Having been challenged by Susan to write a poem about the Faithless Husband, and in reaction to various comments on my poem The Other Woman, I have heeded to the requests. But, I have taken the liberty to stretch it a bit from the point of view of the Other Woman.
CasanovaWith the confidence Of a Colossus He strides Into my heart Wooing me With great panache. He oozed charm and finesse And I was doomed. He dripped Saccharine sweetness And I lapped it up Stealing kisses That were not mine, I could only share For I saw the ring too late Loving him so How could I say no To my Casanova With smooth dexterity He manged me And his Significant Other Time will run out for her He says. Give me your body and soul He cajoles For the divorce Will be final soon And desperately I cling Her frantic frenzied calls Equaled only to Our lovemaking How significant is she now? I ask, gleeful But I could only gloat For a while The echoes of my calls Making jarring Notes in my ears And easing out silently That frenzied tempo Creeps out and crawls Into another woman’s bed Casanova I welcome Your faithless smile Copyright © Celestine Nudanu 5/1/13
