Never In A Moment
Never in a moment did I doubt you.
The future shone a path I’d never seen.
How did I live my life before without you?
The answer to my hopes and all my dreams.
The flowers and the messages were thrilling,
awakening the dawn within my heart;
embracing all your promises and willing
to vow a love to last ‘till death us part.
“YOU STUPID COW – YOU’VE GONE AND OVER-COOKED IT.
YOU KNOW I LIKE MY STEAK A LITTLE RARE.”
“I’m sorry, dear. The kids were being naughty.
I’ll cook another one with better care.”
“DON’T BOTHER. I’m just here to earn the money,
Keeping you in luxury all day.
I’m going for a drink – you drive me crazy.
I might be back – or maybe stay away.”
Where did it go, the happiness you promised?
I let you down no matter what I do.
I’ll try a little harder, honey – honest,
if you’ll love me like you did when this was new.
“Aw, baby – I’m aware that it was 3 ish.
The boys were playing poker half the night.
Come here and say you love me and forgive me.
A man deserves a break – you know I’m right.”
I smelled a wisp of unfamiliar perfume.
My heart became a loaded lump of lead.
Your eyes were blank and deep with hidden secrets.
I turned my back and took my tears to bed.
Never in a moment could I trust you.
My life disolved within the poisoned air.
If, once again, you promised love forever
Never in a moment would I dare.
