Please note:  Although this poem was inspired by reality, it is EMBELLISHED and NOT meant to be taken seriously.  I'm sure we all are inspired to write by real events from time to time but like a novelist we also add/embellish our work sometimes to make it more interesting.  This poem is one of those:  i.e. based on truth but definitely embellished and not meant to incriminate.  However, the general feelings expressed here are real.

Why do I torture myself this way? I read your letters every day. I think of joyful days when we were friends but now my sorrow never ends. I miss your music and your funny smile and wish you’d come back for a while. I miss your crazy lingo when you were my crazy “Dingo”. But a black bird stole you from me and you left me here on my knees. I call your name but you just ignore. Please come back into my arms once more. Hear my sincere words and kiss my red lips. Put your strong hands on my hips. Hold me close in my sweetest dreams. Forget all your crazy schemes. Can’t you see how I love you? Come collect your just dues.

I always read the other comments first, and the first three comments "nailed it."I will try to think of something clever for this poem deserves a bit more praise, Carole. Your adjectives make this poem dance! They give her the exact amount of bite she needs. Joyful, sincere, crazy...Well done indeed!
