The Woman He Likes but Does Not Love

by Someone Invisible   Nov 22, 2017


How did you find yourself flat on your back with someone elses commitment between your legs?
Your heart is heavy and you threaten to choke on your hearts blood but you try not to show it.
Do not allow yourself to feel for someone who will not, cannot, feel for you, too.
You must remember your place.
Behind.
Secondary.
Temporary.
A woman that maybe he likes, but does not love; there for him when he does not like the woman he loves.
You are a soother, but you will never be the cure.
Remember.
Do not forget and you will lessen the hurt at the end.
Because you know it will end eventually.

    This is very powerful and interesting, and awfully common I suspect. Is it ever possible to have the sex without any emotion though? Very thought provoking, and the first two lines are just genius! :-) x

      I never thought i would allow myself to be in this position before. I feel terrible for all off us, guilty to her, sad for him, and just shitty for myself. Lol Im a selfish human being right now though, and I'm not ready to release him yet. I hope this isn't too common because it's definitely a painful way to love some body. Thank you for stopping to read it.

      Thank you kindly ma'am. It's an interesting experience being "that" person. And not interesting in a good, fun way. It's a daily struggle with myself on choosing to be a "good" person or continuing to allow this scenario to go on. So far, I've stayed selfish.

      It is pretty blunt, no? Heh heh I was mad when I wrote it. Maybe when I've gotten some distance I can go back and rewrite it to flow like ifeel a poem should, but this is face value for now. Thank you for the review, Ben. :)

    Awww. A sad place to be. Lovely opening lines, 'someone else's commitment between your legs'... These are very strong lines also:
    'A woman that maybe he likes, but does not love; there for him when he does not like the woman he loves. '

    I felt it, a good write.

      Thank you, if it weren't for the fact that it's about me, the lines about being a liked but not loved woman, there when he doesn't like the loved woman, would be a favorite line of mine. Thank you for the comments.
