Quite A Little Wonder

After years of drifting around
It was time to close the show down
No need to be a pretender
We all have our little surrender

To give hope for tomorrow
Could we build on our sorrow?
Should I care about the outcome?
I`ll share with you,its my rule of thumb

There`s a thin line here I know
Love like a dove,or act like a crow
Take me to the limit,I know you can
Push it..squeeze it..see if Im a man

Maybe,if I was just your lover
How much would there be to discover?
So many things you`ve given me to ponder
Kept in my minds envelope,quite a little wonder

    Loved it all! Very much liked the dove/crow concept. :) I love crows...more than doves actually. But that's me. Anyhow, very nice one. Always, Laura

    Arlid, hi! hi! hi! I'm a good pretender... I think I'm the kind of person who don't put much thought into the outcomes of situations.. I think that is why I am who I am.. and as for your other half.. I like the little juice she gave you to ponder on,, it's up to them how you want to spike the wonder.. like you poem,,ta ta ta..pd ((not feeling myself lately))

    I like your style Arild. Thanks for reading and commenting. Yes, I wear earrings also but somehow the nose rings don't do it for me. in your picture you very closely resemble my late son. He would have been celebrating his birthday today. Congratulations on your featured poem. Love, Joyce
