    (Relationships are not my forte for poetry so bear with me while i grow)
    :)

    She cries tonight
    once more
    for the hole in her heart
    that he tore
    won’t stop aching
    and re-breaking
    from the lies it
    was taking
    and making her
    sick to the core

    Into her life he crept
    softly and at first
    with respect
    at least she
    thought
    until it dropped
    the name of the
    other woman
    that he bought
    from the bounty
    of his cheque

    He swore to her
    up and down
    inside out
    and all around
    that his behavior
    was a regret
    and never again
    would she have
    to suspect
    his body of lying
    down
    or his tongue
    of twisting the
    sound of
    love

    Now tonight she cries
    for once more she
    believed his lies
    and now alone
    she must rise
    to the task
    of raising his seed
    while he advertises
    his sexual needs
    on Adult sites
    that promise nights
    of sex, guns and roses
    and illness is small doses
    she prays

    She cries tonight
    and prays that
    her body & soul
    may be saved
    from the sins of
    her lover
    leaving
    room to recover
    her pride and
    self-esteem
    and of course
    her destiny
    time to depart from
    the abusing
    of her heart
    from this
    childish man
    with wicked plans
    and she cries
    and wonders
    if the child
    feels da thunder
    of hurt and pain
    that remains in
    place of her tears

    Not your forte? Sure didn't flow that way. I felt all the pain in this, the disbelief that the one loved could hurt you so much. In depth piece poetess.

    I've seen this 2 many times & wish I could dry the eyes of my sistren who are victims of the lies. No woman, no cry.

    Very nice piece.

    Hi phynxofkmat
    So true, the truth do hurt
    yet sometimes this is
    the only way of waking up
    to feel as well as see
    What's not correct in our lives
    Keep bringing it sis

    Peace~N~Love
