Hopeless Romantic (Blogophilia 37.5)



Hopeless romantic
Says this is the one.
Wrapped around her heart
Just like the last one.
The one who
Took her daughter's virtue.

Do they come
With an owner’s manual?
No matter.
This is truly the one.
Just like the calm,
Cool face of the river
Asked her for a kiss.*

  5. I certainly remember a couple times when I needed that "owners manual" - never did find it, so had to write my own

    1. I try. It still amazes me that people repeat the same process expecting different results.

  10. The definition of insanity.... doing the same thing over & over and expecting a different result! It's hard to watch loved ones make mistakes. Excellent & poignant poem!
