This poem is written from the point of view of a woman who has had relationships with a number of married men. The men all claim to find her more attractive than their wives, in fact better in every way, but they still return to their family lives at the end of it. The poem suggests that illicit relationships don't end well and the woman is looking for something that she can't find.
