My interpretation as a divorcee was-

sh.tty husband speaks
Uncalled for vile word

But to keep the peace
I pretend it was unheard

Why do I always have to compromise?
When I am sometimes right

And act out all those lies?
SO I can snuggle up in the night.

poem in reply very nice but i wouldn't become a marriage counsellor lol x

author comment

Apparently marriage counselling doesnt work because they are never there when you need them.
Perhaps we need a "marriage line"
akin to "child line"

fills me with horror when u have yr own problems don't want to take on other sat the mo very happy with my lot x
