Treasure Island

Bri Edwards


Only Two People In The World? .............. [Relationships/marriage; tongue-in-cheek humor; personal? ; QUITE SHORT]


My wives have pointed out each flaw I have,
not bothering to ease my hurt with salve.
They've said I'm mean and that I'm a bore.
They've stricken my heartstrings to the core.

They've listened to evil gossip others said.
They've cursed me out and wished me dead.
So finally, each time, my surrender flag I've unfurled.
I'm glad they weren't the ONLY women in the world! !

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i was inspired to write this in a comment to Elena Plotkin's poem 'The Only Two People In The World'. you might like her poem more than mine, especially if you are the 'romantic' type. heh heh. bri :)
even though i HAVE been divorced three times and my present marriage is not all 'a bed of roses', i have not regretted my marriages. but my mother and my ex-wives might all have regretted them! women! ! ! !

    Men,
    Tenderness you do not know
    The milk of human kindness,
    In your cup, it does not flow. (Report) Reply

    Dear Sir,
    This is what a man does before a person whom he love. But love is always painful, even in the most romantic moments. Nice ly expressed.
    I heartily appreciate all the pains you took to understand my poem. But that was not actually needed. Poets are a bit crazy creatures and i am the worst one of all. When my inner thoughts flow out, I say whatever I feel.
    The last for lines really mean that the sweet and soothing touch of the lover can pecify the painful sensation in the heart for this sensation is like a burning cinder.
    Thanks a lot for visiting and reading my poem so deeply. (Report) Reply
