A Burden in Disguise

My first attempt at a poem that isn't written in rhymed couplets, hope it's okay.



I see you on his arm,

You’re perfect and I’m jealous.

I need you, I want you,

He must come to some harm.

I caught him alone,

In a dark alley.

One shot did it,

He didn’t even moan.

A little wooing and you’re mine,

I can’t get enough of you.

My life is finally perfect,

You’re my angel, my favorite wine.

Two months later you’re my bane,

You nag and won’t shut up,

You can’t cook, can’t clean,

Spend tons to look like a queen.

I’m fed up,

But you won’t leave.

Time to take action,

I need a reprieve.

He was a great man I bet,

For putting up with you so long.

But out of envy I took his disguised burden.

Now a bullet will carry my regret.

Never again will I judge by looks,

For they are as deceiving as crooks.

So never again will I dig a grave,

For a woman named Estave.
