Disillusioned

What once was cherished, now so dispised.
Once proud and honored to be his wife.
I thought giving up on my own aspirations would be rewarded in the end.
To sit and basque in all we shared together, good or bad.
Our lives became so difficult,
even the easiest things.
No longer desiring to try and struggling for kind words;
for anything with meaning, becoming empty gestures.
Holidays? Burdens!
No gifts, no time, no love.
What was it that you didn’t get?
Why did you give up so soon?
Sitting in disgust, listening.
You would teach of love, marriage and a steadfast walk;
to not give up or into the world.
Encouraging young hearts to seek spiritual things.
How they looked up to you, to us.
You let go so easily.
How those eyes became disillusioned,
as did my heart.
