Best Poem of Leria Hawkins

A Mistress To Her Lover

I see you in my rear view, as you settle to make the call
Covering the delay, with a well-worn blanket of lies…

What is it? ...ten seconds out the door
You’ve a hand on the phone, and a foot on the floor
Just ten seconds more, I’ll be out of sight
You’ve revved the engine, for a hasty flight

You scrub the shine from your cheek
Check the mirror…a cool critique
Hand press those wrinkles across your chest
Better hurry now, and look your best

You skillfully disguise the walk of shame
She’s yet to learn your cheating games
Run…comb your hair, brush ...

Read the full of A Mistress To Her Lover

I Cling No More

I have arrived…
And I say with some relief
That I do not mourn for you
Or begrudge who you are
You see….I have simply…accepted

I suppose I have hardened my heart
And closed the door
I do not care that you have failed to know me
