LOVE ANGER DEATH AND GUILT

LOVE ANGER DEATH AND GUILT 

Blog was A young girl who was 
Still at school
Everyone loved Blog, she
Was nobody’s fool,
In fact her peers regarded as really cool.
She was determined to learn,
Her mom an alcoholic and her dad
Hooked on drugs,
She was determined to take a stern
Turn in her life, her brother also in jail,
She tried harder and harder, she was 
She not going to fail!
She finished school and graduated with
Excellent grades for college,
By now an eighteen year old,
With a surplus of knowledge!
She was popular from the start,
And met a wonderful young man 
Brad, who was the love of her life,
Cupid sent an arrow like a dart,
Straight through Blog’s heart!
Within months they became a 
Well known item, 
They were always together 
From Christmas day when 
They met, until the
Following  Autumn.
But something was troubling Blog, 
Brad seemed to be too friendly 
With Beverly,
At every
Spare moment that they got,
They were together, 
He seemed to be infatuated with
Her a lot!
However,
Brad and Blog were still together 
And spoke of becoming engaged,
But one day Blog saw Brad kiss Bev
On the cheek,
At this she became totally outraged!
She had failed an exam, and now this,
What a week!
Blog was going to speak to
Brad that same night,
At her house on a bench outside,
She knew the moon would be bright.
But something dreadful happened
That wasn’t right, 
Blog felt an omen, a bad vibe came 
Over her, the phone rang, it was Beverly
She just cried and cried,
On his way to Blog, Brad collided
With another car and instantly died!
Blog was devastated, so shocked
Yet not a tear.
She felt guilty that she thought bad
Of Brad,
After his funeral having a cup of tea
With Beverly, Blog understood
Beverly was Brads cousin,
She wanted to get up and flee,
so embarrassed was she,
Now she cried tear after tear!	
Brad and I held a secret from you,
Said Bev, we were planning a second 
Year anniversary party for you two!
But it wasn’t to be,
Bev and Blog looked up at a starry sky,
And Saw a star twinkle, Brad would wink
With his right eye, 
Which secretly between 
Blog and Brad, meant I love you,
Her wink was bad, as she sent a message 
Back to Brad - I love you too!

So many emotions tangle around these words. Not knowing the truth causes more issues than knowing the truth. This is beautiful and tender, sad too. Congratulations Jennifer, on Poem of the Day. ~ Brandy

Thank you so much Tom - I only saw that I had got POTD after we had closed our office and came to our home. I must say, I was really chuffed! See not only Greek, this was one of my English Dad's favorite sayings. Poetry hugs, Jenny.

Thank-you Okonkwo, I like to write of real life love, which isn't smooth sailing all the time! My husband and I were sweethearts in our early twenties, drifted apart and then met up again in our forties, both divorced with a son each, and got married 6 months later. The wisest thing I have ever done! Thank-you for a lovely comment, Poetry hugs, Jennifer
