Here We Are

Here we are on the sofa, snuggling.

My hand is resting on your chest.

I’m listening to your heart beating.

You don’t see the sadness on my face.

You don’t know what’s on my mind.

Your ring is on my finger.

We’re engaged. Our wedding is in a fortnight.

What am I going to do?

How do I tell you that while you were away

I have been having illicit desires and wild liaisons

with the man who’s going to be your best man?

How do I tell you that I came very close to leaving you for him?

What would you say if you knew that I would rather be with him now?

Here we are on the sofa, snuggling.

You don’t see the sadness on my face.

I hope you never do.
