The Other Woman II

Don't think I didn't notice.
You watched.
Stared at her.
Your grip on my arm
Momentarily loosened.

I saw the quick flare in your eyes,
Followed by a shadow of disappointment.
Felt you withdraw a bit more,
Never hearing a word I said.

Could have forgiven you,
Might forget,
Ignored the signs even.

You stole a glance.
When she had gone,
You looked back.

Yes,it is the looking back - the looking twice - that winds you up. It's even in the holy books.

True.

Really Nana Yaw? Where in the holy books? (I'm not asking to be a smartass. I'm asking cos I want to learn)

The looking back is just to get the full picture. Got half the picture. Why not get the other half?
I'd say relax dear, I'm just browsing". Y'all don't try on every dress you look at whilst strolling through the mall right?

That said, I have to admit it is disrespectful when guy makes no attempt to conceal the double-take.

@Myne: Yes, he should go.

@Mike: Browsing when you have already made a purchase?. But i agree, it is disrespectful.

@lucci: I'm with you, sista.
