In a house on a hill
there was a married couple
with woman who’s will was broken
started out with one kiss
now she’s haunted by the ghost of how her life should’ve been
he said he wished they never met
he yearned for a life of adventure
he says he’s been held back
through the crack
In the wall of their house
She believes she can see the stars.
Her eyes puffy from tears
her heart putty to fears
which shape her into clay pot
of wasted memories and time
why didn’t she travel the world?
instead of having marrying him
though she doesn’t regret having two boys and a girl.
She’s a haunted spouse
who will one day haunt a house
with memories bitter sweet
and taste the the pain of defeat
of eyes that shouldn’t of met
she yearns for another man to hold her and care
love and life are both unfair
and don’t hold her gaze
she sits and smokes her life to ashes.
