One Friday Evening

Becoming an on-air personality has always been my dream So I studied Mass Com in the University of Kareem I worked for a radio station, TREASURE fm Where I anchored a show daily from 6-8pm The show was called Evening Whispers It was a show that had many listeners I was more or less a heart doctor Or should I say a relationship Counsellor Two years in a row,I have won the City's award And have represented my station many times in abroad So you see, I had a blooming career For nothing seemed to be my barrier Cassandra and I were married newly She was all that there IS to life for me We had met in a colleague's birthday party Where the show was stolen by her beauty She carried this irresistible and unspeakable charm And her words to my soul was a soothing balm "She may not be whom you think she is" A big friend of mine had teased "She was the missing rib from my side Am a love doctor, there is no secret she can hide" I countered, trying to defend my love Unaware that the seeming straight road was actually a curve One Friday Evening as I was getting ready for my show Our technical unit had a fault,so I had to go I felt bad for my fans but excited for my wife We were going to make the greatest love of my life It was one of the coldest day of the season And I got a video that would usher us into erotism I slowly turned the knob as I got home to surprise her But I saw something that left me with a haunting scar There she was, utterly nude with the boy next door Doing the unthinkable on the floor My whole world crushed inside of me As I walked out into the balcony Cassandra was indeed not whom I thought she was I thought of where we had met and I cursed It was a case of all that glitters not being gold Telling me beauty has another story always untold I treated lots of heart but I could not treat mine Until many moons later when NANCY sent me a line
