Poem: Homewrecker

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Homewrecker is a poem about how she waited to enjoy the good life with the one she loved only for him to change all the plans the two of them had made. He can't tell her the truth when he decides to leave her. He lies instead. Later he confesses she was a Homewrecker & wants her back.

"4AM" by Melaine Fiona



She waits for the moments
they can stroll together in the park,
relax on their deck with a quiet dinner,
doing absolutely nothing, together or alone.

To share moments as a family,
feeling the comfort of him being home
protecting his family through the night.

But the moment it happens
he pulls the rug out from under her feet,
tossing his family away
claiming he is no longer happy,
instantly changing overnight
like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Bolstering claims of not understanding,
stating he might need help
but he needs to live alone.

Shockingly, she discovers
the truth raising it's ugly head,
learning he had no plans to be alone,
for there is another.

Heartache overcomes her,
when months later
after tearing their lives apart,
he wants her to take him back,
stating the other woman was only a Homewrecker.
