A Demoralizing Good-Bye

To poetry she said good-bye Now I live with a Broken Heart Her words could make me laugh or cry Or tear my inner soul apart In a devastating Free Verse To poetry she said good-bye My inkless quill rides in a hearse As an uninspired quill must die Skat's words: an image to the eye Emotions, feelings, come to life To poetry she said goodbye A requiem; bagpipes and fife Read the words from her loving heart Believing there's no reason why An Angel of Poetic Art To poetry she said good-bye Dedicated to Skat A Respectfully submitted...Flipper

Phillip, I'm not posting, my motivation died last year. Goodbye is my last poem (for the moment). Flipper, I'm admiring you with smiles. Thank you. I'm not posting, but I'm willing to write with poets. Collaborations." I come and go. Anyways, I'm staying in the shadows. But, today I came to the newest poem list, something I hardly do these days.. I'm so glad I did. I found your poem. Hugs... Skat
