The Other Woman


A quiet and dark hunger lurks
Restlessly deep inside of me.
It tugs relentlessly at my heart
Whispers constantly inside my head
And it fills me with a sense of dread.
My phone just sits as if it has forgotten
How to ring, my heart persistently empty,
Telling me over and over again
In that nice but nasty voice
That you are resting quietly
Back in her arms
Spellbound by her charms
While I am resting fitfully
Aching for your arms
Spellbound by your charms.
It’s like I knew something had to go wrong
Cause it was all feelin’ too right
And I can’t say a word in spite.
You covered all the bases when you
Told me right from the very start
That the one thing you would always
Do with me was to say goodbye,
And I am forced to know
That you are resting quietly
Back in her arms
Spellbound by her charms
While I am resting fitfully
Aching for your arms
And still spellbound by your charms.
I cannot help but know - this is how
You remind me of what I truly am ‒
Second place ‒ second best ‒ second hand…
Just the dime store goods that never make it
To the showroom floor
Forever destined to be less ‒ never more…
And you are what you are… my elusive lover,
Liking my pants around my feet
My nasty little ways in the hotel bed,
My voice on the phone at 4:00 a.m.
Adoring you as only I can do…
Cause I am resting fitfully
Aching for your arms
Spellbound by your charms
And you are smiling with your power
Both of us knowing that you will forever be
Resting quietly
Back in her arms
Spellbound by her charms.

Hhhmmmm..........me?....or the wife?.....laughing softly......I can only imagine that this is what it might feel like to be the other women....I don't want to find out, which is why I tend to avoid queries from those who seek "discrete" relationshipe, as well as those who's marital status is "prefer not to say".

Smiling softly........thank you itsjustmechris.......kind of how it works in real life when one deems to accept a role as the other woman. I truly do have to wonder which woman to sympathize with the most..
