#WriteRight. Aramide: I Do... I Did.

Saying I do
As we wed
We exchanged wedding bands 
Which symbolize continuous fidelity
For better for worse 
After She showed me Her love 
The worse is here
And better never was near
With Her infidelity rocking every year
She allowed different men into her arms
Still, I continued my yearnings
Waiting for my worse to improve 
She brought down the roof
With insults that came as greetings
From the love of my life
My wedded wife

With the same mouth She professed love
With the same mouth She cursed
Her vows
The words that made me joyous
Her cusses
The words that made me curious
In sickness and in health
Till death do us part 
Then death came with its cart
She was killing me slowly
Now departing
I'll kill me completely
Finishing what She started
With both hands
That exchanged wedding bands


Beautifully written Aramide. 

Emotional and verbal abuse sometimes cuts deeper than physical abuse. Scars left on the body always has a remedy, the pain dulls and then fades away, sometimes leaving no mark at all. Not so easy for a scarred mind...

  8. i love this one, Thumbs up twinnieπŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’Ÿ

  9. This is lovely! An often ignored angle on abuse: It could be him and the scars may be invisible. It doesn't make it any less deplorable or the pain less significant. Abuse is abuse and should stop.

  10. Wow! Really beautiful.

    Meanwhile, I do not understand when people say emotional and verbal abuses are worse than physical abuse. I have yet to see someone abused physically without also being verbally abused. Verbal or emotional abuse may occur exclusive of physical abuse but I doubt physical abuse occurs without some sort of verbal abuse.



  11. Really emotional.
    I wish all young people today will understand that marriage is not about pre-wedding photos and all but about the solemn vows taken before God and Men and all other things Marriage as an Institution holds in stock for those who dare......

    1. Please tell me your heart bled...πŸ˜”πŸ˜” I play too much. Lol

  12. Nicely done, its highlights the tragedy of risking it all for the wrong person.

  19. Really deep, quite deep! Hopefully, people can understand that they are free to leave as soon as infidelity creeps into the equation.

    Good job!

  20. I don't like poetry cos I don't understand what the writer is trying to say half the time cos of all the half sentences. That said, this was nice to read.

    Well done Aramide.

  21. Hey sisto! I like this...
    These men really go suicidal because they are afraid to tell the world. Afterall, no one might believe them. Let no one talk you(in general) down. Dont loose your self confidence no matter what! Speak up!

  22. Sisto! I love this.
    Men going through verbal and emotional abuse are ashamed to speak up...costing them their confidence. If only...

  23. It's sad that people don't know men go through abuse too.

  24. It's sad that people don't know men are also abused

  25. Great Piece. Shines light in a very dark place.

  26. Really good... very dark too.

  27. T, there's something they say about the unknown. Lol!
