The Other Woman

4

Heartbroken

I recognize your body

Am familiar with your face

I know the way you look and feel

And know the way you taste

***

I have watched you sleep beside me

Your bag perched beside the bed

I accepted what was offered

Though it was never said

 ***

Stolen moments, chances taken, secret rendezvous

Too few hours to fall in love

A secret world created for two

A gossamer cloud from above

 ***

Questions never answered

Even fewer questions asked

Too many painful goodbyes

A fake smile hiding my face like a mask

***

I never knew your other life

And you knew even less of mine

An unspoken rule between us

About walking that fine line

***

Now looking back after the end

I know we did not even exist

Like a brilliant dream about “Happily Ever After”

We completely vanished into the mist

 ***

 Over before it began
