What a Troubled Woman Once Told Me

What a Troubled Woman Once Told Me

A Poem by Jimmy Yetts

Just say you love me
it doesn't have to be true.
Just say you need me
I will see you soon do.
Accept the role; play it through;
do things with me you've always
wanted to. It may not be right
reckoning could come--but
the conscience of a desperate 
person grows increasingly numb.
Just say you love me; pretend
it's not a lie; say you need me
and I'll endeavor
not to cry.

So right, Willow.
Thanks!
*smile* the troubled women, told such truths, which are completely undeniable!😊
I loved the simplicity, and honesty adorned by the eloquence here, Jimmy!

This is one of the most short yet beautifully relatable piece I've came across at WC.
Thankyou for penning this down,& sharing it with us here😊.

You're welcome Jimmy.
Day-um, Jimmy, this reads true. But in my "observational" experience the many years I was a bartender...they DO cry...every time.

Don't know a thing about women; just reporting the facts.
Thanks, Carol!
