Eternally Waiting

She told me never to send her flowers
For they are pesky things just waiting to die
I told her never to ask me how she looked
In some certain dress for I dare not tell a lie
So we both just sat there thinking
That this life held no further surprise
But then came next morning, lying in our bed,
We became a feast for the flies!

Those endearments we prescribe
To our most cherished ones
Can never hope to describe
Just how much they resemble the lovely sun
But if you wait for the perfect moment
To speak up load and clear
You'll be waiting evermore
On a two way street, built of fear!

    This is a very good poem eventhough I don't like flies. they give me a spooky feeling. In 2010 I had a bad expirence with files that appeared out of nowhere and no matter what I did - they would not go away. They lasted 7 days. I keep my house very clean. Lucilla

    7 days? Sounds like a nightmare! However I do admit the only insect the really make me nervous are bees. I don't know why I hate them so much (their stings don't even hurt that bad) but I can't stand being in the same room with them.

    I'm not sure how true this stay to the Grook form, but it felt right at the time. Compromise is key and so is a sense of adventure and newness. Thanks again :)

    gosh, how horrible. It sounds like you both woke up having been murdered in your sleep with that feast for flies line!! anyway, I get the message and it's a great one.

    Reading that over again I guess that does imply murder... but I was meaning they just died of natural causes. Either way the message would still be the same... glad you liked!
