A Broken Relationship


Dripping deceit
Your eyes don't even waiver
How can I see your smile
when it is veiled behind such a dark secret?
Flowers wither in the vase
I curse the champagne and chocolate
What did you wear, say, DO?
No, I don't want to know.
My mind is in a state of denial.
Have you grown allergic to my cologne?
Do I talk too much/too little?
Does my breath smell?
Am I such a failure as a lover
that you would choose to take recourse in . . .
My mind is in a state of denial.
Denial . . .Denial . . .Denial

Did the door just close?
Are you coming back?
I should be the one doing the leaving
Damn it . . .
I can't even seem to get that right!

WONDERFUL! I just LOVE your style and you are so humorous, even about sad things!
How about you popping into my site and seeing if you like my work?
There are not many of us around and we should stick together!
