He was that way inclined. A Poem

via Daily Prompt: Inkling


I had an inkling, he was seeing someone else

Not another woman but, from the other shelf

He was that way inclined

Confused and entwined

Continuously practicing stealth


I asked him outright, he denied and declared

Don’t you trust me, that just isn’t fair

I’m not that way inclined

You’re confused and entwined

Only but thinking of yourself


Lo and behold, exposed and uncovered

The someone he had on the shelf

Yes, that way inclined

The stealth did entwine

Time to recover myself


A woman can accept loosing her husband to another woman, having something similar to gauge a comparison. But, loosing her husband to another man can be a devastating feeling of loss, confidence and trust.
