Love between us is dead,dead!

Comes no more lying sounds

from your mouth,silenced by truth


though sorry within the the breast

beats your apologetic heart.


And I remain contentedly deafened

to any renewed pleas,dressed in crocodile tears.


Now,I can happily settle down

to being miserable.

Thank you Colin,Rose,Patricia and Stefan.Its a word from my fathers cursing repertoire.Rose,I think 'boundah and cad' are words used moreso by the upper classes.Of course my father had other profanities in his repertoire,but perhaps a little too profane to be included here! Thank you all again.Jemima.
