Cruel Ending

He spoke her name not when he was done
He thought only of the battle won
He left her shattered, broken, used
Her mind more than a bit confused

He sought his pleasure devoid of her pain
Thinking only of his gain
Finished quickly and left her there
Feeling empty, sadness, bare

She dressed slowly and dried her eyes
Muffled all her empty cries
Slipped the ring off her finger
Her memory the only thing to linger

She cheated, and now he knew
But what was she supposed to do
She gave her body to him once more
Then watched as he walked out the door

Very well written. A sad story told in good form.

Been there - won't do that again. It really is Hell, isn't it? Great words, fine person.
