I met him; I fell in love with him
I knew he wasn’t mines
But he grew on me
Like a 19th century bottle of
Old money kind’a wine
She knew about us for years
And for years she took a back seat
Because she knew without me
His heart was strangely weak
He was a police officer
And in the line of duty, he was shot
Please tell me he is not dead!
Please tell me he is not!!
He laid in the hospital
In that dreadful coma for 20 long weeks
It was not her body he longed for
Between those hospital sheets
It was hard for her to deny
Because she knew if she did not find me
Her husband would surely die
This woman knew he was in love with me
And only wanted her husband to survive
So willing to do anything
To keep her husband alive
She grabbed his phone
And stood up on her feet
She sought me out knowing
His heart was strangely weak
I laid with him
And she approved of me
In that hospital bed
She silently requested help
And pushed me towards his bed
A few days later he awoke
I jumped up from between the sheets
And it killed her
As she looked on
I was the reason
His heart still beat
Its been three years now
And she is still his wife
I regret the day
I saved that bastard’s life!

WELL, NOT FULLY BUT I DID NURTURE SOMEONE BACK TO HEALTH, HE WAS A BROKEN MAN, HE WAS SEPERATED. I WAS THE REBOUND GIRL, WHEN I WRITE I ALWAYS PUT A SPIN ON IT.
I’ve been browsing over your poems here and I’ve found them inspiring!
I, too, am a writer, although I write novels and short stories. If you ever think you’d like to write some short stories, you should look into joining Critique Circle (critiquecircle.com). I’m not one of their administrators or anything; I’m only a participant.
Another place you might look into is Goodreads. They have a poetry group that publishes a poem each month.
You need to be published!

The ending took me by surprise. A bastard, indeed!
I don’t normally tell the story of what motivates my poetry, however, this poem was motivated by the the show Scandal, Olivia Poe, played by Kerry Washington was having an affair with the president, Fitz, played by Tony Goldwyn and his wife Miley played by Bellamy Young called Olivia Poe to the hospital after Fitz was shot because if he did not fight for his own life he would fight to be with Olivia and Miley knew that. Ohhh, that was a great show, filled with twist, turns and my weekly drama dose! Those married men never leave their wives, they want their cake and want to eat it too.
I had fun with this piece ❤
Thanks for visiting again 🙂
Thanks for sharing the inspiration for the poem. I heard about the Scandal TV series but never watched the show.
Ohhhh, it was really good, you can always catch up on Hulu or Firestick ❤
