secret life

secret life
her hands finally learned
the new magic she needs
to show him she loves him
winter came howling in
she woke without him
sore from his hands
learning between her legs
persephone is not so young now
she doesn’t learn as fast
and the cold wind makes her ache

the winter sky is inching slowly
from gray to blue
in a few hours she will sit primly
beside him on a pew
trying hard not to touch
that tattooed flesh she loves to feel
under her fingers but such
is the outer life less real
than the secret one in pluto’s lair
where he warms his mouth with coffee
and kisses her breast and runs fingers through her hair

He claimed it was for the sake of her reputation that he wanted to keep it all secret. No, keeping secrets is a classic move of manipulators and controllers. He liked secrets to protect himself. In the end it became all too obvious that she was just a toy to him, that her only worth in his eyes was her ability to give to handed hand jobs. And even that never satisfied him, he always had something to criticize about her, about her performance in bed, about her children, about her feelings. There’s an important lesson here, no matter what reasons he gives if he wants to keep you or your relationship secret it says something about him.

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
