Until love, do you part

were broken.

A shattered animosity
against booty calls and warm embraces.

You weren’t good enough
for that man who
cleansed his addictions
for the sake of your eyes,
made of chocolate fantasies.

Fishing for attention at Loneliness Lake,
searching for more piranhas
to gnaw on your D-cup breasts
and size 10 curves.

Until, out of the blue, you found another.

He was twice your size
with half of your vanity.

A bottle of Windex
to your brittle mirror.

Now “Love” was declared in the time it takes
to make popcorn.

But, he never took a whiff of your bag.

You started to hold hands and take
low resolution cell phone pics to fog the memories,
the proverbial paper bag over his face.

As you ride upon his wanton extension,
faking every gasp to get it over with.

He would try to hold you,
but your D-cups would interfere
as your rolling eyes
would leave his list of chores on the nightstand.

As you hit the town,
embracing arms of a stranger
under black light’s costume.

While “Love”

Now it’s anniversary day!

An exchanging of gifts where
written gratitude was sized smaller
than the $20 McDonalds gift cards
left in their blank envelopes.

As ignorant friends gather to celebrate,
more pictures are taken
with celebrated couple
placed 4 persons apart.

Her chest wrapped by that stranger’s arms.

As “Love” smiled in another direction.

For it is his time
to leave her list of chores,
on top of her suitcase.

    Perhaps I should call you the Metaphor King... the expressions of piranhas representing piggish men... the all too quick and easiness of making popcorn... something so quick couldn't be called true love, I would think. The expressions are all so original. Love your style, mate!

    That's VERY kind of you! Yes, I've met way too many lost souls declaring love so quickly. It's a bit of a pity, really. Many thanks to you, Tim! :)

    Oh my, can't find words to say what I'd like to but just know how unique you are as you express the esoteric ideas I need to read. So special Drake.

    It is quite sad actually. But, it ultimately becomes a win when we absorb in our hearts what we take from it and do all we can to better ourselves the next time around. Thank you Wilma!!! :)

    Another one, spot on you have a unique way of bringing your thoughts across which captivate the reader. Thank you for always dropping in on my side.. I unearth another gem from you, just so sad that many relationships end up this way.. Glad to see from the comments that it is not a personal write ;) tc

    Hey C.L.! Yes, I tend to believe many are gluttons for that sort of punishment. Maybe just for the sheer thrill of it all perhaps? I hope things improve further for you. Truly. Thank you!

    Carolyn, no it wasn't. Thankfully. But it did involve somebody personally. It just didn't happen to me. Just something I noticed. Thank you! :) Stephen, hey man. I miss the whole package, honestly. But, it was her claims of being "broken" that was such a massive turn-off. Probably did it on purpose to make it easier to not like her. She failed miserably. Thanks so much!

    I can tell you miss those cups, but hated her attention to detail! Unrequited love is a cankering mold that grows from day to day. I think that this type of poetry is cathartic and therapeutic! I have written a few poems on this subject, and I can tell you my exhaust pipe was emptied.
