Guaranteed Unhappiness?

I thought we’d be

Together forever

She offered an

Unhappiness that

Would never end

Yet never be

“My” fault

How tempting!

Who could ask for more

Even decades and

Worlds apart

Our sad future

Gloriously

Lay in wait

My ego’s insurance

The ace up its sleeve

This time

However

I caught the ruse

I welcomed my

Unhappiness

Loneliness

And shame

Into myself

Not as special to me

Or even ugly

But as part of my

Human condition

Finally breaking

By God! the

Hidden contract

Cut short

The ego’s

Presumptive

Continuation

And in doing so

Set both the

Anti-Princess

And myself

Rapturously

Free!
