who tempts and tramples men's hearts,
to inflict physical pain on the ones they love,
to come between spouses,
to sneak off into dark corners of friends' houses
when it's late and we've called to say we've gone to sleep.
I will never intentionally make another girl weep.
Because now I know what it feels like
to only be able to picture
her oversized mouth gnawing at his lips
every time he leans in to kiss me,
to be broken inside
and physically ill
and too shaky to quietly drive away.
