Letter to my Lover's Sidechick



You win
Not when I'm out and you're in
You win
If I'm not successful without him

Empty bed all night
He's snuck out to meet you
Why should I fight?
Now I've got space for two

Home from work
Your cheap cologne in the air
Frightened cause I don't give a fuck
But your smell is my burden to bear

Walking on eggshells
To pick up your calls
His eyes filled with fear
Especially when we are at the mall

He's leaving me
Your greatest achievement
But you'll always only be
His second placement

He said he loves you
He told me that too
How many others
Do you think he's said that to?

He's all yours
If he's stupid enough to go
But please be cautious
He'll do this to you also

You win
But this wasn't even a competition
You can have everything
Including his lying and cheating obsession.

    Thanks for sharin' an' carin' KAYCHEE. Beautifully written poem but O so so sad. Men are idiots and this should not happen to someone as lovely as you are. You are strong in your poem but your weakness is LOVE. I'm prayin' that you will find happiness (in love) again and very soon ! Yours BRIAN
