Lust's Twin Is Hate - Poem by O Anna Niemus

She could be Chinese, Saudi Arabian,
British or Eurasian...
the wife... told to make room
for a second wife.

A divided house cannot stand.

The seeds of hatred grow stronger
in such a home, a home in which
lust has extinguished love.

    What of a lust that stems from love? And a few more unanswered questions. Nonetheless, I wouldn't be splitting my affections between two women ever. (Report) Reply

    She may be asked Anna, but she does not have to agree! I agree totally that sharing your man is not ideal, infact it would be impossible for me, because there would be nothing left of him to share once I got my teeth into him....I don't agree with your title, Lust and Hate are not twins....a greedy lusting man can create hatred, but not from him! lol Lust is our right and I am will fight for it to the end. Lust in Love....wow! well that is another story....smiling at you, Tai (Report) Reply
