23 Fitzroy Road , Poison In Here Ear

Poem by DAVID GERARDINO

HE wispers poison in her ears.

SOUNDS like a ghost she thinks,

or a love thats been twisted, and

bent,

HE gives her flowers, and a bottle

of red wine, and a moment of hope,


just a moment, only a moment,


then he stumbles out the door.


HE wispers poison in her ears......


then brakes free.........

    Hi David, This sounds a little creepy, not like any love affair (haha) . Very unique, and original. Your use of imagery is good and very expressive. Take care.(Report)Reply

    David, I like this, its style is very different. The poisonous lies to keep one on a string. Love certainly does twist or gets twisted. Neat poem :) Kim(Report)Reply

    I like this David. It certainly expresses the cruelty that we are capable of and to dash expectation (as you seem to be saying) is one of the cruelest acts.

    I was very much impressed by this work and particularly the last line'

    Many regards,
