Cloth purse,
an aging ignorance.
Leaving the lounge;
your waving,
bartender nodding
an odd remembrance.

The dress,
no longer kind,
as once when you were young
all over.

Feeling picked up,
I hate the men
who before have had you

not bothering first
to speak,
teach,
listen,
some improving.

I hate
watching from behind a future:
unloved,
(pity is pity).

You finally
shuffling alone,

still
sifting for sense

in garbage.

This hits home, in more ways then you know...

If I may add something...treat her with kindness and respect, but above all, with great responsiblity for her heart....even when she makes mistakes

Love to you and hugs for this
