If life was a horror movie
he’d be the killer
monster villain vampire
eternally handsome and charming.
Prince Caspian hypnotized
by a green alluring snake
the lady of the lake
He was fixated on torture
and was always alarming
drinking, drugging and womanizing.
Alpha male quarterback and pitcher
leader rock star front man
with long wavy hair like a god.
He always had to prove his ferocity.
He was bilingual extraordinaire
Spanish horse muscular
wiry small boned lean and toned.
I was a Clydesdale in comparison
I was an Amazon in comparison.
He was a white varsity version
of Prince without the lace,
the pumps and the purple.
In heels I towered over him
but I rarely wore them.
We were a mix match
like Streisand and Redford
he laughed once and compared us to them
but “The way we were”
wasn’t even a good movie.
I’m glad we’re not together Steve
I’m glad you’re no longer torturing me
with your mercurial confusion.
Sometimes love leads us to our enemies
and we fall hard for them
mistaking hell for heaven.
How else can we learn
