Sweet September


Your timing,
was undeniable.
That day in sweet September.
In the shadow of night fall...
You gave- I took-
I took what you gave,
but knew what it meant...
We brought nothing to each other
We took nothing, but a portion
of each other...
We gave nothing to seal a future hope...
It was not love...
I took you,
and put you away....
Like a collectible,
afraid to break-
to destroy with one slip-
and you didn't mind -not at all...
Safe from a glimmer
of hope-
Safe from denying,
any reason to seek-
Any more from what I gave...
And also took of you...
September slipped into
decades, buried -pains-
longing for once upon a time...
When life was simple...And you were mine...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
