Big Willie's - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

He thought they loved,
As raindrops fell
With fresh laid scents.

He thought they loved,
Ever since they met
And held eyes in intense suspense.

He thought they loved...
When climax came
To leave them full
And dispensed of come secretions!

And he watched their sighing...
Build into hot sounds that wailed!
Only then did he believe,
It was just not him who could please her.

And he left his peeking to sneak a seat,
At Big Willie's Bar!
To drink and curse himself,
For letting his one true love go!

    'When you think that you lost everything
    You find out you can always lose a little more' Bob Dylan
    Your poem reminds me of that song by Dylan
    Reality can be so cruel
    Wishing you a joyful evening
