You Need to Act Like You Love Me

the end
always
has a beginning
and I
am beginning
to imagine
the end
is in sight…
as every night
you turn away
and the bed
seems larger
every night…

yet
the end
may not be
a final destination
if only you
would understand
my frustration
and replace it
with elation
each time
you
look me in the eyes…

if you feel love
then show it
or else
you
will never know it—
meaning
love again…

love’s
not something
one can easily surmise
without evidence
to what has been
contrary—
the truth being
there has not been
nary
a sign of life
in our relationship
of late…

yet
endings
can be upended
if you would
only let me
once again
be by you
befriended—
just like in the beginning
not so very long ago…

soon
the end
will still be in sight
yet
going
in the opposite direction
and
upon closer inspection
the end
will disappear
in a much smaller bed
each night.

Rawland Storm


Marriage
is supposed to be
for bed,
or worse...
right?
