Engaging Thoughts

i don't care
to see morning wink
from beneath the gray film
that leaves the day
it's easier 
to pretend
that night
has yet to end.

night's black 
is the only veil
yet to cover my eyes
and i'm tired 
of playing wife
to the unworthy,
tired of hiding
behind the thickness
of gray moods.

it's raining again
scribbling night's color
upon my cheeks,
kissing my lips
with day's aftertaste,
yet i pretend to smile
when love looks my way.

in all reality
i'm too old to care,
too old to dream of...

night still holds me
in the negatives,
this day's still undeveloped
yet my mind
isn't anymore,
and my last thought
before anything can blush
is to be walked 
slowly down the isle
in satin and bows
to be the bride
i never was
as you lift 
the veil of white
and kiss me
one last time
and pretend
to miss me.

    Sandy, Other than just plain having you around, the fact that you also write thoughts like these so skillfully and from the heart is a special bonus!! Fav

    This ennui you describe so effectively is something I have experienced. Now in my older years it pays more frequent visits. Poetry helps add a tinge of color.

    Love your ending great work, love the part about lifting the veil of white, it's lines take me to this sad soul and i feel for her this happens between so many couples it's not funny. I want to reach out and say it's alright and this is the true mastery of this work, to make the reader feel what the poet is wishing to express the sorrow of the women that are writing about bravo lady. You should feel very proud of this work. cheri

    Somewhat sad write. You are not getting your due lady....night's gifts.....where have they gone? Are you being taken too much for granted? No, you are not too old to reality you still hope of clinging on to your dream. Why not? :) // paul

    OH MY, you have done it. You have written another amazing poem, Sandy. And it is so full of that emotion which I know is real. I sometimes feel this way too. Life does that to us and circumstances. I hope the sun comes out and your next poem will be a happy one, but I like this dark one MUCHO
