How could I have known?

How could I have known

You would turn out

To be such a difficult husband?

How could I have known

You would

Become a drunk?

How could I have known

You would become

Such an irresponsible husband?

How could I have known

You would

Not have time for me and the children?

How could I have known

You would

Be battering me every night?

You were so good when I first met you.

You looked like and angel;

And behaved like one.

How could I have known

I was dealing with

A lion in sheepskin?

  1. It’s a really sad poem. Many women fall for this trap – they believe that things can change after marriage and ignore the warning signs and then they are left alone in an unhappy relationship with no support. Really sad.

  2. A sad, destructive, sensitive topic. There are so many women, ( and men too, ) going through this behind closed doors…and nobody knows. It is kept secret, don’t let society know…sad, so sad.
