How Do I Love Again - Poem by Rosemary Clarke

My trust for men was gone, until the day you came alone,
You made me feel so open and free, that I told you all the secrets that were inside of me,
So many years passed our love grew stronger with everyday, until some news came my way,
Oh, I saw your man with another woman, she said
Oh, not my man I said, as so many thoughts came running through my head,
Could it be, after all these years,4 kids, and so much time, all I could do was go home and cry,
I thought to myself could he really do me this way, I picked up my bible all I could do is pray,
The lord told me you’ll be alright, but those words passed me by, as all I could do was sigh,
Then the phone rang, and Oh by surprise, It’s a woman named Bianca on the other end of the line,
She said Fud is my man you see, and I’m expecting his baby to be,
His baby to be, I said as I cried, Lord only knows I could have died inside,
The man that I love was cheating on me, and she was expecting his baby to be,
Five years in jail I waited on him, I went to visit, wrote letters, and sent money, just so he could come home and get another honey,
I thought he loved me the tattoo of my name on his arm was a stunt, gone with the wind like he smoke them blunts,
He says I don’t have a baby on the way I love you my dear, but how can I go on with him when there’s no trust here,
I took him back but every time he leaves, I think of her and that baby to be,
I have been with him for 11 years, and all I have inside my heart is tears…

I’m so hurt….
