Ex - Poem by Seán O Muiríosa

You called me,
Opened a door
I thought I had sealed
With cement and bricks
To be enclosed forever,
Not so…

Oh, how smart was I!
When I locked you away.
Swallowed the key,
Whiskey helped down it.
Gone forever,
And yet not so…

A poem I did write,
A dedication.
Now that painterly sky
You’ve smashed.
I remember you now.

    Dear Sean,
    A smidgen of all right; short, to the point. While I'm commenting, may I suggest you post more of these abbreviated forms; I did read some of your longer ones and rated a few. In this forum, when a reader is surfing through, it's somewhat time consuming to be wading such vast seas of words. Don't mistake this for criticism, it just takes too long to read them all.
