Ramona Thompson


A Swift Abortion


Crying teardrops endless
On my guitar
Romeo came along
Whispered sweet in my ear
We had a love story
So unlike any other
So wrapped up
Enchanted and spellbound
When Romeo ask his Juliet to be naughty
I smiled so shyly and said yes

Never believed
My Romeo could ask me
To lie so cruely
Now I sit here
Writing this warning song so bitterly
Never ever say yes
To hiding away a popstar lover's most damaging secret
Cos all it's good for is a broken heart

Squeaky clean
Not so very much
He's not
After that one wonderful weekend
Just before we fell apart
Just before my lovebug's bite
Turned deadly mean
Punished what could have been
For daring to threaten his rising star
So much important to him to be number 1
A plus on the scene

I did it
Same day that he ask
Forever I will live to regret it
Wish I could
But I can't
Bury the pain of it
So stabbing
Just like a knife
Through the music of my heart
Busted this time
Beyond all repair

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
