This, has GOT to be one of the worst poems I have ever written, and the worst part, is that I have a whole series similar to this. Published? yes, LOL in 2006. I must be the world's biggest Idiot. LOL Here we go...

Nevada Day

Nevada Day is here again,
a tribute to our wedding song,
I married you yesterday.
You should have been there,
there was quite a parade,
with cobwebbed cake and all.
I am your love, I am your love,
I am your tried and true,
I am arisen from the dead,
a little forlorn and blue.
Roses for our wedding day,
petals that vaporize in the sun,
when the morning dew has kissed them,
singing, "Come, my lover, come."
I am five lifetimes older than you,
my flesh is but sinews,
as I gently bend to kiss your brow,
my head falls into my soup;
singing, "Come, my lover, come."
My mind is filled with cobwebs,
and spiders reflecting but hues,
on this our wedding day
let us speak only truths,
singing, "Come, my lover, come."

Did I tell you, or what? I am certain this one has all of you beat when it comes to the world's worst poem! LOL The only saving grace is that Nevada DOES fall on Halloween. LOL Catie :)

    Yep! It's a doozy! Carrie, you seemed to have hit exactly on my own mind set at the time... there are several in this series that do mention the spider and the fly. Yikes! LOL Thanks all, Love to all, Catie :)

    I assure you, I did not intentionally use alliteration. LOL Love and hugs, Catie :)

    Ouch!! Catie!!!!!!!! No, this is not from "my" Catie! Im going through all the psychological coping mechanisms at the same time: grief, denial, anger, depression ... : D !! I think that if you change the "soup" metaphor ... maybe ... LOL! Yes, you're in the finals ... just because being published increases ... intensifies the effectiveness of this "entry" ... I still love your poetry. : )

    Okay, I'm laughing, really laughing. If anyone else but you had said they had written this, I'd have smacked them upside the head and said, stop telling lies. LOL. the soup line? Had me tearing up. But, I did like the line, cobwebbed cake... or the idea of it? Almost tickles a poesy outa me... something gothic, something "something wicked this way comes" ;) This won't make it to the podium of schlop, but it will make an honourable mention, in my books. Proof that writing improves--- I'm still gobsmacked. LOL! LOVE YA
