widow in black

artwork by Jack Vettriano

he died in her arms
i was kissing the kids goodnight
she didn’t deserve that honor
i don’t deserve the shame
of the awful truth she hid
beneath my perfume
infidelity has a way
of entering the room silently
and then pulling the floor out
a tug here, a drag there
at first you think you’re imagining things
then Gibraltar tumbles
beware those passing fancies
my dears
they just may be the death of you
