    She didn't see any lipstick
    on your collar
    no tell-tale traces
    of red
    no lingering scent
    of some sweet perfume

    There was no phone number
    written on a scrap
    of pretty paper
    that you'd forgotten
    to hide away

    There were no phone calls
    with only eerie silence
    at the other end
    whenever she
    answered the phone

    No glimpses of you
    sitting huddled together
    in some cosy corner
    of some little cafe

    No sudden business trips
    out of town
    no burning the midnight oil
    no excuses

    So she shouldn't suspect you
    of anything at all
    should she

    Instead
    she should feel guilty
    for doubting you
    but she doesn't

    Cause a woman knows
    without being told

    She can feel the imprint
    of another womans hands
    all over you
    smell the smell of her
    on your skin
    feel the difference
    in you

    And when she needs
    to have confirmation
    of your betrayal
    she takes your hand
    and looks into your eyes
    and asks you "that" question

    This is when
    you condemn yourself
    because
    your eyes
    are the windows to your soul

    And your woman
    just looked through the window
    and she knows

    Sorry about my lateness
    but this echoes in my life
    Drags forth a response...

    .....Claming She Knows.....
    Coldly Rains Regret
    On Incautious Sharing
    As Uncaged Whisper
    Honed Razor Sharp
    By Past His Story
    Cuts Earnest Easily
    Chops Chilled Reason
    From LOVES' Tree
    Leaves We Bleeding
    While Proclaiming
    "SHE KNOWS"

    so true...

    there are some sistahz who just KNOW.
    ...others may be in denial
    but they know.

    HOWEVER,

    there are some sistahz who read too much into nothing
    and refuse to apologize for the drama she threw into a beautiful relationship.

    WHY IS THAT?

    oh...nice flow.

    Re: so true...

    :rolleyes: WHY? Because often the ***** called jealousy , followed closely by her cousins "Good Intentions and Insecurity" can wreak havoc on the mind and
    on the soul testing any relationship , be it romantic or otherwise.
    And like the serpent said to the mouse as he crossed the flooded river in his mouth, "It's my nature". It is our nature to be suspicious for we know of what we speak...Many of our men, for the flesh are just to weak. To my wonderful sista who replied
    what next? Pack his bags and put him out...I say "Not always!"
    For we as a society must learn forgiveness with our mates as
    we are instructed to do of any human . We must forgive in order to be forgiven. This piece speaks of the wounded unhealed woman, "She knows", because her spirit has been wounded by
    his actions. But the healed and whole woman , will seek wisdom and understanding before she seeks to judge. :heart: ONE LOVE!
