Once Upon a Time on a Bench


I’ve tangled my pointer with my hair 
While looking up to gaze on the smiling sun
Over hundred times,
On a bench, 
Waiting for your presence

I’ve become boredom conqueror 
And unearthed those buried stones under 
After I’ve had enough of my android,
On a bench, 
You’re still not here

I’ve sent the sun home
And kissed the clouds goodbye
I’ve lost my spirit 
And sighed out my stupidity,
Off that bench,
You’re a disappointment

    I really enjoyed this........a story told in such few words, and one that we all have probably experienced at some time or another. Nicely done!

    your bench is the symbol of disappointment. Mine was the symbol of lost love. It's really fun to see all these poems and how the different poets represent their themes. I enjoyed reading yours.

    Your mind really does flow in unexpected ways when you write. And a beautiful day feels less so when others bring you down... hope all is well on your side of the screen, and best of luck on the competition!
