Crushed!

That defining moment came for them both

together for what seemed like ever

each leaving a happy marriage for this affair

which had turned from just a fling

into a long happy relationship love discussed

but tonight the moment crushed!

 

They tried to have sex yet the spark had gone

that flush of embarrassment

overcame them both as they sat back to back

an emptiness overwhelming

without another word the man dressed and left

all feelings somehow bereft!

 

The women for some reason overcome with guilt

remembering her only child

she deserted all communication had been broken

in the bedroom she reminisced

rubbing a small hand over the crumpled sheet

at the moment those pangs of defeat!

 

The man he had no such qualms he went back

to a wife who still loved him

arrogant in his attitude without a conscience

resuming where he left off

to him knew there was always his home base

self-preservation he did embrace!

Without!

More stories of real people are told

too often the young

end their lives by taking them away

shock and dismay

without explanation or portent shown

reasons often unknown!

 

To friends relations work colleagues

they appear stable

no hint of  the fateful impending act

outwardly coping

inside unable to express true feeling

leaving everybody reeling!

 

Is it life’s to complex and demanding

something within us

society has always created conflicts

that can overwhelm

most contain each sombre thought

support is sought.

 

Regrettably some cannot converse

themselves conceal

maintaining that perfect false facade

locked in their minds

not until they are found deceased

too late the soul released!

 

The Foureyed Poet.
