Her faithless husband asked for forgiveness yet again.
Life never let him stop and sniff anything.
She kept questioning, though she knew the answers.

She loved him least when he came back
She loved him most when he walked away.
“I do not love you, Sarah,” he lied.
Though it was Easter, she wouldn’t rise again.
He could not understand her need for another.
