Seeing Red & Spewing Blue (see note)
"He Won't Do That Again" by Cynthia Adams1

I found her lipstick in his briefcase.
Why the Hell would it be there?
Bad enough he told me with a straight face:
“Went and bought YOU sexy underwear.”

I’ve known he was a cheater for a while now.
But, man...those hands, those lips, those eyes...
In my dreams I’m strangling that cheap cow
But killing her won’t stop his trifling lies.

Tomorrow he’ll con another girl with lackage 
To take him to the heights he hungers for.
Maybe he’ll impress her with his package
But afterwards he’s just a crashing bore.

I think I’ll do a favor for sweet young things
Waiting for “my” man to call their own.
Before he hints at imminent gold rings
Then shows them he’s a Leo DiCap-clone...

I’ll conger up a rancid, deadly potion.
In moments he’ll be yelling, “You’re a bitch!”
I'll whisper: ”You’re a bit off with that notion...
Actually I’m a cheater-murdering witch." 


Love Bites writing prompt entry

Writing Prompt
Write a poem about love gone wrong or lost love. It can be sad, raw, or just plain angry (Just keep it clean). Express the emotions of the darker side of love. Any style or length. Be creative.

Author Notes
* Lackage is an archaic word that at one time was used to mean what is lacking.
According to the online Urban Dictionary, lackage has made a come-back. It now means a combination of lack and shortage.
