FORGIVE AND FORGET

How can I ever forgive and forget
that evening in my ancestral home,
as past the menagerie we roamed.
Your luscious lips of vermillion
broke my heart in a trillion
pieces as mockingbirds deluded
in the  twilight garden secluded
by frangipani which infuse the
air by the moonlit pellucid ripples.
Masking the sound of my sniffles.

That's so nice to hear Geoffrey. My muse has been lazy of late and comments like this are a lovely confidence boost.

Good one, Jean, kudos on your placement. You arranged the ten words in perfect order describing a less than perfect event to a T.

Thank you Susan. My blue eyed island man turned out to be yet another lying, cheating son of a ..... I could write a book at this stage, which would be funny if it were not so sad. Perhaps a few Limericks instead.

Far from having a menagerie, my ancestral home Vijay. More like the old woman who lived in a shoe.
