Just for him

She stared at the knife in her hand.
Tears had begun to form.
Wiping them away with her sleeve,
She squeezed shut her eyes.
They were red, much like her mood.
Contemplating if she should carry on?

But, her husband loved it.
This was his favourite!
She couldn't tolerate it herself though.
She'd do anything for him.
Even if it tortured her!

It was a necessity for him.
The sweet flavour on his lips.
He enjoyed it thoroughly.
Wanting more and more everyday.

She'd gotten many cuts,
All over her fingers now.
Couldn't he consider her feelings?

Raising the knife in her hand,
She brought it down on the board.

Why did he love onions with each meal?

    1. And do please consider removing the word verification for comments, it's really bothersome. Just a suggestion. :)

  2. Very lighthearted poem, this.
    But the plot opens up a wee bit before it should, that's what I thought.

    1. I'm not finding fault with the poem, only with the revelation of suspense.
