Poem Discovered On Cave Wall - Poem by Brian Mayo

I made the wheel
You rolled your eyes

I saw the truth
You called it lies

I asked for love
You made demands

I nurtured fire
You burned your hands.

    So, they finally found my poem! ! ! !

    Yeah, I suppose the wheel was never used after I died. Yes, my mate was a bitch! She got (part) of what she deserved. Just a part.

    Thanks for sharing it here. To MyPoemList it goes.

    Bri Cromagnon.

    I have encountered you here for the first time. Where the hell have you been? That is very colourful and thoughtful stuff. I am betting you write a fine limerick. I'll go looking. I've already met Kelly Kurt and we are good-naturedly battling it out. (Of course he is afraid of me because of my vastly superior intellect.) I like my poems to rhyme but for this one you get a ten (sucking up to you a bit on first encounter) Old Dad (Wes Vogler) By the way in the battle of wits, because of my age I get a fifteen handicap.

    Loss, love, and maybe a bit of regret somewhere in four parts of two lines and a single sentence.. Technically a brilliant poem Brian.. Thanks for sharing.. (Report) Reply

    SO, I guess this stuff has been going on for a long time now, eh? :) Where's the loss? The hands? I can see there's much love in that cave.... (Report) Reply

    I considered this ending for a long time: I captured fire, but burned my hands

    Is it better? from a woman's perspective? Changes the meaning quite a bit...

    Very cute Brian! But, burning hands are not sex linked..: -) (Report) Reply
