he and i

why am i the one
who feels the shame
when i really know
that he's to blame?

why is it that both
he and i have the same-
all over, a polished
untainted name?

why is it that
because of his acts
i've suffered for
years, and in fact-

been through therapists
galore-now's number nine
while he's moved on
with his life in this time?

whe does he have
three kids, a wife, a house,
while at the thought of marriage,
i run like a hunted mouse?
