Heartache's Milkshakes

On this merry-go-round Of breakups and breakdowns Singing the blues In our ding-a-ling shoes We take our heartache's milkshakes Spiked with itty-bitty pity Before we tangle and wrangle In the rebound playground. 4/16/20 Poem of the Day April 18, 2020

Very clever, Michelle! Love the unexpected pairing of children's imagery with "breakups and breakdowns," "rebound playground" - just to name a couple - with life. Congratulations on your POTD.

The French are in love with being in love as you may see in all the, "rebound playgrounds" of Paris! Well caught and scribed! Aloha! Rico

I was actually thinking "Maureen would really like this' while I was writing it!! So delighted you made it a Fave:)

Lighthearted with a sprinkling of sadness (or is it the other way around?) Clever take on the carousel of life's emotions and the uncertainty of relationships. Loved all your rhymes in this creative write, Michelle.
