Trials and Tribulations

Three years have passed
since they first met
fell in love and got married
to live happily ever after.
But nobody could have predicted
the unfortunate future 
the lives will become,
both successful and beautiful
and in love it seemed,
but it was all,
a farce.

They were so well rehearsed
all the steps in place
roles learned to a tee
so there was no doubt that, 
it was just an act.

They intertwined together
like no others
their future hung on a thin thread
so thin, it was hard to see
others got involved to solve the problem
except the man, at the center of the fight.

With her trial and tribulations she went into the wild
to confront her fears in the jungle
but there were no answers or solutions
to her dilemma.
The branches of the trees
were too twisted within; it was hard to find
the beginning or the end,
let alone the path that led her there.

She found a trail that led to nowhere,
this was the end and the entrance to the sea.

The water ever so calming with its soft splashing on the shore
she sat by the water to think
and then her feet walked in, she was sure.
She swam steadily with her beautiful wedding gown,
she looked like a swan, gliding through the water
her arms moving like an angel's wings took her deeper
and away from the shore,
her eyes fixed on the blue sky with the sun shining
hitting her face and brightening the tears rolling
down the side of her eyes.
She continued to swim, the waves getting stronger
her arms softly moving
the waves hitting higher and her head just above the water.

She followed the sun somehow
and there was a smile on her face 
peace in her heart she will win and put an end to this nonsense.
The sky was no longer blue but grey and dark
she was still smiling
she lifted her head, the shore now far away
there were people now standing there waving their arms,
perhaps calling her to come back
someone was in the water, perhaps trying to reach her
but she kept on, angelically gliding through with 
total resolute.

A higher wave came that took her under, she struggled a little
but kept on going, her heavy dress taking its toll now
pulling her under ever so fast
she was scare, eyes wide open, and smoothly gliding 
she could hear her heavy breathing and felt her lips shivering
She lifted her head again only to see the horizon
she smiled with the satisfaction of her success.
She will win.

The sky so dark and ominous now, panic entered in her scene
but she continued, her body now totally under, arms still moving
softly with no strength, the end was near
she was tired, not just from fighting with the ocean but of life
and the farce it was   
all coming to an end washing her under
like an eddy pulling, and a voice calling.
Down she went, trying not to fight in the dark waters of the ocean.
All her fears, panic, sadness, and destruction gone below the sea
it was all over.
