Diary Of A Mid-Life Wife



Bites of frost fierce; iced words did pierce flushed flesh, soft soul chilled as you stole youth of my life, long lived your wife. We wed; blissed days blest till your craze. Your mid age mess lust for me less, as thrills I gave you now don’t crave. My angst for naught in knots of fraught tight twist my mind, your grit does grind strewn tears from eyes pain’s gems your prize plash at your feet my dirge does beat. Our love I mourn my rose your thorn, once in sweet bloom lies’ stench does doom. Sprung from spouse cage red town's your stage to soothe your doubts raise hell, nude bouts... go chase young things can’t stop your flings we’re done, I know ~ snowed neath cold woe.

I will take this as fiction, but fiction that hit home for me, until the cheating part. I've felt love rot, the HE trying not and written quite a few poems along these lines. You spilled the feel in the phase of, 'frankly, my dear ...', if you know what I mean, and a great job you did. Hugs ... CayCay
