    I Let Him
    I let him touch me
    In places
    No man should ever know
    Not more than one
    Your husband’s secret
    A mother’s wisdom told

    His face
    A stranger to my eye
    His cologne
    The sweetest smell
    He signed
    His taste upon my lips
    His kiss I knew quite well

    I let him hold me
    In places
    No man should ever know
    Not more than one
    A father’s tone
    Should see your afterglow
    His hands
    As soft as infant skin
    Yet, manly his caress
    Our bodies fit
    Like synchronicity
    A perfect peace
    To lay upon his chest

    I let him feel me
    In places
    No man should ever know
    Told him
    His love is surely good
    Like soothing to my soul

    I let him tell me things
    No man should ever say
    In tones that hurt
    More than fists that hit
    No one should ever
    Have to hear
    Words spoken that way


    I let him
    put his hands on me
    Domestic violence
    No one should ever do
    A hard lesson learned
    From an ear who yearns
    To be told
    I LOVE YOU!”

    I let him
    Have his way with me
    Like no man ever could
    His stranger ways
    I knew all too well
    Yet not at all
    Like I should
    Some say he had me
    I never had him
    Some say I had him too much
    Some say true love
    Doesn’t hurt
    At least not like his
    Asking why
    I still had not enough

    I let him love me in ways
    No man
    Ever should ever know
    He left loving scars
    Too deep to heal
    Before he let me go
    I let him.

    Your poem brings such clarity to this subject explaining so much while painting the big picture for all to see and understand if they will.
    Thank you for sharing

    Sometimes...

    The desire to be touched awakens a spirit you didn't intend to disturb...

    Peace & God Bless

    Unfortunately, "Who you talking to like that?" should be the sign that whoever you thought you were, you have been changed into someone different. I'm not trying to get the reply....or the blackened eye. Love feels to good to hurt.

    Peace & God Bless
