Once cheated, a woman braces herself.
AND I COILED UP INSIDE


He met and praised me to the sky,
He promised me the moon.
He ravished me and went away,
Saying he would come soon.

I waited for him night and day,
My time I did abide.
But his seed grew and showed outside,
And I coiled up inside.

How soon he meant, I do not know,
I know but only this,
I never saw him again and
Now only this I wish:

That he may now never come back
And cast his vile shadow
On him who was born of his seed.
Him I just can’t let go.
