We argue,

I’m not lonely,

I question our marriage when we argue,

It isn’t because I’m lonely,

I even question our love when we argue.


Three years together feel like hundred years,

There aren’t butterflies when I see him,

I’m not a dreamer that sees many happy years,

So why am I with him?

I am with him because there isn’t hatred when we argue.


The answer to my marriage and love is “true love isn’t always cloud 9,”

Instead, it’s about a love that remains even through the downs,

It’s a love that constantly¬†brings me to the present because I’m not in cloud 9,

The bills, the struggles, the differences, and other downs,

Marriage makes me focus more on the now instead of the future and cloud 9.
