You Passed The Time - Poem by Marilyn Shepperson

We talked together for hours and hours
And put the world to rights
We walked along to my home together
And together, spent the night
When I awoke the following morn
To find that you had gone
Was I surprised, no, not I
I felt relieved; I didn't cry
You had used me
And I had used you
With no loss on either side
It was a fair exchange
Will I try to find you again
I don't think so, for you see
When we met, my fleeting friend
I was drunk and in need of temporary company

    Oh yes, been there done that, still got me into trouble. But absolutely the truth, played out of how society has completely gone against, what we are designed for. A brilliant synopsis of a one night stand! (Report) Reply

    No regrets....if that's how you both look at it, that's OK. Nice write, Marilyn.
