Marilyn Shepperson

(4th September 1949 / Hounslow. Middx)

You passed the time

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

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
