Chagrin

cause and effect

you said

*

you lied

*

reason ran away,

belief was buried

in a grave

unmarked,

lost

tiny footsteps

tap, tap, tap,

walked through the walls

of my small armoury

and

I

surrendered

I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

  1. Many has been the time I chose to harden my heart forever, but then I hear those small innocent footsteps and as much as I wish not to, I too will open my heart. Fortunatly, my armoury is not yet an inpenatrable fortress.

  2. Very creative and imaginative way of expressing yourself. A very sad poem as well. Betrayal, no matter how it comes, is always a painful experience.

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
