Loyalty And Fidelity - Poem by Abel Bolaños

A call I received
Said you were out drinking.
And making yourself open
To a book, closed before.

With a smile that's broad and,
Above all, inviting
To soften and kiss
O'er a love that we bore.

Make no mistake,
I don't need to have you.
You're a luxury I've gone
My whole life without.

And if you should go
And fall back in his arms,
I'll hapl'y continue
This life-time long drought.

'Woman laid waste
And Woman destroyed him, '
Is what they will say
When I'm beaten by the best.

Broken and bleeding,
Alone in the dark now.
I bow out while weeping,
Making room for the West.
