Read To Me - Poem by Robin Bennett

I never hold back when
it comes to
relationships.
You get the unedited
version, just the cold hard
facts, ma'am.

The good, the bad and
the truly ugly.
Most times, I'm a cover
to cover read.
A real page turner.

My truth is stranger
than your fiction
sometimes.
I'm a take it or
leave it
kind of girl. I fall
fast and I fall hard.

When it implodes in
my face, I get up
and brush off the
dusty ruins
you left
behind.
Then, I send you
the bill for the
dry cleaning.

You'll never see me cry
over a man. I save my
tears for my pillow, a glass
of fine champagne and
an Elton John
classic.
