A fleeting beauty with tattoos of distress and anger-
markings that caress the lines on her skin.
For all the love and devotion, now a searing
pain with clumps of regret.
He loved at one point, yes he did.
He adored and trusted her, perhaps he did.
A loyalty and honesty he bestowed,
he became her truth.
A raven must have mocked the bulge
in his loins a few moons ago-
a strange cold that still gives
the shivers as she waits on this man every day
Seething for him…
enduring the pain and absence all the while.
Burying the look of distress- hoping that
he will graduate from stunts and fronts,
to a mature responsible man
A man she first fell in love with-
a man who will love and rub her
the right way- treat her better.
Give her that natural smile back-
a devotion, pride and loyalty she’ll give
for all the tears in the dark time might have erased,
his will be a moment of reckoning
and an epiphany for her…
She wipes her tears and holds onto hope
For hope is a grieving widow’s clutch
and an angry man’s endurance.
What happens when a man ignores a woman’s cries?
He gives another man hope and a chance to wipe her tears
While he fronts, another man steps up
While he stunts, another man takes his place
For each time he has made her cry, another man
turn them to sexual moans as a compensation
for the loss in Miss lake city.
All the times he has failed to make it home,
another man will be a regular…
She’ll lie at his feet and cater to him,
for the love he shows and the care he gives her.
Your favorite meals will be made with extra spice
and love for the new man and the throngs of passion
that once caressed your skin in shades of silk,
he’ll warm and turn up- night after night…
Every anniversary, he forgot,
another man remembers
For all the time he never listened to her
and acted like a white knight,
another man listened and was there for her,
as her friend and lover…
This is what happens when a man ignores a woman’s cries…
She’ll either wait, or he will be replaced by another man.
