Stupid Cupid

entry picture

I see you lurking about
making him say 
sweet nothings
to lure me out.

This time 
I am being smart,
walling off 
my broken heart.

Using your 
flaming arrows
to paint the sky.

Let the world know
you are really 
not a nice guy.

You are a trickster
who makes girls cry
with your stupid lies.

My schooled soul 
knows the truth
betrayed.

Romantic love
is an illusion,

Wardrobe Mistress - '85

Wardrobe Mistress - '85

 

I stood in front

of the wardrobe

we shared

and stared.

 

I had just seen her

with overalls down

below her knees,

 

your familiar

bare bum

tensed.

 

Its thrusting

only previously seen

in awkward twisting

mirror-glimpses.

 

Your shirts and tees

hang between

pink and lime,

purple & olives,

 

shady gre...

I've done it - although I'm a beginner, I posted my first attempts on my Wordpress Blog as 7 Poems for Valentine's Day by first posting one poem a day, then finally the sound files.  

You're very welcome to check them out on here:  francesmacaulayforde.wordpress.com

The Gate

entry picture

By : Ali Taha Alnobani

 

Yesterday she invited me to see the moon in her garden
The wind tried to prevent me
Although I was sad, I walked under the rain
The gate was full of small doors and small cats were looking at me
Their shining eyes told me the tale of my baby
One night she was looking at the moon,
But a big cat with shining eyes got her dreams broken.

One Night I Stole a Purple Balloon

 

One Night I Stole a Purple Balloon

One night I stole a purple balloon

From a cheaply decorated nightclub

I was pissed out of my mind so it looked pretty

And taking it seemed a good idea.

 

When I tied it up at home

Like a child decorating for a birthday party

I did not expect it to be there for long: balloons

Tend to run out of air or escape when you lo...
