Dusk To Dusk: I Need To Hear It

...I need to hear it from you
how a life time spent by my side
has lost its meaning to you...

Michael B Poyntz's poem demands explanations at the end of a marriage.

How long have you shared
your secret lover with the world
the one you kept from my ears
did you decide to move on
last night while we made love
or was it this morning
when I still had reason
to believe in you

Perhaps it was Sunday
as I cleaned the rooms
while you walked the dog

How long have I been your excuse
to leave early

Where in the world did you
promise to travel to
as I made your favorite bread

I need to hear it from you
how a life time spent by my side
has lost its meaning to you
what covenants were made
as you broke all of your
covenants made to me
you will never know the
safety of my kiss again
