Restless - Poem by Patricia Kelley

Well, you're meeting her on the midnight flight to Memphis.
Taking the red eye to Texas,
I saw the receipt where you bought her a pearl necklace.
I'm so made I'm breathless.
I don't know what to say anymore.
We've been down this road before.
While I'm at home taking care of the children,
You're out taking care of a cheating man's business.
You don't listen to me anymore.
You're heartless.
You're a shallow hearted man walking through darkness.
Of the stakes at home,
You choose to make your mistakes.
My emotions have put on their hydraulic brakes.
I realize now.
You're just a fake.
You want your cake.
And eat it too.
I've had enough of you.
I need a man that can be true.
When he walks out that door,
I don't have to worry, who he's going to meet on the dance floor.
I don't have to worry about our life becoming bore.
You know it takes two to make a relationship.
It won't be long before you get on another ship.
You can't make a commitment to just one.
You're always on the run.
Running into another woman's arms',
They'll soon find out it's a short lived charm.
When they feel the strike of your arm,
You'll be alone again.
Feeling the rain,
Of your overdue pain,
I have no sympathy for a man that can't stay faithful.
That's unfaithful.
That's not grateful.
You don't deserve a family.
You just put us through constant agony.
So, take your flight to Memphis,
And meet her in Texas for breakfast.
And leave your family restless.
All because of a senseless man
