A Demoralizing Good-Bye

 To poetry she said good-bye
Now I live with a Broken Heart
Her words could make me laugh or cry
Or tear my inner soul apart

In a devastating Free Verse
To poetry she said good-bye
My inkless quill rides in a hearse
As an uninspired quill must die

Skat's words: an image to the eye
Emotions, feelings, come to life
To poetry she said goodbye
A requiem; bagpipes and fife

Read the words from her loving heart
Believing there's no reason why
An Angel of Poetic Art  
To poetry she said good-bye  

Dedicated to     Skat A     Respectfully submitted...Flipper

    Phillip, I'm not posting, my motivation died last year. Goodbye is my last poem (for the moment). Flipper, I'm admiring you with smiles. Thank you. I'm not posting, but I'm willing to write with poets. Collaborations." I come and go. Anyways, I'm staying in the shadows. But, today I came to the newest poem list, something I hardly do these days.. I'm so glad I did. I found your poem. Hugs... Skat
