Indiscriminate Love

She married young, for 1970,
and didn’t promise anything for life.
The groom and she were close to 23
when they became the husband and the wife.
She figured that she loved him well enough,
but also felt compelled by how he yearned
to be with her forever, like the stuff
of true romance – with endless love he burned.

Eternity endured for one decade.
She couldn’t stand his suffocating love.
The marriage ended, but he never stayed
a single man – he sought by push and shove
a woman who’d consent to marry him.
His indiscrimination read like whim.
