Is She Happy? – Written November 2013 (Aged 38)

Is She Happy?

is she happy?
is she there?
is it a husband of choice
or are there other thoughts to share?
she twiddles her hair
neatly formed into plats
she married when she was young
does she ever look back?
who knows,
her thoughts inside
do her and her husband
skate around the lines of her eyes
or holiday on the island that is lost inside
she looks lost
as if dreams have stolen her away
is it true,
the voice she hears
and does he ever have a view?
do they like to wash in each others tears
she smiles a lot
and she talks a lot
but those moments of sadness
do sometimes appear
who knows what is right and wrong
is she happy?
with those choices that she chose
the husband indoors
or is this one subject that is closed?
