Our last evening together

I play back each word

within my mind

wondering what

caused our relationship

to crumble

before my eyes

Maybe it wasn’t words

it may be someone new

entered your life

and you felt I

wouldn’t understand

and would only try

to talk you out of it

I sit alone tonight

blaming myself

In the days to come

if you discover what


our relationship to break

that could not

be put back together

would you

write me a letter

so I’ll know?

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
