Mistress in Distress

(Kristy, wife turned mistress)

she has the charm
smiles so warm
rose unwilted by time
gilded in her prime
not withered
though weathered.

one-and-twenty lovers line
in her signature clothesline
of material and carnal lust
she frolics in the dust
of lovers’ gold given to hold
and behold
her body, soul
and all.

her estranged, dejected spouse –
his pain she cannot douse
for him, she is lost cause
and lost too, her pathetic brood
the cause for which she stood
is never understood.

she is despised
she is reviled.

an exile in the isle of scorn!

– between wife and husband is mistress.

(c) 2003 Chito L. Aguilar

“No. 2 is not No.1, and ne’er the twain shall meet. And they better not.”

– Jullie Daza, Etiquette for Mistresses, Rule #1: Mistress is not Mrs. Know your place.
