“you again”

Written for:  The Twiglets #168 – “you again”

He fought a battle
to keep away from her
yet, here she was

She tapped on the glass
door. When Beth peered
out, there she was again–
the small, scrappy white
kitten with wide eyes,
and heart-shaped face.

surprise and shock
over takes her countenance
sight of yesterday’s crow

There once was a girl from South Bend
who lived there all her life and then
she wanted a change,
have her life rearranged,
so moves east, where she meets an old boyfriend.

  1. Really like this – the disorder and the disconcerting explanations which shift again and again.


  2. Love “the heart shaped face” peering in the door.
    Great limerick

    That limerick could apply to many people who need a change in life.
