Devoured by regret

This poem has been written from the perspective of a woman who faced hard times in her marital home after having been assured before her marriage that she would be in heaven on earth.

Hard times; hard times;
Very hard times;
Unbelievably hard times
I have in my marital home;
Things are not moving;
I am being devoured by regret;
How I got into this mess
I cannot say;
It seems I was blind;
Why did I not see it coming?
I dived into it headlong;
Lured by sweet words
And fake promises;
And now the price I pay is high;
Too high;
And too bad for me.
