Inconvenient Truth

Heís married. †
And, he doesnít want you to know.   †
†† †
The thrill-  
he gets from the chase. † †
The rush-  
he gets from the sexy flirtations. † †
† †  
Keeping you †
at just enough †
of a hopeful distance, †
(on your part) † †
to keep you coming back. † †
† †  
Heís jizzing †
at this very moment † †  
at the thought of himself † †  
holding you †
enthralled † †  
about †
him. † †
† †  
Let me guess...  
heís been  
understanding †
and empathetic † †  
to your needs. † †
 
Youíve been sad †
and heís shown you †
a kindness. † †
† †  
Youíve cracked some jokes-  
to show your witty side †
heís laughed, †
deep and hearty, †
making you feel †
like youíve made †
him †
feel †
good. † †
† †  
Now, youíve begun the sexual innuendos. † †
Slow and overt at first, increasing †
in covert meaning and intensity- †
trying to figure out why he wonít commit? † †
† †  
He finally comes clean † †  
about his circumstances. † †
His sad lonely marriage, † †
the long unrewarded hours at the job, †
his children who need too much of everything, †
the wife who doesnít pay attention to him. † †
† †  
You feel sad for him † †
You know you can make him happy! †
Satisfy him in bed, †
sate every base need †
in which he tells you †
the wife has no interest. † †
† †  
Youíll be the best friend †
his children could ever want †
in a step-mother †
thatís how †
great †
you †
are. † †  
† †  
Youíll make all those promises of endless sex. †
Morning, noon, and night in every crevice, †
on every surface of the house, †
the filthy public rest room, †
a cloak closet at your favorite restaurant. †
Anal whenever he desires it, †
oral anywhere he craves it, †
threesomes with whomever he chooses. †
All because youíre desperate. † †  
† †  
Youíll tell him all this †
so he knows how willing you are. †  
Willing to make his life so much better. †
 
Just you two. †
 
How snug. † †  
† †  
Then youíll begin to notice~  
the minute to minute texts turn hourly.  
Emails getting stretched to once, maybe twice a day. † †
† †  
Your phone calls go to voice mail. †
† †  
Youíll get a response...eventually. † †
† †  
Work has been chaotic. †
The kids have been sick, †
the wife found a letter... † † †
† †  
You might be understanding †
but youíll begin to wonder. †
Give it a week. † † †
† †  
Youíll start to fall in line. †  
Little by little †  
that veneer you have-
the one where you know †
youíll be so different from ďherĒ, †
and being so much better †
for him than ďsheĒ is, †
will begin to crack. † †
† †  
When he cancels at the last minute, †
your carefully planned romantic dinnerÖ
where you wear your best whoreís lingerie †
for the $150 meal you bought, †
and couldnít really afford, †
goes cold
 
youíll realize then  
what youíve become... † †
† †  
like me... † †
† †  
An inconvenient truth.
