love poem after end of affair



  1. I came from a middle class Jewish family and have 3 siblings. I was a demanding child apparantly, with a foul mouth, so it seemed acceptable for my mother to allow the new man in her life to beat me. She was not opposed to using a 'little discipline', on occasion either. I have copies of some notes from my case file, as at 13 I was put into care 'for my safety'. However, they do not explain why the police decided against pressing charges against my mother's boyfriend (now her husband). Suffice to say he is a very wealthy man ...... but sure that has absolutely nothing to do with it!

I was a Clinic Manager for 4 years till it came to a sudden end 6 months ago. I will not disclose why in the likely event I will come across as bitter and twisted, which no doubt I am bordering on. So what does an unemployed workaholic, unhappily married mother of two do? I had my first and only affair after 30 years, became emotionally involved with a man I had no right to (yes, I am a Scarlet Woman too) and went on a cruise with my pay off, with a girlfriend and young son to sort out my head. Unfortunately I was on unsuitable medication which resulted in me displaying signs of bi-polar, including spending money on extravances I could ill-afford. I was in no mood for doing anything other than socialising, sunning myself and generally having fun. When the holiday ended 2 weeks later, I was still unsure if and how I was going to leave. It was a quick decision once home though. My husband was resistant, even when I told him of my unfaithfulness. He finally relented and within the month I secured a spacious 2 bed flat in Suburbia and that is where I am now. How do I support myself you may wonder? Well I have savings that are quickly running out, but irresponsibly expect something will come up sooner or later. I should add that my husband is not a bad man or anything; in fact he provided for me and our two children well for 30 years. Emotionally? Well, that's another story,

During my affair I began writing poetry for my own amusement. It has now evolved into an autobiography in rhyme and I have had interest from one or two sources. Who knows? I had little education as was moved so often from schools as I was a disruptive pupil. I think the beginning of my book shows promise, with the middle being a bit crap and the third part best of all. The crap will be edited out and rewritten. I have been told I have talent by my 'not my agent' who says it should be published  (first and only who has read it in its entirety), but I need to know what 'you' think. Am I 'delusional' to believe I will be ?  Update on 24/1/13 - yes, it is very likely I am delusional; the 'interest' turned out to be 'self-interest'. Check out my diary posts, 'My Not My Agent', and all will become clear.

Just in case I have not illustrated myself well enough here - how about this?

INTOLERANT? PERHAPS A LITTLE * IS MY VIEW JUST A TAD BRITTLE? * IS THERE VENOM IN MY SPITTLE? * BE CONDEMNED AS I BELITTLE? * WELL HEAR ME OUT FOR A SEC * AS I SPEW MY DISRESPEC' * WHAT THE HECK - DON'T GIVE A FECK * HAVE YOU NOT HEARD OF SPELL-CHECK? *

CALL ME CYNICAL BUT I ONLY WANT GENUINE FANS - NOT THOSE TELLING ME THEY WILL BECOME ONE IF I RETURN THE FAVOUR ...... I DON'T DO FAVOURS! I AM LOOKING FOR GENUINE COMMENTS WHETHER POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE AND PREFERABLY CONSTRUCTIVE!  I ONLY BECOME A FAN OF WORKS I ACTUALLY LIKE! AND THANK YOU TO THE GENUINE BTW! OH AND IF THIS MESSAGE IS NOT CLEAR, PLEASE READ MY POEM, 'ME? CYNICAL ABOUT BOOKSIE FANS?

Favourite witty reads at the moment are: Ephraim Crud, Garry Croft, Patri Poe, Moonphish, Bert Broomberg, Stormbird Throneshaker, Anattasio, Insane Membrane,  and bobthebuilder, but since I wrote this there are bundles more too, but can't name them all, so sorry to anyone who might feel overlooked - you are most certainly not.
