1. A Lover's Contract

"You may now kiss the bride"
                                                And in that moment
I saw our lives together,
A happy beginning,
A difficult middle
A peaceful end,
                            But this was a dreamer's kiss-
The three children I had imagined
Were not bore from our eternal bliss,
But from a cheaper affair of hotel rooms
                                                                      and endless business trips,
The peaceful ending was sooner than expected,
And terminated in a blaze of lawyers and
half-hearted signatures,

                                        Rings tossed aside into the gutter,
                                        Our dove's flew too far,
                                        For in the kiss was something borrowed-

This is the price to pay for love.
