Best Poem of Barry Conway

Life Is A Purse.

LIFE IS A PURSE.


LIFE IS A PURSE.

YOU HOLD THIS PURSE,
FILLED WITH COINS.
AS YOU LIVE THIS LIFE,
YOU TAKE OUT A COIN,
ONE BY ONE,
AND TOSS THEM INTO,
THE VAST OCEAN OF LIFE.

WITH EACH COIN,
WITH EACH TOSS,
YOU WATCH IT SINK,
LOST FOREVER,
IN THE DEEPEST DEPTHS.
YOU HAVE THE MEMORY,
BUT YOU WILL NEVER HAVE,
THE COIN AGAIN.

AS YOUR PURSE LESSENS,
EACH COIN,
BECOMES MORE PRECIOUS,
UNTIL THE PURSE EMPTIES,
AND IT TOO,
IS TOSSED INTO THE OCEAN.

Read the full of Life Is A Purse.

A Catered Affair

A CATERED AFFAIR

HE OPENED
WITH A CLOSING LINE
‘IT'S OVER'

HER EYES IMPLORED HIM
TO TAKE BACK
THE POISON OF HIS WORDS
