A wasted investment,
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Should not take days, months or decades...
To detect an ineffectiveness.
Yet there are those who maintain their high hopes,
Even when the aspects of those wishes kept to oneself...
Show not a reason why one should keep such expectations.
Especially when addressed,
During a short lived honeymoon.
'Oh snap out of it!
The ceremony is over.
I said 'yes' to the marriage.
Did you hear me utter a single promise,
I'd remain devoted with commitment?
I am not into you.
I just wanted to win a bet.'
