It Should Have Been Enough
She has been loved, He did the little mundane acts Thinking that should be enough To prove his love. Yet, through the years, those acts Became a cat and mouse game, Pulled away when she complained She wanted more. She wanted romantic acts, Flowers, little surprises, Small gestures A touch, a caress, a card. She begged sometimes, But it mattered not. It should have been enough. Until one day, she withdrew. Feeling unloved and unwanted, Her dreams on hold in a life That she hadn't planned. It wasn't enough. No more talk, she gave in To the mundane, his way. Her heart sad and broken. It should have been enough. It wasn't.
