The Agony Of A Single Mother - Poem by Akintoye TemiTayo

The silence at night reminds her of all she lost
Sometimes love comes with a terrible cost.

She has travelled a long hard road since she said “I do”
When she sold her first kiss to the man who turned her face into a riot scene
And vanished her soul for the pursuit of a love past due.

The same man that once swore “for better for worse” now live next town
He moved on so fast and now married to another lady

She suffers in silence everyday
An illness that would not go away.

Love can sometimes be magic
But magic can sometimes just be an illusion.

    The poem unfolds the betrayal of a man and the torture and pain suffered by the lady at the receiving end. A very poignant poem indeed. Thanks.
