She was taken aback that was for sure,
Never expecting to see him anymore,
Years had passed since that very last night,
When his true persona had come to light.
Recognising him instantly, he hadn’t changed,
Just a few greying hairs were a sign he had aged,
Now they were seated several tables apart,
He hadn’t seen her, if he had he’d depart.
Discreetly looking, she couldn’t budge,
For many years she had held a grudge,
She tried to pretend his memory was dead,
Or at least push it deep within her head,
He had run away to make a new start,
But seeing him now had enraged her heart,
All those answers he had never given,
Made her angry, her soul now driven.
She had never got over the hurt he had caused,
Unable to move on, her life was on pause,
He had won her over right from the start,
Reaching in to her chest, stealing her heart.
A whirlwind romance married within weeks,
Cracks started appearing, answers she did seek,
Finding out their marriage was just a sham,
He turned and walked, not acting like a man.
A warrant had been issued for his arrest,
He‘d broken the law so this was best ,
But where did he live? No one could trace,
Disappearing for years, no sign of his face,
She knew this time would come her way,
He’d get his comeuppance, and have to pay,
She called the police, with his whereabouts,
Now Justice would prevail, this is no doubt.
She had married a bigamist, she felt such a fool,
Never divorcing, he had five wives in all,
Treating her and the others like pieces of dirt,
He showed no remorse to the women he hurt.
She had found it difficult to trust other men,
For fear that history would repeat again,
He’d stolen her heart and ripped it apart,
But today is the day, her life will restart.
