Best Cyndi Macmillan Poems

+ Fav Poet


A bloom of abomination grows in the bed

of yearning that we planted long, long ago,

our relationship, once tender buds, lays dead

and my inner soul I now struggle to sow.

Sweet affection has been replaced by tart scorn,

the passion I cherish has released its last flame,

taste dried tears kept in the heart that you’ve torn 

hear my weak attempt to give this loss a name.

While you bamboozle, bury a guileless truth,

I will simply mute each contemptible lie,

the deceit of an old fool reclaiming youth

loots from a rich past and a future decries.

You spread your seed in the dirt you penetrate,

then lift my clean sheets, too late, much too late. 

*A modern sonnet

    I'd say you are a modern Shakespeare and he would be proud to stand beside you. A strong message Cydi, rouses emotion in the reader which you do so well. Luv, Lizzie

    I have seen the deceipt of old fools trying to regain thier youth. Younger wives faster cars, attempts to reshape old bodies, clothing of much younger men. What is the obsession our society has with youth??? I like your poem very much, well done.
