Unrequited

“I think I am keener than you.”
She laughed but didn’t contradict.
Better he should think that
Than know the truth.
She couldn’t afford to offer a sliver of hope.
Much better for everyone
If he never found out
How keen she really was.

Too much 

procrastination, 

too little motivation. 

Things really can’t  

get worse.

I have not writ 

one single word 

much less a line or verse.

Day Eight – way behind!!

There’s a sell by date on my apple.
If I eat it after the date what will happen?
Will the pips sprout and turn me
Into a vessel for a tree?

Family Portrait

The darkness is creeping in
They smile and smile
But family and friends have
Crept away
And I am alone
Alone
Alone.

A Prayer

My cherry tree sways
Sweeping clouds away
From the clear blue.
Stretching skyward,
Beseeching the heavens
For a stay of execution.

Feedback

I wrote a little story
And posted it online.
People clicked they liked it
And that made me feel fine.
Then you gave it a ‘one star’,
You thought it worth your time
To say you didn’t like it,
But not to tell me why.
I am not discouraged
And I made a little rhyme,
To say thanks for your opinions
And stop by anytime.

Depictions of dreams
Shout from the walls
Bold and Brassy
Screaming with confidence.
Others, more shyly scribed
Whisper their hopes
Quiet and calm
But no less certain.
