Watching his eyes as he speaks
I hear what he wants me to hear
Listening again to familiar lies
There’s that same recurrent fear.

He’s been with you, I can tell
his eyes shine with passion’s lights
you’ve lain with him, I smell you
as I have many other nights.

He rambles on as I fix his plate
knowing he dined on your desire
silently, I listen to the lies
hoping soon his voice will tire.

Silently screaming inside my head
eyes refusing to show my distress
He kisses me good night never knowing
he’s the cause of my timidness

I hear what he wants me to hear
something inside me is soiled
dangerous, hidden venomous
a murderous snake lies coiled.

Fear that I will strike out at him
keeps my silent sentiment
wondering, yet if I could quietly
find a weapon of punishment.

One thing will cause him to feel
a pain, vivid through and through
if I could find a way, dear sister,
to do away with you.

This is so sad

Want some advice from a fool?

A man who likes to ramble
Well he can’t be all that bad
Tell your man to call your sister
To say she’s making you sad
That you should talk about it
See if she’d be willing to meet
Then drive her down to the river
And pour cement around her feet

I wish I could oblige but I went once and was turned down flat by the Tattooed Lady, it left scars so deep that I find it hard to even talk about the C word

deVine one, I've read many of your poems. This one tops the list in my book. It's real and well-written.

Craig, that was the tattooed lady's loss. And it will be our loss if you stay away.

I am hoping this works, looks for the instruction manual and finds none......anyway, I could not let this poem go without a reply. Very well written, good rhyme and the words just flow...each stanza leads so teasingly into the next. Excellent job!!

You have struck a chord in many women with this poem. It is a topic many deal with at some time in their lives. You expressed it vividly. Great poem!

Poet deVine...You are so quickly becoming my hero...I really love your work! But might I add, I know this is not a community piece, but I could not resist...

A fool I was to love one not mine
But I tread where I should not go
Only to feel this life's not my own
Death is a wish I too know

So speak of cement, and wishes of end
But don't forget the simple fact
You have him in name, in heart and in home
I simply shared him in act



------------------
Let my words fall first upon deaf ears before a closed mind...

Thank you all so much! Your affirmation again makes my day! azblond, I love that I'm your hero! And you can post a poetic response to ANY of my poems...it's fun isn't it?

I tell you Ms. deVine, each poem I read of yours gets better and better! I've never seen such a place full of so much talent.

There's no place like "poems."

Lovely piece, but I tend to enjoy tragedy, so my opinion may be suspect.

This poem is so real and wonderfully written! I think it would be so great if you wrote an encore to this... if perhaps you did do away with her... I think it would be very interesting. Inspiring poetry! I can't wait for more!

Great piece of work. I kept waiting for the poor wife to lash out at the bugger and when you drop the last 2 lines and we discover perhaps, why she has kept her silence.... very well done. Perhaps, though, for the jaw-clenching sadist, a sequel, where she kicks his sorry @&& and the sister is eaten by bloodthirsty crawfish!

Ouch! That one hurt. Everything fell into place with a bombshell ending. I bow to you and your talent.

This is really good.  I am glad that I didn't miss it.
