Poem -

OBVIOUSLY

It wasn't obvious
It wasn't meant to be
Obvious would have spoilt the fun
Caused a fear
Made her run

It was delightful and charming
Roses all the way
Romantic dates and playfulness
A wedding day

It wasn't long before hope bailed out
Happiness fled
Punched out with a clout
In the marital bed
And ugliness arrived

It wasn't obvious
To a new bride
Who wasn't expecting Jeckle and Hide
Psycho Sam
With a fist like a ham

No
It wasn't obvious
Punch! Kick! Slam!
But it wasn't pretend
It killed her
In the end
Obviously.

Marionette, 
Wonderful, powerful, important write. I don't understand people sometimes, and why they aren't themselves around someone, and then show their real, ugly sides after, and why they would want to be with someone so they could hurt them. Crazy world, great write. 
Loved it! 

Matthew.

Damn!

this is a very good illustration of just how quickly 
things can go down the drain, though they begin
like paradise.

well done my friend!

Yes, relationships and people are hard work!! ....some people just bring out the worst in each other and some people are just plain psychos, unfortunately the old saying "love is blind" is perfectly true...thankyou Icarus 🌹🌹

Hi Marion.....People ca put on some pretty amazing masks to try to hide their ugly natures.  I am still trying to figure out people I have known all my life...what their true nature is...It is a terrible thing to be abused and especially by someone that is suppose to love you and should be trusted...It sends a very mixed message and leaves scars forever...or can lead to death as this severe case you have written shows....It hurt my heart to read this and feel the emotions...Great work.  xo Love n Hugs, ;)
