Where The Sun Doesn't Shine
and post notes and photos about your poem like Edward Ibeh.
Once soul mates,
the world was their oyster;
together, they built paradise
teeming with life.
Their life was the stuff of dreams.
They were a happy twosome
who couldn't look more compatible.
They savored cozy domesticity.
Their enviable love grew
strong and tall with time.
They planned to dream for eternity
A bright star that hung in their sky
had their names written on it
How drastic the reversal of fortune.
Somehow, they lost that spark they once had.
Their happiness eroded.
Like a lucky gambler
who goes from rolling sevens
to suddenly blowing most of his winnings,
they lost the beautiful dream they created.
Fate couldn't be more unkind.
The flowers in their garden wilted.
Their tasty slice of heaven now tastes bitter.
The star that shone so bright.
above them couldn't be more distant now.
They let paradise slip through their fingers.
Their romance which used to flow
like a gentle stream has iced over.
Now they've found themselves
where the sun doesn't shine.
