When You Look Back: Romantic Blogging Free Verse Poem

November 2, 2018

It’s always dangerous
to look back to the past,
especially when it’s not yours.

No matter how good
your present is,
the chance to find pain
is real.

Don’t gaze too long
into what is not yours.
Don’t think too deeply
about what you don’t understand.
Just keep your own happiness
and your present peace,
and rejoice.

My Final Sonnet To Her: Romantic Blogging Sonnet

January 30, 2017

I used to write/
romantic sonnets to her./
In my verse she’d delight/
(though she was slightly older).

We’d share our sad tales/
of our romances gone awry,/
and her I’d regale/
and flirt: “Could I be your guy?”

She then said there was someone/
and the last time we met,/
she expressed hopes for eventual love/
as I spun her in pirouette.

Today the news came; there will be no more dancing!/
She’s taken his name! I’ll cease my romancing!

*(I don’t want her to swoon
on her honeymoon.)
