Broken

Picture courtesy – pinterest In wretched silence she sitsPondering over her life of the past few monthsOblivious to the world around her.The separation has been hard on herFor barely were they togetherSince that surreal day at the churchWhen they were declared man and wifeAmidst a small crowd of loved onesTheir eyes full of love and … Continue reading Broken
