The Other Woman's Exit Letter


I accepted the part
Because I liked the leading man so much
He excited me
But the truth is
I am not comfortable waiting in the wings
My life orientation is
Being the leading lady
I have too much energy
And I know the play too well
To be the chorus girl
In that role
I am unutilized
I feel suppressed
And I do oppress others
So now
I must take my exit
Through the backstage door
Sorry for the tension and confusion
I’m just not the ideal leading lady’s understudy
Thanks for the privileges
For the tender moments that we shared
But most of all
Thank you for
Another profound experience
That’s taking me closer to my quest for fulfillment
