Without Sara

Written for:  Creative Bloomings #180
“It’s a Wonderful Poem!”
You are George Bailey. Write a poem of the world without you. Draw on your accomplishments and tell the effect not achieving them had on you or people around you. Tell how your life has touched another in some way. Be boastful. Be self-deprecating. But remove yourself from the equation that solicited the life you have lived.

Humor and laughter
are not up to par
someone seems to be missing

A good friend is hard to find
One less shoulder to lean on
someone seems to be missing

She is an only child, no sister
to laugh or fight with
someone seems to be missing

Men whose sex lives are so-so,
dinners and desserts, lacking
someone seems to be missing

Less heartache for mom and dad
No black sheep, no problem child
someone seems to be missing

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Interesting choices you have made in your description. May I add, a kaleidoscope of poetry is missing, Sara.
