Ain'T Love Great When He Has Bad Dreams? (Humor) - Poem by elysabeth faslund

I burned your toothbrush
Slept by myself
Last night.
Slept like an angel.
Slept like a queen.

And, damned delighted
You had bad dreams.

    Absolutely amazing, short and powerful - brilliant writing. You captured your feelings in so little words and yet we can understand fully what you mean - you have wonderful talent.

    Best wishes,

    Given that you could have binned the toothbrush, I appreciate the ritualistic and account squaring character of this. Nippy little number and appropriately sharp round the edges! Now, about sticking the pins in..... xx jim (Report) Reply

    Goodness gracious elysabeth, were you the one that helped out a few years back? ? ? Sleeping alone can be grand, most of the time..... This is right on target, all things considered...You were less violent than I...I threw the Gucci loafers, six pairs in the sound at Todd's Point was right down the street from house on Shore Rd....heehee......marci.xo (Report) Reply
