Bewitched Lover

**So it turns out I lied. Here is today’s poem.
Midnight love
fast
hard
intense
hot sweaty bodies
coming together in the night.
Heady
overwhelming
senses unable to keep up
sensory exploration
afraid one might blow up.
He wooed you
swept you off your feet
first time you thought
felt
that you mattered.
You felt beautiful
sexy
confidence grew
once more you could look in the mirror.
Brutal fall
wind swept beach
waves pounding
eroding
sandy bases
huh
suddenly
your eyes
they are wide open.
Truth be told
look back with the cold reality
a bullet was missed
thank god
he fucked up
you discovered
guess you can thank her for that.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.

  1. Loved this, My Dear! You are so right I lived through one of those times that ultimately ended up a blessing and the best thing that could have happened! I ended up finding the love of my life and my soulmate. Sometimes a loss and letting go sets you on the path that is best for you!!
