The glint of her wedding ring
A reminder of a once faithful love shared
Days of happiness and contentment
Carried away by the waves of time
His eyes caught on his wedding ring while at work
He became still for a moment and thought,
"Does she love me still? My heart, my life.
She doesn't take notice of me anymore."
How did it come here they both wondered
Why the laughters are replaced by angry shoutings
The feeling of being safe now gone
What's left are feelings of resentment and disappointment
They're both like a stranger to each other now
Their arms once a familiar warmth to one another, now a barren, cold place
The eyes that stares at each other like as of from strangers
Their voices cold, their answers clipped and distant
Like clams they closed up on each other
As days become months and years, they began to hate the other
The home once filled with dreams of a family
Now shattered, quiet and very empty
So how did it start? Where did it start?
Was if the first miscarriage?
Was it the first anniversary forgotten?
Or was it the first time they slept in different rooms because of a disagreement?
She is tired, he seems nonchalant
She cries at nights for a love that is lost
He drinks himself to sleep and forget
Both of them stubborn and unmoving
The both of them the cause of an empty home
