   ~            ~                   ~                   ~                  ~
It was as if her world was spinning,
She tried to get hold of herself,
As she fell into  a nearby couch,
She slips into the past in anguish;
~She smiles as He caresses her hand,
They met in high school on beach sand,
And since then,They`ve been good lovers,
Good memories flow in like spring,
Theirs was ordained with a circled ring,
Until that car crash ,that brought  great pain,
Johnny`s life was cut short abruptly,
~She woke up,still dazed with sadness,
She belched and staggered off to the shelf
to pour more~and~slip into oblivion.
