Pensive burst: A POEM


Pensive burst: A POEM

Bended knees
Outstretched hands
Cheeks doused with hot tears
Mouths in silent weeping;

She died of a broken heart
A curse of his infidelity
Shattered dreams
A beauty's tale of shame...

Thandy this is so sad but wonderfully written. You have the insight to look into the feelings of others so well. Happy it is not autobiographical.

This is sad but the story is true, Alexander. Too many relationships are broken through unfaithfulness.

Yeah, it is an autobiography not, my dear Ruby. But it happens, still happening and I see it everyday in the lives of some folks. Life could be such a prick when dashing people sorrow especially for the cheated. For me, that's my greatest turnoff - cheating. I can't ever dream of cheating and will never try it. Through experience, I know what wrath it can bring to a happy home. Glad you could stop by to pour your brief on this. Blessings to you.

Thanks Frank. Your words are truly encouraging. Bless you, great man.

You are so right, teaches: many a relationship have squeezed its head through this narrow hole and paid the penalty. Infidelity is a marriage crasher and could destroy the happiest of homes. It is 'evil' (depending on how you understand evil) and a bad thing to do! I pray it comes not my way. Peace and blessings to you and your beloved.
