Somehow I knew you couldn’t stay
Though we had ‘great moments’ accompanied with passion at its peak
But I knew you were not mine to keep
For I was cheating on Him-my Husband
Those nights when he went quiet, I sought you
And I would inhale you deeply like you were my hemp
Indeed you were my high and I was the chain smoker
And night after night, I reduced myself from His bride to a hooker
My spirit diced ad diced into a hollow shadow
For I could not serve two masters
Could not swear love to him with the lips that kissed you some five minutes ago
So let us make a toast to my farewell speech
Here is to better days with Hubs and less nights with you
Here’s to a lot of bended knees in prayers to my King
I would no longer be drawn by your touch or seduced by your winks…
Raise your glass Lucifer; this is goodbye
