Inside, love's like a raisin

Outside, cares days out, days in

Our life, like a Shakespearean masterpiece

At home, Arctic cold upstairs, downstairs

Public eyes, epitome of loving pairs

Hypocritical, our love's sewn close to the seam

Barely speaking, our lips never touching

Barely thinking, our minds caught clutching

At the shreds of the matrimony rain
