Claudelle DeLuna

**Back Street Alleys**



She looked for love on back street alleys,

where no roses grow, she found the glow,

of a full dumpster, inundated with knotted tears,

and partially written letters, to the man she once loved....




  • Fay Slimm

    So atmospheric the music backing sad words - a lament indeed when back streets are searched for love.


    HOLA CLAUDELLE ~ GRACIAS por Musica y Poema muy muy tristes. In my eyes all ladies are beautiful & very precious. It seems so incongruous that some have to *Search for LOVE in back street alleys ~ where no roses grow !* I (BRIAN) have partially written (Love) Letters to one I loved (in the past) and never posted them ! So I can empathise with the closing words of your SAD & LONELY POEM !
