Lessons not taught in history books

Lessons not told in history books

I asked myself
what worth am I
to a relationship
with you.
I questioned
my deficiencies.
As you kept wandering.
checking your phone.
having clandestine chats.
That’s when I knew
it was not me.
All you needed
was available
at home.
You desired
to look elsewhere
and I let you go.


This is in response to the poem a day challenge for April. You can find out more about this prompt HERE


She’s a Very Tricky Girl

Elastic like stretches with her claws into the Berber weave

She twists to her back and looks at me with her belly posed

I know better than to touch that furry white patch

Pleas to evict me from my chair are in vain

I lean to her and she purrs softly to chin scratches

Just as I twist one second, she jumps behind and takes my seat
