Leaving Him ( Letting go of a bad relationship)

She committed first degree murder when she killed

him in her heart and buried his corpse at the backyard

of her mind, creating the perfect crime scene.

Tampering with evidence, she destroyed all their photos

together and the gifts he had sent to her. Clearing all his

stuff from her house. Deleting every existence of their love

affair. Removing every bit of truth of what was. Burying

a love that used to reside in the mansion of her heart.

She set fire to every thought of him. Setting ablaze the

effigies of their love. Tarnishing every memory of her and

him. Vanquishing every documented detail of their

relationship. Making it seem like he never even existed.

She disconnected with all his friends, making sure that there

were no witnesses involved. She kept away from his family,

destroying proof of their love and relationship. She killed the

existence of their relationship by destroying all that they built

together and whatever reminded her of him.

The police found no evidence of a crime. She ensured that there

were no witnesses. The jury let her go free because there was no

evidence of a love affair between her and the deceased.

She denied everything and claimed not to know him.

Passing him by the street like he never existed.

See, he lost her when he betrayed her. Causing her pain and

destroying their relationship. He pushed a loyal woman to

the edge by constantly lying and cheating on her, creating

fake alibis and framing scapegoats just to defend his actions.

Silent cries through the night, feelings of pain and anger built

up inside. She became insecure and paranoid.

Playing house and sleeping with the enemy.

Staring at him through the corners of her eyes, she thought

of a million ways to kill him and bag his body but she couldn’t.

Lost in a heated argument between her mind and heart, she

crafted the perfect plan to get rid of him for good. She waited

for bedtime and shot him in his sleep. Dashing to the door with

all her stuff, she left nothing that could trace back to her.

She even took all the pets. Without trace, no evidence of their love.

She committed first degree murder when she removed him from

her mind and heart and left him.

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 poetry...art, 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.
