That Was Her - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

She had blue questionmarks
coming out of her blue eyes.
Her lips were too blue for kissing
and a blue-tongue lizard was her pet.
As for me, I ended up singing the blues.

    Nice! I offer this one suggestion: Halloween approaches. A costumed lizard, blue in color, could do the trick. L (Report) Reply

    this is a piece of poetry that i spent ten minutes reading herbert only because i wanted to get it right, i read three things into it and if i was wrong it doesn't matter
    i felt a touch of sadness and unrequited rejection and a sense of loss and
    a great deal of love whatever the outcome

    Warm regards allan
