I Saw Her

I kept away

Though I longed to see

The woman who shares

Your life


I could have gone

Any time, though

You don’t want me to

See your wife


‘She’s my build

With dark hair

And fringe’

My friend told me before


But she’s more round

And sullen

Not so pretty

as I thought


I saw her today

And she saw me

Our eyes locked

In a stare


My panther’s gaze

Saw in and beyond

To infiltrate her there


If I get close

I’ll understand

What draws you to her side


There must be some

Thing I can’t see

That sense can override


So I’ll return

Once more to feast upon

Your spouse my dear


And fiercely hope

That this will help

Alleviate my fear.
