Child Bride

I am in an arranged marriage
with myself.
Married too young to
say yes,
Married too long to
say no.
I’m a quarlesome old thing;
at odds with myself,
at odds with the world.
In spite of it all
I’d like to learn to love her,
My inner child bride
companion of all my years.
The one who has the courage to
say yes
when I want to hide away and
say no.
