AFFAIR

      AFFAIR

You belong to her I belong to him 
A stripping tragedy, 
With tears, I was pushed into another man's arm
Ending physically, never mentally

After 5 years
My new man gave his love to another
On a trustful night
After baring his first child
The lights in me had to give
Putting up with my new mistake
After all, I used him, hiding all the tears.
with this man, I live so unhappily
My new life, I compare to a drunk 
---without having to drink a beer.
This man of beauty by my side
A well-settled ride
I settled for a friend who broke my heart 
I allow this foolish friend,
 to do what he wants with my heart
Who cares love does not exist tonight
My friend, the enemy in my bed
You become my dream man, every time I close my eyes
Every night, 
When I lay next to you
You become him, my long time loves affair
In my heart, mind and soul, 
After 2 years, 
Every time, he caresses every side of me
With a stroke of his hand, it becomes your hand
without a lie, I say the truth the man I have 
becomes you when we make love in bed

To: my husband who is sitting across the room 
     I am telling him to play a song over and over.
     he does not realize the song belongs to another
     HA HA HA in your face. SKAT

Great emotional roller coaster flow this poem is, SKAT. Going up the down stairway gives a weird perspective on things. Powerful poetry is dripping from the soul of your pen. Happy New Year. Love and joy to you.

SKAT Such an intense and vivid write. The description and imagery in the words takes the reader inside your heart and soul, allowing them to see what is happening. Thanks for the wonderful comment on my Bad Person poem.

Wow! This poem reminds me of a friend. This was a very powerful write and it is a sad thing when we cannot be with the one we love! Sometimes we make mistakes in life and never realize it until years later. I made one with my ex, i felt 19 years was wasted because she cheated, but I have wonderful son and a new love so I am very happy now. Excellent poem!!!

Hi, Irma. you said you need to write a new poem, so go to that picture and just DO it, Irma. I know you can do it. STudy these pictures and they will inspire you . Have you done haiku here. I can't recall that you have. I can help you if you want. It would be cool to see you enter a contest. Luv, andrea

your husband reminded u, that should be a sign.you listen to your heart, you have a big heart. and it speaks louder than anything, your actions are only of the truth, and some cannot be like you,or even understand.you, as yourself can't lie.personally, to me it's better to go through a trial of truth, no matter how crazy it is, it's still the honest truth.i can understand you there.no one can fault you for that, because it was love, and not a just playing around.-Always

This is another one that many will be able to relate with on some level if they are honest with themselves Irma. Many are or were in relationships that made them miserable. Music is often how we can relive the happier moments...thanks so much for sharing and for taking the time to read mine. Hope you will have a gloriously blessed day~Mary~
