Reading Pleasure

The Other Woman

Like a nymph on heat

She stole kisses

That were not hers

 

Like a Herodias

She mocked him

Who was not hers

 

Like a glass shattering

Into splinters

She broke a heart

That was not hers

 

And caused the tears

Of the wee ones

To flow copiously

From bewildered eyes

 

And with ugly

Unfeeling hands

She caused the death

Of the exquisitely tendered

Hibiscus

Because they were not hers

 

Faithless, thy name is woman

You who is the other woman

In a faithless marriage

(This is my muse at work, and not a castigation against women who might otherwise find themselves as the Other Woman)
