Love Lost - Grass appears greener


Trying out something different here. A rhyming poem no less. Which I never do. Does it work?

Search Part – Love Lost


Take your chances

Out there alone

A world of indifference

Chill you to the bone.


Grass appears greener

Where the sun always shines

Wait ‘til the night falls

Where the outlook is not sublime.


I’m a trick of the light

A mirage deceiving sight

You could bring me home to roost

If you only you could

Discover the truth

No language, no words

A sign language mismatch

Merely a clash of swords

Leaving you spinning

Out there alone

Loud echoes to your cries

Chill you to the bone.


You came to find me

I’d given up and gone

‘You don’t know what you’ve got’

You had called as a con.


Now it’s you who suffers most

A penniless wanderer

Forever counting the cost.


I seek a mere smile

Out there alone

But the years have passed

And worn me to the bone

Worn me out

(Post Valentines Days-2016)

I wanted to experiment with a traditional rhyming poem

And the concept of a lyric based song

Mixed with my own style of poem.

An experiment, if you will.

Did it work?

Last week I uploaded the audio/video story, Fabulous Flaw Finding Phil, which you can watch HERE

Suggestions for future posts always appreciated.

Take care
Until next time
