The Jester

The Jester

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers


The Jester

 

 


You took all there was of me

without ever once

committing yourself to love.

Like an unmade bed

you stripped me of my senses,

leaving me without word

or warning.

How typical of you

to walk away,

to feel no remorse

or regret.

Someday, the king of hearts will fall

then I shall seek to be

the jester.

A poem that could go either way. A man would do it.. a woman would do it too.. and the broken heart is the casualty..

...yes, I did see it...wasn't it cool? Got some pictures, too! Thank you, my girl!
Nothing worse than a heartless man
everything can be taught
but sensitivity is impossible to come to life in the heart of man victim to his desires
like a lion
eats and snatches
walks away
a bit creepy

sigh...such a terrible thing to experience but you capture it so well...and I enjoy the hope at the end that one day the player will perhaps fall victim to his own games and the speaker will be there to smile...stunning poetry and accompanying photo, as always :)
