Crime of Passion


I wonder what my reaction

would be

if I came home and had

to see

you with someone that was

not me?

Would I stay or

would I flee?

The four stages

of shock

when you find someone else


on the end of your man’s


and you need a loaded


So do you stand quietly

by the door

do you want to

watch some more


do you want to scream at her

she’s a whore

or collapse on

the floor or

walk out?

Do you do it all

real calmly

like you don’t really

want it to be

“Would you like a cup of tea?”

“Would you please explain to me?”(tearfully)

That would be nice

but it’s not me

This is more

my reality

“I’m gonna kill the both of you for free!”

“How could you do this to me?” (insanely)

But a gun wouldn’t leave me

in doubt…

  1. The French have this as a legal thing to do to a cheating spouse. I think it helps, we are human after all.
    Kait, it took me a whole month to write my short story, please can you do the honour of reading it and leaving a comment to tell me what you think.
    I just wrote a strange short story about England and Scotland. I am looking forward to writing part 2 but let me know what you think

    • The honour was all mine, thank you for the confidence!😁 I agree with you, we are all human and passionate to a degree, some just a little more than others πŸ˜‰πŸ˜! Happy writing!

  4. oh god, what a terrible shock it would be? I have actually sometimes wandered, assume everyone does, how you would act in that situation. My friend is in a wheelchair, and because of this she can no longer be with her husband intimately, and she is worried he will need to look elsewhere, as the thought horrifies her, but also she wants him to be happy. It must be so hard.

    • Oh no way – to have to contemplate that you will let your husband find another intimate partner must be overwhelming!!! My heart goes out to her and her husband – that’s a tragic situation 😦
