The Affair

Excitement blossomed at the start

For a love that loved to creep

through the night.

Calls through the day,346

text messages at night

A calming thought the quiet

with roses and lilies to accentuate

Motel rooms, lodges and the back seat

of his car favored their whirlwind romance

With promises of forever

and an end to a race he thought

would end;

Adamant to the cause that weighed heavily

on his shoulder,

a presence he had grown accustomed to…

A truth society has bestowed to him

Reality is an enemy to those that seek

to hide in fantasy

A bad vibe for all affairs…

Similar to a game of two queens,

an affair reduces like a pack of cards

Voice mail replaces calls,

romance fades

and she’s discarded like an empty

pack of used condoms,

in a bid to reclaim his own…

Fast as an affair starts, with the same

Muse, it ends…

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
