The Affair

A warm embrace And a lingering touch. Skin meets skin. The rustling of sheets, Fingers tangled in hair. His lips against mine, My lover and I. The slam of a door And my heart sinks. Red of passion turns to red of rage. Angry screams. Drunk words. A taste of copper on my tongue, White sheets stained crimson I look, My own glassy eyes stare back. You move on, you forget. I watch, I wait. I can never leave, Never touch, Never breathe. Silent screams echo, Cherished memories tinged with red. I watch, I wait. Know that the cross you clutch so often Will do you no good. I'm watching, I'm waiting.

Reshma-Kate-Meserah-Blanca FARR, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) HAPPY HOLIDAYS. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
