Love’s Demise

Written for:  Poetic Asides 2019 April PAD Challenge – Day 30!
Write a Stop and/or Don’t Stop poem.

You are crushing my heart,
I never thought we’d part–’til now.
We may have had our rows
No reason to break vows we pledged
long ago in college.
Remember water’s edge, sunset?
You straightened my barrette.
We loved each other yet, you’ve stopped.

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.

    Oh wow…a heart-grabber…I LOVE the line about a straightened barrette for some reason, personal touch, I guess 🙂
