A Change Of Heart - Poem by Ruth Walters

I threw in
face cream,
slippers,
tops.
I added a few
sexy frocks.
My daddy's picture,
old emotions,
fears, anxieties,
hearts devotions.
I threw in letters
I had written,
and little things
that had me smitten
and then I sat
upon the lot
and tried to get the
thing to lock.
I should have
known,
I should have
guessed,
I'd put in
one too many
vests,
so I unpacked,
sat down with glee
and had a soothing
cup of tea.

    This is funny and terrific. Loved the growing list of contents. A good cuppa is so often the solution to a tight situation, pun most definitely intended. (Report) Reply
