I've Done it Now!

By Tony DeLorger © 2012


Two short steps to the epicentre,

one last breath before ignition,

three reasons why I find myself here,

and one doubtful consideration to say beneficial.


Eyes clinched tightly in anticipation,

white-knucked fists sweating,

seconds mark my remaining life,

a moment to go if I were betting.


A sickly silence ensues,

the air thicker than pea soup,

knees a trembling, heart a thumping,

regret a wet blanket, I stoop.


Her lips part, a pointed finger poised,

a gasp of breath, and I am moist,

the words fly out like spinning blades,

and I all flesh, in cinders age.


My soul on fire for cleansing sin,

and I so wrong from where I've been,

oh contrary thoughts have paid a price,

and now I stand in my spousal vice.


My dressing down all now complete,

I curtsey back and from room release,

to sit quietly and consider just what I've done,

and lick my wounds where there used to be sun.


She, who must be obeyed,

must be obeyed.
