Prey

Prey

A Poem by Desert Knave
"

For Day 6 of National Poetry Month

"

I know it's probably wrong to say

That you always made me feel like prey

A tasty meal to pass the day

Till something sweeter came your way


And all-in-all I did not mind

It wasn't like you were unkind

I guess I somehow hoped you'd find

Our stars were meant to stay aligned


But alas that wasn't meant to be

You never sought that bond with me

And went your way eventually

Becoming but a memory

dear Jim... so lovely to write these words for that
special person who did not realize she "panned" for
Gold... and did not know how to stake her claim,
or the value she left behind. You still will glitter
in the stream and catch the sunlight's beam. truly, Pat

Beautifully written Jim! I love the rhyme scheme and especially like these lines...(I guess I somehow hoped you'd find Our stars were meant to stay aligned) Well it was HER loss I might add. ~Sharon

i've known this...I was the fixer...and when her heart was back on its feet, she ran.

it happens...I have come to know memories before they become memories.
love this poem...it speaks to this reader...

Thank you most kindly. ~Jim
The rhythm and rhyme of this poem is spot on! Too often people use other people as bridges between love....and the bridge breaks when it is crossed over! Definitely her loss, my friend. This is one of your better writes! Lydi**
