Broken Dreams By Judy Weinberg

The Hollow Husband by Grace Burns

He shouted his devotion for her for all to hear
and declared her a luminous angel
whom he would worship without ceasing.
She sighed and considered herself
blessed to receive such passionate and undying love
from a seemingly intelligent and exciting soulmate
and vowed to love him without ceasing.
She remains by his side as the years pass
and collects the shards of his shattered promises.
His vows ring in her mind with a perpetual echo,
the sort of echo that only hollow things can create.
