The Woman and The Porter – Written October 2009 (Aged 34)

The Woman and The Porter

the woman and the porter
did she think about him,
when she slammed my door
and maybe out there,
there were a dozen things going on
but she was hypocrite
her adventures,
which fell out of her mouth
when she had overdone the drink
they all came back to my eager ears
that woman and the porter
i almost believe those crocodile tears
what does she want from me
was it my very being
or to just ignore the flirts
and the other people she was seeing
the woman she is
and the stories i heard
yet somehow she plays this victim
my god, how truly absurd
i am surprised she does not choke on her words
even in places i see faces
they acknowledge the rumours
on which i have heard the faintest of traces
well, she and the porter
