Dear Reader

Dear diary
My name Jane
Oh the irony
I have this pain
In my fingers
And in my toes
I have tried with him
Lord knows

Dear journal
I slit my wrists
My army colonel
Who took the piss
On the day
He took his life
He was my husband
I was his wife

Dear bible
I'm in the sky
No more survival
No wonder why
There may be mourners
But I must confess
I strangeled my colonel
With great success

Dear paper
I'm left alone
My guilty consciounce
I must postpone
I killed the colonel
My husband too
My time in hell
Long overdue

Dear Satan
Please can I leave
And try and straighten
I was naive
My skin can't burn
Any more
The lesson I've learnt
My soul is sore

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
