For You, My Friend

I get the silent phone calls.
I know she's on the line.
Why don't you be a man for once
and choose her home or mine?

You say I must be crazy
because I do accuse...
You must have forgotten
how much I have to lose.

I've given you the better part
of my unhappy life.
Why can't you just be satisfied
with me being your wife?

Have I made you be unfaithful?
Do I not fulfill your needs?
Or is it just your selfishness
that makes you do such dirty deeds?

I'll get the strength to leave you,
and believe me...when I do,
You'll Pay for all the pain you've caused
when she does the same to you!

Mary, a chilling write on the subject of infidelity, the ending was frigid. Awesome poem! Brian
Ouch! Mary sounds like she was hurting - well done
well written tempo, and quite easy to follow. I enjoy the style.
This was written for a friend that was having marital trouble
