I Met Her Today

I cannot kiss you like before
I cannot let you through my door
I loved you so but no more
I met her today

I cannot let you touch my cheek
I can no longer let you speak
I no longer will be meek
I met her today

I met you and you lied to me
I believed the life you let me see
To think I thought you just a mystery
I met her today

You wined and dined me in romance
You made me sigh just from your glance
You convinced me to give you a chance
Well I met her today

You told me you were out of town
You said you soon would be around
Look at the deception I have found
I met her today

She called and said we should meet
She said she would admit defeat
Said she did not want to compete
I met her today

This beautiful woman who is your wife
She is the one who shares your life
I took it all in silent strife
I met her today

I told her to worry not about me
You I will no longer see
Home with her is where you should be
I met her today

So I cannot kiss you like before
I will not let you in my door
You made me feel like such a whore
I met her today

I hope she believes I did not know
She seemed to when I told her so
I cannot believe you are so low
I met her today

I hope she leaves you soon for good
She said she will, I know I would
And the reason is understood
I met her today.

such deception...very touchingly expressed

i never call a poem "nice" or such,
for that would not be saying much

I hate to admit it, but this one is a true life story. I think the reason I had to tell it is because HE showed up two years later, wanting to start over, all because she finally did leave him. The nerve! I think I have found the topic for a new piece...

You made perfect sense and I know that you have alot of women and men that are behind you on this piece.. It was wonderfully written.. When you see the guy again-- give him a good bop on the forhead for me..

Love,
Lady

You give me courage to come forth with my own stories. Very well done.

Sunshine...I know no greater compliment than that. I look forward to every tale you have to tell.

Well, everyone has already said everything there is to say, but I had to add my voice to the praise of this wonderful piece. It was beautiful.

The story's of our lives we put into poetry is the art of our craft.. and the labor of our love for it....

Stand proud.!!
