He was her knight in shining armor,
the rainbow following her storm,
but now the shine had dulled,
and the armor had lost it’s form.
For a time, before they met
he had wondered, was all this worth it?”
But, since the time of their first date,
their lives had been near perfect.
Somehow things had changed,
they just didn’t feel as close,
she seemed withdrawn & distant,
had she given up the ghost?
She said that she still loved him,
he felt certain she still cared,
things seemed to have taken a turn
yet he didn’t know quite where.
She was a very special lady
who welcomed his compliments.
They did most everything together,
but he occasionally became complacent
He could be self-absorbed,
his concentration sometimes wavered.
She desired more of his attention,
hadn’t lately been feeling favored.
Her knight now wears tarnished armor
they’re at the center of a storm,
their hot and steamy love
now seems merely Luke-warm.
