The poem(s) are below...


filling the vacuum

With tears on her face she came to me
being a gentle man I am
I gave her my shoulder and she felt relieved
She cried not because she was bereaved
But emptiness caused by the abandonment

Her husband a rich man he is
But his riches caused more pain than joy
For such a beautiful daughter of the land
I gave her everything from time to love
And she reciprocated it big time

Should I feel guilty or joy
Guilty because she someone’s
Or joyful because she is no longer sad and I am happy too
I am just feeling the vacuum created 
And you know what they say it must be filled.
