Untitled Relationship Poem #9

grey days
those are the ones to rip me back
to peel the barely formed scar
rent once more
furrows in my heart.
I remember cool fall evenings
held in your arms
warmth derived
from love
Tears escape
trail over gauntness
soul searing disgust.
I remember long conversations
of learning
of truth
of deception
of strength
of weakness
you swore you would always care
I could count on that.
Forever and anon.
Funny how your forever and anon
lasted only as long as it took for you to find sweeter lips
than mine own.
April 8/19

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
