A Blues Poem - Poem by Amy Jones

Seems all my days of late
Are spent in doubt
Regrettin’ what I done
Wonderin’ how to get out

Y’see a while ago
I made a big mistake
Now I’m wishing it’s a dream
Please Lord, let me wake

This awful thing I done
Was while my beau was gone
I started to forget him
And had myself some fun

I met this hot distraction
Things started getting’ hot
Before I cleared my head
This man has got me caught

So I made my bed with him
He rubbed me right and how
Until my beau got home
What I gonna tell him now?

I told my beau the truth
He dumped me and fast
So I stayed with the hottie
But the love didn’t last

I was missing my beau
The worse things got
I tried to get him back
But my beau he told me off

Seems all my days of late
Are spent in doubt
Regrettin’ what I done
Wonderin’ how to get out.

    I think this is a great title for your poem.
    I loved your poem as I'm a Rhythm and Rhyme poet
    myself. I've got to say I really enjoyed reading your words.
    I hope to come back and read again.

    I do believe you may be the next Roberta Cray.
    Blues, undoubtedly from the soul.
