Drink Driving


You broke my heart,
And made me cry,
My love is like a dart,
Not hitting bullseye,
It broke my heart,
To see you die,
Like an out of control cart,
Steering away for my heart,
Don’t leave me like this,
With no kiss,
Time ticks by,
I still cry,
I’ve made new friends now,
Not leaving one show without a bow,
That empty spot,
In the school dinner line,
The empty pot,
No more wine,
Remember don’t drink,
And drive!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

My friends mum asked me to write a poem about drink driving as her daughter was in the passenger seat when her boyfriend crashed, because he was drunk. She was in a coma for 38 weeks in total before she woke up and later that day died in hospital as someone stopped her oxygen flow pipe.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
