To Be Honest

To be honest, I never really loved you.  To be honest, I never really cared.  I needed a warm bed to sleep in.  Arms to embrace me.  Food to fill my belly.  But love is so much more than a bed and arms and food.  Love is trust.  To be honest, I never fully trusted you.  To be honest, I never trusted myself in choosing you.

Tough assignment for a one Min. period. But what a great intro as far as grabbing the readers interest.

Got to thinking, this would make good lyrics! Now you need someone to write the tune

I don't know...kind of depressing.

You've managed to express how many women feel after being married for a certain amount of years. Or is that just how I felt after my first marriage? :)

Thanks, Bella. I found this to be a bit bleak.
