Poem: She's Only a Guest

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

"It doesnt feel like home anymore - So Cold" by Ben Cocks

poem-shes-only-a-guest

He acts like a gentleman
treating her like a lady,
but makes her feel like a guest
with no place to call home.

He boldly claims
it’s their house, not his
but when he gets angry
he changes his tone,
leaving her lost in despair.

She glances around
seeing nothing to show her existence
only the flower beds
she carefully planted
could remind anyone of her presence.

He may treat her like a lady
the love of his life,
but wants nothing to change
keeping each detail of his house
the same as when he lived alone.
