Food for thought requires a mind with teeth. -The Two Princesses of Bamarre


I dance to the lead
of the harrowing prince
who tickles the mind
with his paltry tricks

Coaxes me on
with never a clue
of all of the things
he's brought me to rue.

Why torture me so?
I'd rather you left
sent back to my God
to live in the cleft.

But how can you leave
what you never have been?
It's all in my mind-
you never could guess.

So notice or drop me
I'll go either way
just kill the suspense
and get on with my day.

The author's comments:
I wrote this piece out of frustration when I was unnoticed by someone I love. It was a good way to laugh at my foolish heart and move on.

I would love to get together with you and discuss poetry. It  is by far my favorite thing to do.
