    She was in her tenth year
    of their destructive love affair
    most of her time was spent
    bowing to the will of her lover
    a fatal attraction of sorts
    without the fatality
    just the long lingering destruction
    of everything
    that made her a woman

    When she was with her lover
    nobody knew her
    she acted like a gutter whore
    dressed up like some painted clown
    spewing obscenities, lashing out
    using her feminine wiles to get what she wanted
    never thinking of the consequences

    She refused to see the downside
    of her relationship
    couldn't see what it had done
    to her morality and personality
    didn't know her lover
    was taking her for a ride
    on a one-way ticket
    to an unknown destination
    with no return flight, no way back

    Everyone who had loved her, cared for her
    had given up on her, lost hope
    of her ever finding her way home
    she was lost, making love to her master
    on a daily basis, going from ecstacy to agony
    dying inside, little by little, day by day
    losing her integrity, her ability
    to control her own life
    her fate, her destiny

    She actually thought it was kind of funny
    ironic - how things had turned out
    at 20, she gave herself and her love
    to the man of her dreams
    but the dream ended abruptly
    when he cut out her heart
    and threw it in the dirt
    so at 5 minutes past 20...she started
    her love affair..with Jose Cuervo

    thank you so much for your words...and I agree Jose and all his friends make for sad drunks...but sometimes there is a weakness, a flaw in our character that lets us walk down the wrong path for a while...hopefully most of us find our way back on to the right path...

    Sometimes it can get that bad.

    things.
