More Funny Peculiar Than Funny Ha Ha She decides To Her Self Poem by Dónall Dempsey


'Love in vain? '
she whispers to herself.

Laughs.

A pun
at a time

like this.

Smiles.

Winces
...at the pain.

Cuts
...her wrists.

Cuts.

Her.

Wrists.

    The pain in this cuts deeply, so deeply, that she was able to smile 'at a time like this.' Awesome writing, depth to the soul. (Report) Reply
