I'Ve Seen A Lot Of Rain - Poem by maggie signaigo
Scarred by memories of lies and deception
childhood images of marital indiscretion
confused...was it me or something I did?
I went to my closet...that's where I hid
father yelling and defending his action
mother crying...what's the attraction?
Is this how it works? ..pain and deceit
I thought true love was forever and sweet
Are all females cursed by the male gender?
to their cheating and abuse must we surrender?
is there no such thing as domestic bliss?
does a day ever end with a tender kiss?
Blatant infidelity...sordid affairs
broken dishes and 'falls' down the stairs
neighbors ignoring the fighting and noise
no family time or domestic joys
Mother clinging tightly to her daughter so pure
God how I wish I had been more to her
I have no excuse...I witnessed her pain
I weathered the storm but I’ve seen a lot of rain.
