Life is full of twists …

Life is full of twists and
turns.
The unexpected is the
norm.
You looked for
roses and pretty cards,
'I love you' whispered in your ear,
tickling
and reassuring your fragile
heart.
Dogged determination stands where you
had hoped romance would be.
You were disappointed to learn that I prefer
uncomplicated sex to
romance.
I never have liked those
games.
Still, you are
here
and I am
here
and you continue to
nourish our (not so perfect)
love.

  2. Thomas,

    My radical plan is this: I plan to ‘unfollow’ everyone, despite the knowledge of my laborious climb up the infamous ladder of “likes”. I admit to having felt dogged by a vague sense of insincerity at times along the way.

    Anyway, it is clear to me that I must start again; find a new tack, so to speak.
    Now, if I could just remember how that song of self-reinvention goes………

    Come to think of it, I think I shall copy and paste what I have just written here and make it a Blog post.

    fondly,
    Ma-Li

  4. Whatever intervals of timeless time intervene between your blog posts Thomas, I remain a steadfast Admirer of your writing.

    Undoubtedly, we will never be embarrassingly popular with our writing style, but then again, genuineness never played to insincerity.

    With warm affection,
    Ma-Li

    • Thank you, Michele. I miss all the fun of being more active here, reading your poetry and everyone else’s, as well as, posting more regularly. I’ll try to get back to it.
