One sentence was all it took

And I sometimes wonder

what colour paint might have coloured my days

if you had seen more

then what the world had taught you to see

All I wanted was to read you a poem

The topic: Forgiveness

I see Irony laughing at me now

but irony is lost on ten year olds

who loved language from the start

the way words made melodies

All she wanted was to show you the song

that surrounded her heart

Smoking cigarettes on the porch 

afternoon sun fading

I think you didn’t know it was poison that you offered

so blindly
