and post notes and photos about your poem like JAN ALLISON.
On bended knee, you gently take my hand;
asking me softly, will I be your wife.
My answer, I hope you will understand
but I am not able to share your life.
I cannot accept your engagement band -
the rejection stabs your heart like a knife
We’re just acting as part of a school play…
perhaps I’ll marry you for real one day!
Real counted as 1 syllable as per soup counter not 2 as per how many syllables
