Sweet Love (Poetry)

oldwoman

I have a feeling in my gut

stomach in funky knots

words I want to vomit but I won’t.

I would rather listen.

 

Hardly a woman I make

I’m hardly a man at all

but I know when I am being tested

I know when I am being duped

I can tell when your sentences are warped

into fractured phrases,

when your lie becomes God’s honest truth

 

Sweet love, are you cheating on me?
