Shards

Joe thought things were going fine

Til he came across messages one night

That cut into his soul just like a knife

They were between another man

& Joe’s wife

The things she said, he couldn’t believe,

Like that she hated him & she wanted to leave

Joe felt like his heart was in shards,

in agony & left to bleed

He wondered how

he’d been too blind to see

What was then so glaring

His wife said when caught,

that she was just lonely & angry

That the words didn’t mean a thing

despite what he’d clearly seen

Joe felt like he’d been stabbed in the back,

Wondered how they could ever come back from that
