Poem: A Woman’s Prayer


a woman praying

You stared at her like you always did me
You made her smile like you always did me
You gave her a pet name and never gave me
You spoke with her more often
You drifted away from me like the wind
Although you never left me
You had me but failed to see
On you went making yourself happy
With now more than one
I wept all night because I had seen
I wept all night and did not fall asleep
My friends had said on I must go like it never happened
Wept I did, even as they spoke
But then I prayed,
Taking control of me
I prayed for my soul to love itself
I prayed with the vows I made to you at the altar
I prayed that you love me again
And control yourself
I prayed for your soul
And went about living
Living like you existed
Living like my vows had said
On the third day,
You came back home
And all you stared at was at me
All you wanted was me and no one
Today you pray with me
Today our love prays
Today, we took a vow again.
