Coming To My Senses... - Poem by Chuck Audette

I'll swear I never felt her
in the soft touch of a clover
brush my legs so sweetly
as I look our field over.

I'll claim I haven't heard her
whispering my name
in this lovely hidden meadow
witness to my shame

I'll say that I can't smell her
as the autumn leaves decay
and know not of the bed
where forever she will lay

the grass is always greener
on a certain patch of ground
but I'll claim I haven't seen her
if her body's ever found...

    At first it seemed like a love poem but I had been forewarned of the 'halloweenish' vibes, lol. Ending seemed like a resounding thump on the head (but I liked it..I liked it, lol) (Report) Reply
