Excerpt - Through the Eyes of a Woman by SOMJIA 

~ (Kindle Location 7 – 41)

Female friend!
That’s not why I am upset
It’s the way you were staring at her
With that same glare you had in your eyes
When we first met.

I know you by now
I can predict your next move
Before the thought even manifest

Now… I do believe that you still love me
But not like before
Typical man— you feel successful in your sexual conquest
So I’m not attractive to you anymore.

Is it the weight that I’ve gained
From the three times that we’ve combined
Our 23 pairs of chromosomes?
Or the bags under my eyes from staying up all night
Worrying about your ignorant ass?

Maybe you don’t realize that you’ve changed!
Maybe you don’t realize that things are not the same!
And return back to the man I fell in love with
So I can feel proud to carry your last name.

The Carrier of Life is Available on Amazon!
