not his soul mate

Not any more

They stay together because it's convenient

They keep up appearances

for the sake of their friends

their children and their grandchildren

 

They don't have really personal conversations

Not any more

They talk about stuff

ordinary stuff, like the weather

They're no longer intimate

They sleep in the same bed

but they don't sleep together

Not any more

Sad but very well written, and don't we all know this couple?! Glad for you Brian!

Well written but don't quite know what to make of this 'extremely'.....perhaps this explains the zonked out look in the pic?.....

I would just like to make it clear that this poem is not about me and my wife. It's about another couple entirely. My wife and I are still very much in love and have an extremely active sex life.
