How to destroy a woman

How to destroy a woman

I was remembering that time
when we lived in Wroot,
in the middle of nowhere.
John Wesley's land
the last place on Earth God made,
I was sort of thinking about
that trip I made, with the kids
to Brighton, and you stayed
at home, to 'get things done'
I remember how touched I was,
that you gave me 100 pounds
to go and have some fun,
and I thought that you loved me,
after alll, despite the arguments  and
pitfalls, and I promised to bring you back, what you asked..
May be  I missed you that week
down South,, though you didn't phone,
which made me want to surprise you,
and come home..
one day early,..
However, you were not pleased,
you never rose from your seat..
when we came in. the children laughing to see Daddy 
A car arrived half an hour later,
it turned in our drive and sped off..
at the time I thought it odd..
seen as we live in one horse town..
people pass through, they don't double back..
Your anger grew into despondancy.. you had been more happy to see me go,
than to see me return, and if I had known back then what really was happening I would have stayed away with the children.
