The site is dedicated to my beautiful friend Jo who is battling breast cancer. The poems help distract her from the fight. I’m asking everyone to say a prayer for Jo. Keep smiling Ms. All rights and privileges reserved 2021
Free verse words this particular girl prefers the words to be all about her. Exclusively hers, I’ve promised to push others away I’m sure they’ll understand Grace and her sensitive charms, she begs and then jumps and in that instant the girl of my dreams fades. I call for her to come back and finish, just echoes I fear. Standing there on the edge there’s one thing left to do she expects me to follow do I really have a choice? If I truly love her I’d lean forward. For God’s sakes Grace this better work. I hope this plan of hers actually has a part for both of us.
There’s probably nothing I wouldn’t do for her after all, I’m free falling chasing her temptations she’s beautiful and ugly in the same voice. I think I see her body twisted and frozen it’s not too late to wake up and stop all this, I keep my focus still and aim for her body.
A hard landing Grace lets out a laugh, “You actually jumped!” Not that I had any other real choice, still, she didn’t see me jumping? I have something to confess, Grace of mine, I’m drawn and addicted to the red hot blooded side. I’m drawn to time and shadows all faithful good reason I’m here on top of you because you make me feel loved in some twisted funny way.
You push me Grace, just to see me fall down, it’s funny to see you laughing that embarrassing snort laugh Grace, you’re so unbecoming, but you’re all I’ve got flaws and all. I apologize for my landing, she prefers to be on top ruined dress and all, she whispers, “You’re taking me shopping later on today.”
The girl and all her good reasons, she jumped just because she wanted to see exactly where I wanted to land. She’s happiest when I’m right by her side holding hands broken wrists and all. This girl of mine promises she’ll love me exclusively until the end, just as long as I promise I’ll keep jumping landing squarely on her.
