A Good Man

I married him twice.

Both times
he  promised to
love, honor, and cherish 
for as long as we both shall live
and meant it-
both times..

The same man
two very different bodies
two very different places in time
but essentially-
the same man..

And I have no idea
why I did it either time.
I married him twice
the same man.
 Both times
knowing, no amount of
“He’s a good man”
would ever become love
or bring me any closer
to loving myself…
