by Sara Kennedy

Agony of being persuaded
Vengence's resulting humiliation
Deserved from ill decisions

Cutting words from love gone
Glaring glances across a crowded table
Uneasy flashbacks
of what was and could have been

Watching this new pursuit,
new prey,
new woman

Realizing what is lost
and gone

His anger attempts my pain
bittersweet moments of truth
Heart beating truly at last and then dying.
