Two Thousand Three

Years grow shorter,
faster.
After the age of twenty one
insurance dropped,
lower,
quicker,
even after my fender bender.
On that twenty first day,
twenty two
two thousand two
a year
unsuccessful,
ambition-less,
mostly that is, by the end
I gathered myself,
independence.
I met a girl,
Elizabeth
a Spanish queen
ten years later
she still haunts my dreams.
She liked the ladies,
but I was her guy,
cohabitation,
compromise.
My ghetto 
professional
a ride or die chick.
I loved her for a time
but our time ended to quick.

    Well thankxxx Mr. J. my friend.. always nice to get rave reviews from the sponsor of the contest... just wrote from this torrid affair with my now husband but it was a hot and heavy duty affair for a long long time and gave me lots of creative inspiration...Ron thinks this is super fun... he is a Leo so very egotistical so if the poem centers around him he is all for it..haha.. honeymoon was wonderful.. we've been on one for many years now.. so Italy was phenomenal. ... luv. must see..ciao

    Just wanted to say thanks for the first place tie on your last acrostic contest. I had fun writing that one and am glad you liked it. Hope you don't mind me saying, but I love the way you think, although the few poems I've read could use a bit more editing...No one's perfect, I know, but there's a lot of grammar stuff you could fix. Thanks, again, on the contest.
