She Is Mine But His

She Is Mine But His

A Poem by Olumegbon

I knew she had a spouse,
But his love no longer had her aroused,
So I saw that as a sign,
I could easily decipher,
Because of my level of awareness,
My consciousness obviously more experienced,
Letting him go was like suicide,
Miserably in pain but hard to execute,
The touch of my lips
Was a blast into the past,
Less time for her to reminisce,
Is the feeling a kiss she miss,
A question her mind couldn't resist,
But the touch of my hands was new,
My words were unique rhythms in tune,
She was overwhelmed by the rush,
Her soul admitting she was in love,
So she whispered in my ears softly,
Saying her soul is mine,
But her body is his

I like that you choose to write about the unusual aspects of life, the gritty stuff told with dispassionate honesty & simple vivid observations. The one place I felt a little funky is this line: "becuz of my level of awareness" . . . this smacks of egotistical smugness, which spoils the intense honesty of your usually more balanced observations about the darker aspects of human nature. We are all moving thru our worlds with mixed emotions & blatant vulnerabilities. The narrator here sounds like he's on the verge of being a predator (kinda icky) rather than just a friend offering a soft place to land.

This is what classic bullshit women tell when they can not stand by their heart and deceive all parties involved. It leads to only one thing " Disaster".

Very softly saying the words of love so slowly no one noticed or squinted an eye.

You know, no one ever hears about the other man. They always hear from the one who was cheated on and the cheater. But never the one that was party to the cheating. I enjoyed this because it gives another side, another voice and another perspective to the story. Although I would never cheat and I would hope my sigoth never cheats on me, I enjoyed the different perspective in this poem, thank you for sharing the silenced man's story.

But her body is his"

A very nicely written poem about a forbidden love and almost an unknown future for them both as she loves him one way and yet she still yearns and loves another

Exactly, thanks alot for the review
I enjoyed reading your poem. A forbidden love. "Saying her soul is mine,
But her body is his ." To me this type of love has an uncertain future.. It's like
living this love in the moment. Reminds me of a song called, "secret lover."
Your poem is well expressed, written and very believable. Good job. Keep writing..
