AGEING LOVE

The rheumatic pain
in her ankles, knees and wrist
and ageing hipbone
make her a couch potato
shunning my touch and caress

personally i like the use of 'couch potato' it makes it so the poem expresses her suffering, and your frustration (a truly understandable feeling)... well done. :)

Oh I do understand her pain....I suffer the same way. She still loves you just as much as before. It's just so painful for her to show it some times.

reminds me of my mum, she suffers of arthritis and can't shift much from her chair.
