Lone Honeymooner

Lone Honeymooner

A Poem by preoccupied

Falling endlessly into love, until it's no longer there. For the '10 Words' contest.


unwanted like curdling milk that was left out in the heat
although I was not at fault
the price of bitterness I must pay and keep
but a sweet & juicy apricot I wished to be

like a moose has antlers to fight
I had this strong heart of mine
until you, a phantom that night
started to whine, such a poignant whine

and suddenly I was clairvoyant
so I was forced to care for the lost soul of you
first I felt a spasm of annoyance
but soon I felt a twinge of care for you

seven months later I had completely fallen for helpless little you
I carelessly laid down my heart's shield
for someone I had only barely knew
yet so quickly my decision was sealed

you had me wrapped around your finger
I resided with our wedding ring there
I should have known you were only there to linger
love was never a game played fair

seven months too long, you said
you should have left me sooner
now I lay here, with my mangle head
in this frumpy bed, a lone honeymooner
