Mary Havran

Caught Up

Caught up
in lust, in laughs
in bluster and bursts
amid tirades and trysts
All spilling out in lines

Caught up
in oodles and oodles
of Valentines
some lace
some trace
the lines of
a lost lover’s face

Caught up
in drama
and trauma
and some laundry lists
Thank God for twists
that bring a smile
or chuckle

Caught up
at last
through scrolling fast
thank God I learned
to read
with speed

Caught up
I hate to fall
behind, for I
might miss the best
read of them all

Caught up
at last with one
and all
Until I hit
REFRESH

    Like you I make the attempt to read all new listings, but end up falling asleep in my chair, computer still running but the screen is blank from my inactivity!
    I gotta start earlier to complete the task.
    Yours is a ten all around.

    I too often try to read every one of the new poems listed, but as the site grows it becomes all the more daunting a task. I enjoyed your light-hearted take on this.

    I love.... love...
    the breathless pace of this Mary...
    You had me gasping!

    Very nice lighthearted piece, Mary. Sprinklings of your natural wit & astutivity
    very present here & well employed.Tightly cropt structuring places the proverbial cherry on top. Sterling Work.
