Just A Past Encounter

I loved once
Plain and simple
he never knew
I was just a friend

he had the face
of an angel
bedroom eyes
smiles bright as the sun

he loved well
held all the girls
spread his seeds
among the wild flowers

He never saw me
even as we talked
he never heard
even as I spoke

Everytime he held a woman
I broke inside
when he kissed her
I cried within

ten years passed by
he haunted my heart
doubts insecurities resided
I was never good enough

I saw him again
just yesterday
pouring beer into his mouth
his belly like a drum

he had a tired woman
snuggled bored in his arm
he smelled like warm meat
slowly festering under the sun

A whisper of pain
flew away from my chest
fragrance of freedom
wafted sweetly into my mind.
