Jane Meyer Poems
<font color=darkviolet>Another one for Cassandra.
spent playing the guitar,
reading a book,
talking on the phone,
surfing the web,
swimming in a pool,
laughing with friends,
taking a shower,
planting a tree,
working my hardest,
performing for an audience,
thinking about life,
writing my thoughts.
My life has had a great many “15 minutes, ”
yet I can still pick out the worst.
spent listening to your rasping breaths,
feeling your heartbeat weaken, ...
<font color=darkviolet>Don’t mistake me for a brat,
For I’m certainly not that.
But I do like people to pay attention,
When I have something I’d like to mention.
I don’t mind when I have to shout,
At the ones that I don’t care about.
But when the people I love don’t listen,
It can cause a tear to glisten.
