R Bennett Okerstrom
She waits for him to understand.
But he won't understand.
She waits for him to realize.
But he won't realize.
She waits for him to justify.
But he won't justify.
When togetherness becomes insipid
She looks for something more.
When companionship becomes lassitude
She looks for something new.
When forever becomes eternity
She looks for something true.
Separation of guilt from infidelity
In an attempt to achieve happiness
Seems difficult to comprehend.
Lustful eyes, alluring lips, soft touch.
Vows of the past sometimes fade
To words simply spoken at a different time.
Promises kept for years, even decades
Become opaque as time divides two souls.
She waits for him to understand
But he wont understand at all.

DISCLAIMER: STORYMANIA DOES NOT PROVIDE AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR REVIEWS. ALL REVIEWS ARE PROVIDED BY NON-ASSOCIATED VISITORS, REGARDLESS OF THE WAY THEY CALL THEMSELVES.
"i love your poetry.it's a great job and full of honesty :)" -- Lizzy bryan, Chicago.
"Right fuckin' on, man." -- jkpayson.
"A subject I know all too well. Excellnt work. You are incredibly talented! " -- JM.
"While the lonely man fails to understand... You've shown a bit of depth here, perhaps your hyper-masculinity IS surmountable." -- olef .
"Hyper-masculinity huh? " -- R. Bennett.
"Full of honesty, but hopefully not personal experience. Some of this is pretty dark. ;-)" -- Mistina, Memphis, TN, USA.
"Shouldn't that read, "Mistina, NYC, NY" by now? This poem is meant to be from the married woman's perspective, not from mine. I'm not a married woman (I don't think) :-)" -- R. Bennett.
"Referring to the overall dark body. Not this poem in particular." -- Mistina.
"There is always light to balance the darkness! Remember this: "Keep your face to the sunshine and you will never see the shadows."" -- R. Bennett.
"In my situation it was my husband that cheated, but your words truly helped me find acceptance, forgiveness and peace. Now I can finally see the sunshine. Thank you!" -- JM.
"That is incredibly neat that a poem would have that effect on you. The finest compliment a writer can receive." -- Mistina.
"BTW, R. Bennett--You know that some of us prefer the shadows." -- Mistina.
"I am one of them." -- R. Bennett.
"I'll take the sunshine anyday. Thanks for pointing the way." -- JM.
"Often times the man can be blind. He should see this coming." -- P. Stewart.
"You are correct. But some men can't see it coming because they are too engulfed in themselves and not their significant other." -- R. Bennett.
"Spoken like a true romantic" -- Meghan, Atlanta, Georgia.
"At times." -- R. Bennett.
"Just remember there are two sides to every story." -- JM.
"I'm not sure what you are referring to JM. " -- R. Bennett.
"Just the perspective of a married woman who was cheated on. Being cheated on was the most painful experience of my life. Building the bridge to get over it took a long time, but I have some very special people in my life today because I was able to do that. Blaming the other person just delayed the healing process. As I stated before, reading this poem actually helped me to understand and stop blaming. I don't know if that makes any sense or not." -- JM.
"I understand what you are saying now." -- R. Bennett.
"No...we do not understand...ever" -- mattie, va.
"When it comes to infidelity it is usually harder to understand why two people are even together if one or both stray. Convenience? For the kids? Adventure? ????" -- R. Bennett.
"Fear kept me in my marriage, R. Bennett. I was afraid of being alone, afaid I wouldn't be able to survive without him. Pretty sad isn't it? It's even sadder to think about some of the things I would have missed out on had I not overcome that fear." -- JM.
"Absolutely Brillant! Powerful, Poignant and as Honest as prose can get! You sir are a true Poet!!!" -- Monte.
"Thanks Monte! I thought you might like it." -- R. Bennett.
"I thought it was very powerful. I totally get it, too. I've felt these feelings and this is as real as it gets. It takes a true writer to capture the true feelings of others when they have no personal experience of what they are writing about. Excellent work RB, as usual." -- Michelle.
"Thanks again Michelle!!" -- R. Bennett.
"Whoa! This says it all! Bravo!" -- The Reviewer.
"It's always a pleasure to read your poetry; it's very strong. You deserve to be on the most read list! Congrats. I'm working on songs lately--mostly therapy. Let me know what you think of Seven Eleven and Some. I value your opinion." -- Mia Angello, WI.
"Thank you Mia. I will review your work and let ya know what I think. " -- R. Bennett.
"Excellent job, RB. You're a lot deeper than you appear with that pretty boy face and smart ass attitude. I guess you didn't cut ALL your English classes at MSU. " -- Mr. Big B, Wood Dale, USA, IL.
"No, not all of them Mr. B." -- R. Bennett.
"There is a definite reason why this poem has historically stayed on the Top Hits list. This is a work of art. Well done." -- Harold, Worchester, MA, USA.
"Thank you Harold. Your kind words flatter me." -- R. Bennett.
"Interesting how we go into marriage with such unbridled enthusiasm to be different. I agree...she has a long wait." -- Royal D.
