all that sparkles…ain’t twenty twin twin

all that sparkles…ain’t twenty twin twin

A Poem by Shirlena

to all former ace sisters who side stepped my generositynot realizing the lalique they chose to thrust over mezzanine dash onto pavement,shattered by the sound of finality... and it's oks



had you


displayed adornment as icing upon my wrist

as a true co-hart

 got you.. supportive before giving me your back

while gist of me still pouring

privy of unadulterated conference at one time freely


devotion not openly divvied to any god forsaken… somebody

chosen entity you had to be for such caliber of emotion

yes that’s it….friendship a bottle of uppity wine

left in polished cabinets for only the hand-picked divine which

insistent upon by you was the mold

I tipped

I bended even creased at the edges

eventually proving efforts worth a penny's glow

now...I know


forcing act of closing doors


wavering on what was hoped an antique angle

posed as an ally…no such thing

as plastic as the bangle replacing former shine

hanging present on my arm


had you

once held you…

wish the ultimate  finds your way
