Your Dark Stranger

Your stranger appeared a few years ago
and swept you off your feet
I of course, could not compete
against his afflictions, predictions 
heavy touch

He engulfed you in a way I never could
or should
or want

Speaking to you directly in tongues
that only the two of you understand

I’m guessing it wooed you in Vulgar Latin
Lucifer’s first romance language  
intriguing, deceiving
then spawning then dawning on us 
that he does not give second chances

He got you to divorce me

I becoming a third wheel to a
bi-pedal  love affair
a prodigious gadfly at the window
viewing your sorrow, your pain, your journey.

It’s a bonafide predicament
as I watch it dance dance dance your life away
hoping he will not take you in marriage 
knowing you will soon elope with him
