A spirit so free

We met at the park under that tree.
You threw a look across at me
and by that look I was instantly
sold to you my poor refugee.

You had spent all night out at sea
in search of a life where you would not be
a constant, always an absentee.
You were cold and at heart an escapee
But I took to you anyway with a plea:

“Don’t you ever go anywhere without me –
ever again – not even Tennessee.
I will be lost and lonely without thee.
Oh please listen and heed to my decree.”

But what a mistake – could I not see?
That you were a spirit way too free
to be bound down by a promise of three.
I was soon to be a divorcee.

I am mesmerise by the way you maintain "eeee sound" at the end of each line of your poem. I feel sad about reading the last verse for the polygamus nature of man resurge again. Happy to know you to be a one man one woman person. Loyalty and fidelity are great words to maintain such free spirit you got.
Great rhyming, great story!
