A Crack in the Door

A Crack in the Door

A Poem by Kenneth Sibbett
"

The age old dilemma of having an affair

"

Secretly standing

behind a crack in the door                  

like a thief in the night

I listen as cheating lover's love



Silently standing

behind a crack in the door

as my dearest friends

moan like old memories do


Stealthy standing

behind a crack in the door

as lover's quench their thirst

on my old brass bed


Shocked I stand

behind a crack in the door

as wife and lover

speak of my upcoming demise


Sensing the moment

behind a crack in the door

who strikes first

who lives who dies


Suddenly a shot

behind a crack in the door

for who acts first

the poem is a ghost


Smiling I lay dying

behind a crack in the door

praying  to the Gods

a gun laying by my side

Such a painful work.. your emotions grip the reader from the first line.. There is that sense of betrayal.. of loss.. of longing.. and then the overwhelming sense that life must be let go..
