I write what I feel…

Invisible 4



Chosen for her easy nature

Pliability, malleability

Plasticine-like quality

To be moulded into the perfect wife

To share his ambitions

His dreams and drive

T’wards the perfect life


And she, in love with love

Flattered and thrilled

Sweet-talked and cajoled

Happy to be chosen by this boy

From all the girls around

Was quite giddy with joy

To be the one he’d found


And so the years sped by

He, working hard with no time to play

Building his empire day by day

His trophy-wife playing her role

Yes dear, no dear, three bags full dear

Whatever you say dear I will agree

As long as I know that you love only me


Headlines flashed around the world

Luxury home bathed in blood

Tycoon dead

Wife of many years said

They were so looking forward

To his retirement at last

Reward for the hard work of the past

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Waiting for the next installment..Hurry.


  2. A rather fascinating narrative unfolding here, Adee – very clever 😀


  3. Oh no … did the trophy-wife find out that she wasn’t the only prize?


  4. We must all learn not to formulate who we are in relationship to the needs or requirements of others. Not to makes us mere “owned property” with no sense of self or the possibility of self actualization.
