I must’ve taken some magic potion
‘Cause I finally met him.
The earth stood still
Everything within it moved in slow motion
My once stone heart turned into flesh
I knew I was bone of his bone
His face lit up like the sun at high noon
His brown eyes shone like the moon in the night
His coo brought warm and fuzz inside
I knew I had found my home
I made him a god to our sons
I talked him a saint to my friends
I didn’t care for his blemish
In time I could heal his selfish
The answer to the cast on my wrist was a fall down the stairs
It eased their stares
I earned the shove
I should have ironed out the last crease
I mean, nobody likes a creased cuff, right?
I toiled in the kitchen
It was always the way to his heart
Unfortunately, I left the stove on too long
It charred the chicken
I earned the black eye
I should have watched the food cook
I mean, nobody likes a charred meal, right?
I sat in the dark, waiting
Whispered a quiet prayer at the ungodly hour
He had gone out to play
His toys had tight skirts, perky breasts, beckoning eyes
I asked he put them away, instead
I earned the busted lip
I should have paid heed and understood his need
I mean, even lovers need away games, right?
He sat across at dinner
Like he used to at the diner
I didn’t feel the winner
I had turned into a whiner
I can change him!
Delete history then reignite the chemistry
Something was amiss
The light on his face had dimmed
The brown of his eyes bore grey slits
The once coos left a piercing cold inside
He wasn’t my beau
I was dinning with a beast.
