Unromantic comedy

Unromantic comedy

A Poem by Mia

All the toys in a box

Dropped in a shallow pool

Man up...go and get them

But you’re too clever

A teaspoon of water is just as deadly

 

Real men don’t cry

Dangerous women can’t bear the sound

Your life time of sobs bottled up

I don’t care

I deal in power

 

Home hunting place for two

We found a house

But that’s not enough room

For me to not be with you

 

The truth is easier to remember

If you use words to lie

Toes curling. Fingers scratching

Eyes rolling, closing. Shut

 

The grass is wet

The summer is warm

Children dance in puddles

Unaware of you and me

And what we are, no more

I love the title, it drew me in.
The poem was so much more sad than I expected. This is a well written poem. What I enjoyed most was the sense of acceptance, the statements rather then the questions. This is what it is, and there is a great deal of beauty in speaking so plainly of a situation.
Great job!

Wow, this one is fantastic. A perfect description of a failed relationship. I liked all the stanza but the third and forth had the best wording for me.

I'm not quite sure how all this hangs together. Especially the last line of the first stanza.

Poignant striking write Mia , you conveyed all the emotions so well. Last line says it all. Like this stanza particularly Home hunting place for two

We found a house

But that’s not enough room

For me to not be with you

Whoa!!
Mia!! This is absolutely a word feast
perhaps served at the funeral of a relationship
but a feast of wisdom and emotion
just the same.
Oh, please send me read requests... I didn't know what they were for months and when I finally woke up, I had over 400... I am now down to 270 +... but I try to read at least one poem per poet and I would like that to include you!

You've done yourself an great job on this poem my friend...
each stanza grows into a different story
as if growing for experienced...
Failure is always a door step ahead of us and always we are unaware of that i guess.
a great year for a coming new year..
cheers to a new year my friend...

There is something very cold in this. "Dangerous women can’t bear the sound... I don’t care, I deal in power." Looking back, perhaps with dark feelings, on a failed relationship, seeing things that eyes had closed and rolled to. And in the end, life goes on for everyone else no matter where we fall. Beautiful tragic poem Mia.

I missed you Mia!
Moving so powerfully through the shadows... the edges of life.. of wanting.. of wishing... There is a haunted feel even in the the summer's warm wonder.
