The Uneducated O.A.P

A Lost Love?

What have you done to me?

That undercover shudder

The explosion of wetness

Those whore red nails

They were digging into your back, not his

You're in my head

But not in my bed

An invisible one sided romance

How can that be from just a glance?

You walked past the door at the fitting of the dress

Everything's in order, now my minds a mess

You're my hearts flame

And I don't even know your name

Do I break the heart of my lover

to build another?

We've not even kissed

do you know I exist?

What do I do?

What would you do?

    I'd wake up in a sweat again, and again, and again, and again.

      I do that, I. Thought in my case it was the male menopause, at 72!

    • orchidee

      Some one(s) having fun there?!

      • The Uneducated O.A.P

        Think I'm coming to the end on MPS Steve, don't understand them fancy words, I ain't no poet, just do what I do.

        A very intriguing mix of anger, jealousy and confusion. Well done.

        Love those final questions on "An invisible one sided romance" It can happen as I recall with just one glance that someone gets into your head - - time is what douses the flame in the end Bill .

          That fantasy land is always there, maybe we will see it for real one day.
