Poetry Thursday " I still love you but....."


This is not what you may think. We were suppose to write about “The thing we find most beautiful in the world without giving away what that thing is.” I think we were suppose use descriptive words to embellish beauty. I decided to have some fun and let you guess what “the thing is”. It's not the most beautiful thing in the world. Personally I think it’s a dead give away…..but tell me what you think!



I still love you but…..

Our Youth has parted
We are no longer content
To ebb together
I used to depend on you
But no more
I used to trust you
But no more
I was in control
But no more
Independent
Of my needs
You now make the decisions
I am at your command
I now pay the way
While you stand
Idly by,
Other times
You’re dormant
I’m ignored
I carry on
Without you
I’m grateful
For our time together
In your youth
Your sleek nature
Attracted me
Now
You’re a liability
Time to
Trade you in
For a new one!

I can no longer depend on my bod as I did when I was younger.

I thought about money at first, or a bike... I dunno. It's not as easy as you say! Or maybe it's Friday and my brain is mush!

I am very impressed with your mugs and your cookies, too!

Car? Hairstyle? Hmmm...that word "ebb" keeps drawing my attention - is that the key? I hope you solve this for us soon! lol

Thanks for guessing everyone....Yes to those who thought it was my CAR, that's the correct answer. Now I ask, where is the new black convertable mini cooper the universe promised me!!!!

Hugs to you all Sherrie
