When Women Talk To Their Men: 5 Poems
Author: Colin Stewart


He seems so pale and his skin is cold.
His loving arms no longer hold
my body close to him in bed.
The man I married now is dead!


With this skill testing question comes a clue
when moments like these are so few
and you may have noticed that my eyes are blue
so just look at me when I'm talking to you!


They knock on the door but I'm not home right now
as I try to avoid this sacred cow
and my substance abuse has given me just cause
to dissolve the memory of your in-laws!


He once gazed upon me with those piercing eyes
but now resorts to his alibis
that love has become an extension of lust
and is as irrelevant as my sagging bust!


He still talks to me but looks at her.
A little too long I must concur
as now I admit humiliation and defeat.
The female in question has two extra feet!

Such is life

Great observations on male-female communication or lack here of - sad but oh so very true.
