Contract

Marriage Day

Help me please!?
I don’t understand
When, where, how
Love
Came to be a contract
A financial institution
Based on salary and surplus
Material gains and loss
Where a beginning can end
From weight of such a span
On tilted scales
Swaying many to
Sorrow
So much
It reigns in my soul
To think
That someone could not understand
Let alone comprehend
I need not script my name
To look her in the eyes and say
“Forever with you I will remain
Through life’s eternal change
Growing, understanding
That we are two
Yet one!”
