the agonies of adoration

P1020798

~

when a man thinks he loves a woman

~

he will be disappointed, denigrated, manipulated

betrayed, ignored, exploited, demeaned, destroyed, invalidated

~

in vain he keeps on trying

in stygian depression he feels like crying

in obsidian darkness at midnight he feels like dying

~

  2. It should be, when a woman thinks she loves a man. It is interesting how I thought that men had the game all won, hands down. Of course, this is a fictional poem, right Jack? xoxo

    1. Oh fictional… So it isn’t brutal self-honesty… Not much…
