You Don't Wear Your Wedding Ring?

it lingers in my thoughts; you won't wear your wedding ring anymore
not that you don't love him but the care outweighs what you adore
passion's lacking quantity and romantic quality's long beyond forlorn
patterns of satisfaction replaced by lust for separation leaves you torn

your made face bares two pairs of glasses hiding your pretty eyes
sun ones to shield the light, the others prescribed to distort the lies
married seventeen years; you seem tired, left in wonder at now why
you ever took up the misused institution, like if not your heart'd go to trial

sighing, perhaps you were misguided or too young to understand time's tax
you say goodbye, confiding your thoughts find it's a barbed wired binding lapse
