THE PAIN OF REJECTION

 

THE PAIN OF REJECTION 

 

Her door now locked,

her blind still closed,

he walked away down broad stone steps,

a scarf of thorns around his neck.

    So you stayed - to write us more gems! Good write Michael.
    I couldn't do all I wanted. I could not sing - me throat packed up with a bug. Oh no, I'm recovering! I shall sing again soon. arrggghh!

    Ah so tomorrow a vocal thrust from O - does tomorrow ever come?

    That’s a lot of feeling thrust into those few stanzas.
    Well done.

      The pain of rejection is awful at the time but one always has to move on and discard that scarf of thorns.
