Recycled love

Uttered through jaded lips

Promises of ever after

Driven by fear of

Growing old alone

With no one by his side

To wipe away the dribble of spittle

Of dying alone

Body lying undiscovered for years

Would she be the one?

Or is she simply after the money


Will she look beyond the

Empty words

And discover it was fear

Not love

That made him cling to her

So tightly

Scared of being left alone
