He Doesn’t Want My Poetry

My lover, my friend, and husband for life
said “turn off the computer, come to bed, wife”
because here I am, sitting, writing poetry
and there he is, simply asking, waiting for me.

“I’m trying to write something exotic and fine”
and there he is, that patient man of mine
asking me to quit being creative, and do
come to bed where “it’s just me and just you.”

Cannot he see that I’ve people to please,
or perhaps with a stroke of pen, do a little tease?
“Wife, I’m lonely, I’m looking for some loving from you”
“Oh, honey, just wait, another moment or two.”

And then, just then, scrolling through the archives I find
what was a disaster for one, now a treasure of mine,
for there are lonely hearts and singles out there galore…
who have told their stories here and are now quite forlorn.
I turn off the computer, the light, and close the bedroom door.

20 August, 1999

Thank you Suthern...sometimes I use my heart, instead of my mind.

DE, You're the one that's always rocking...I just keep on with my knocking!

There is a very, very good message here, Sunshine. I'm gonna tell my girlfriend about it (when I get off the computer) (if she's still awake).

You make us think...that's what poetry's about.

Sunshine...nicely done and wise choice. Time waits for no one and we should take full advantage of it. There will always be time to write later, but maybe never that moment with him again.
In my case, he neither wanted my poetry or me. He did everything he could to ruin both my words and my self...but here I am with both in tact and he is alone probably contemplating the disaster of his actions...that is if he ahs any consence at all

Clever ... this one hits home for me, too ...

Thank you for the reminder that it is the love that inspires the poetry, and not the other way around ...

very well put.. (i hope my husband doesn't read this) (grin)

But still, it's sometimes hard to turn one thing off and turn something else on with the flip of a switch. (oops.. that didn't sound right) hehe
