By David, United KingdomWrite these qualities in a list:
Lover, husband, and best friend.
Let's be honest. Why pretend?
You know he never could exist.
The golden dream is bound to fade
(Contrary to what you feel.)
Abandon your romantic zeal
And don't set out on this crusade.
Can solitude be such a curse?
Of the different kinds of silence,
Lonely's bad, but then, on balance,
Awkward is a great deal worse.
