Heartbreak Sally - Poem by louis rams

elvis said it so well-it was heartbreak hotel

i met her at a church rally
i should have guessed when they named her-heartbreak sally
she was the most beautiful one in the choir
of this there was no denying her.

she had the voice of an angel that you might
find in the sky
of this it is no lie.

her hair was jet black-in a ponytail hanging down her back
her eyes were the most beautiful green
greener than i've ever seen.
her skin was lightly tanned
she was much more than i could stand.

i walked up to her as if in a mist
those beautiful lips i wanted to kiss
i stumbled with my words asking her-her name
she said her name was sally-and the
towns people gave her a nickname.

i told her that i did'nt believe in gossip or lies
and if given the chance i would like to try.
so we went out on a few dates-and to me it was just fate.
i fell in love with her head over heels
and now this wound will never heal.

she had said from the start
that i should not give up my heart
for she did not know what she was looking for
and what true love was about.
then she turned and walked out.

leaving me with my heart in my hand
and in loneliness is where i stand.

heartbreak sally is her name
breaking hearts is her game.

    So you met Miss Sally, in your poem I've read!
    I think I dated her handsome brother Ned?
    He sounds the same as the gal you'd dated!
    Sir Ned broke my heart, his looks were over rated!

    So Miss Sally left you, with your heart in hand!
    Ned left me sitting alone, in the football bleacher stands!
    I'll never forget Ned and me at that foot ball rally!
    And I know you will never forget your, ' Heart Breaker, Miss Sally! '

    ***Great Write There Sir Louis! ! ! Ten! ! God Bless, Linda
