MLG My Love Girl

I love her. 
She knows it’s true, 
And I'm pretty sure 
She loves me too. 

Yes, I know, 
She is much younger; 
But each of us 
Has our own hunger. 

She seems to 
Love my touch, 
As if she could 
Never feel too much. 

And, yes, my wife 
Knows of our affair; 
Caught her in my lap, 
But didn’t seem to care. 

This evening, my wife said, 
“You’re awfully sweet to her.” 
“I can’t help it, Honey…. 
I just love to hear that purr.”

    I love poems that have an unexpected twist at the end! I honestly didn't know what to make of this poem until the very, last, word. It seemed the voice and his wife were awfully casual about his so-called affair! Then, when the light bulb above my head came on, it made me giggle. I am a cat person, and they do make you feel loved, don't they! Great poem.
