at home with ann


Posted on: 20 September 2007

one solitary tear
slides down her nose
she holds back the rest
… so perplexedcomprehension
slowly washes over her
she was a plaything used
… so confused

the friendly banter
the mild flirtation
with overtones of much more
… so unsure


they’re all the same
nothing changes

men play around

… so confounded

.she thought he was better
than the rest
silly girl, surprise surprise, why

… so mystified

We’ll have to hit the town next month. No more crying, no more wailing; just lots of fun and good times.



I ove the varied refrain at the end of each stanza.

So very creative,
and also,
so very truthful.

Your writing is
…so wonderful to read
on a lonely friday night.

Oops… I meant “I love the varied refrain…”

I look down at my keyboard too much and miss the typos in a haste to hit the send button.
