My husband killed himself 
She just came out with it 
I felt slapped in the face by the world 
I loved her ten minutes previous 
She had won me over with that ‘we’re definitely on’ look 
The look all drunks pine for 
I knew horribly that we were passed that now 
I realized who I’d ever so quickly become... 
I was the confidant 
I was the listener 
The gay friend 
We’d never met before 
But I felt she was genuine in the way she was talking 
A drunken sincerity only rivalled by h*rny old men on the squirt 
Who tell you of their apartment and Viagra habits 
From sexy to helpless in a second she went 
And it wasn’t just me who noticed it 
The other’s scattered slowly but surely 
Heartless cowards edging away to their comfortable conversation 
Leaving me to take the brunt 
Alone 
But why was I still here? 
I could’ve left hours ago 
I had a bottle or two of wine already stashed 
But there I stood in the room, the confidant 
She outpoured her mind 
She unpoured her will 
And her lust 
I was no part of any of these 
Not blameless or dire 
I was that guy 
That DESPERATE guy 
I needed whoever’s life story it was 
For half an hour I was hooked in her life 
‘I would help her!’ I thought 
Sort all this mess 
Become the hero; keep the kids in her care, save the house all the things the good guy does
But then she looked at me... but differently 
This time it wasn’t filled with lust, gratefulness, hope and pain 
This look was satisfaction 
A look to suggest my thought’s had been irrational 
A look I knew only too well 
She knew that from here on in 
She had me under her control 
That extra hour changed my life 
From a relatively free spirit to a butler 
I was out of my league 
Playing the big time as they say 
She was entirely inaccessible 
Entirely easy but relentlessly controlling 
I loved her only before this happened 
Were getting married soon...
