that last verse had me thinking quite a bit..at first I thought she had left, but now I am not so sure.

vicious..a strong word

enjoyed this in a dark type of being at home alone and not wanting to be that way.. :o)

This is a bit of an unusual one for you Kealan. I wonder if it is based on a true story - I've heard one about somebody in a Jewish war camp who was kept alive by a young girl outside, who he later met and married in America.

This has a bit of a fairy tale feel about it. It's hard to believe in. Perhaps that is what you were trying for - perhaps that's what we are all striving for :)

It's incredible how an animal can enrich a person's life - and I'm not just talking about the physically disabled. I think it's because they offer unconditional love, which can be very precious when other areas of life are not running so smoothely.

What a lovely recreation of the story, Lynn. I'm glad she managed to fall in love with her husband all over again. It would have made a sad end, if she hadn't.

Larisa - we have a saying here that "a man chases a woman until she catches him". A man
likes the chase but a woman seeks more...often
a cause of problems! My verse sought to say
something similar - with "tongue in cheek".
A book of English "phrases and sayings" can be
a valuable acquisition for anyone trying to understand the mindset and humour of U.K.
folk.
Rachel - know what you mean. But nostalgia ain't what it used to be...:-)

i think sex should be available on the nhs, in the doctors room, with a stethescope. my doctor is quite willing and prefers to pay me for the service rather than bother with his fee.

The poem is really nice, but.... it doesn't remind me anything and ....I can't see any humor here. It tells me about some men's or women's nature: to satisfy your own ego and then....you can go to hell. Poor woman! She believed that the man loved her. But....
I can only imagine that their age was between 20 - 30. A woman planned to have a family with the loved one. A man, hearing about marriage, was just afraid to be bound. And.....at the same time, he wanted to know that someone loved him. When he found out about it he stopped communications. Isn't it a satisfaction of someone's ego?

:) i like this, it reminds of 'i need a little time..' beautiful south same kind of twist. light and humorous.

cant be doing with the phone, i would like to live in a world with no electricity never mind personal computers and telephones..what do we do with all the time that gadgets save us? even cars and aeroplanes are time travel machines and warp our expectations as we are able to travel 1000s miles in a matter of hours. we dont have to move anymore with the invention of the laptop. its a beautiful virtual world, but it wasnt that long ago that we had none of this stuff and im sure candlelight and parchment scroll were all the rage x
