I thought ...Man and wife
Swearing eternal love for Life.
But people do change their mind.
Often leaving spouse and promises behind.
I thought ... a loyal dog.
For an approving look so willing to slog.
But they age so much faster
Often leaving behind a sorrowing master.
I thought ..so hard and long
Spouse nor dog , both were wrong.
For faithful to his very end
Is for a man ...HIS OWN END !!!
For from the moment that he is born
It is to Death that he is sworn.
Despite Life’s roller coaster ride
Death is ever faithful and by his side.
An indulgent smile allowing him his breath
Completely loyal , an all-knowing Death.

WI Prompt / 09 May 2008 : "FAITHFUL"

Her glinting eyes a cold and steely grey
Watched him as if he were helpless prey.
Fear ran rivulets on his furrowed brow
He knew he had to escape the situation somehow.
Then Jack was nimble and Jack was quick
And Jack knew this was his last possible trick .
Like a vision it dawned, with a blinding flash
He yanked the wire in a sudden dash .
A twirl a cut a split a splice ..and it seemed ready.
Though her eyes darted, the expectant smile was steady.
His fumbling fingers tripped over the keys
Shaking and shivering like his jellied knees.
With a hesitant spurt as it spluttered to life
She slid to position like, through butter, a hot knife.
As the ferocious roar turned into a delighted purr
He seemed relieved at the lack of flying fur .
As her exuberant fingers hit the keyboard again
He tiptoed backwards and out of her den.
Out in the open, he sagaciously nodded his head
And a knowing smile on his face then spread.
He urged his bike to a sputtered kick start
And zoomed out of there with a relieved heart.
For he knew ........
Prolonged absence from the net makes people strange
Some go wild or some even dangerously derange !!

“Outrageous”, I had screamed in quiet fury
Surveying the clothes strewn around in a hurry.
There had been such anticipation and sense of excitement
And that alluring black bustier had been a definite enticement.
He had stood expectantly , hanging on to my every word
He tried to reason and his eyes even implored.
But I stood my ground and looked at him with scorn.
And that once caring man was now my enemy sworn.
Taking a deep breath, I held it in till it hurt ...
And continued to resolutely zip up the velvet skirt.
My fingers quivered and my hand , it shook
I steeled myself to put in all the effort it took .
His words came back to me and I almost died
I lost my composure, then broke down and cried.
Feeling all exhausted and tired and spent
My reckless rebellion I sincerely did repent.
Now sorrowfully I would ask him to take back
The skirt that I had picked up off the rack .
For the store hand had been right
That god damn skirt was definitely too tight !!
