    A middle- of the- road poem. Doesn't deserve its so-called ranking in top 500 poems. (Report)Reply

    This is one of my favourites, it inspired me write a poem about love lost. The formatting will be bad but I have pasted it bellow. It was published circa 1997. I think Adrian's was much better and more positive!

    Guilt


    Stop smiling at me out of your photograph
    I know you are crying


    Your toothbrush sits in a little holder
    It will not be used again


    The food you bought for our evening is still in the fridge
    I shall eat it alone


    Stop laughing at me out of your photograph
    I know you are crying


    We made love in an understanding silence
    Now I make toast


    You would never give me the chance to be myself
    Now I am me


    I hope that you will be happy somewhere
    Not with me


    She giggled at me out of her picture
    I tore it up
