She has a familiar walk
...you've never seen
She knows all things
...you can't know
She repeats things
...you heard but once
She wears things
...you wore out
She aches for love
...you smile for a dime
She clings to her teddy
...you shot the bear
She doesn't rise early
...you're always late
She reads Edgar’s Raven
...you find birds a bore
She plots your demise
...while you sleep it off
She shades the bird's cage
...placing pennies on your eyes


...just bein' Bluesy

You run much deeper than I do, I'm just an old song writer that loves to write lyrics.

However, the beautiful ambiguity of this piece creates images that could outfit the reader's imagination with the comfort of recognition.

Very much enjoyed!

true love never looks after it's own interests

Bluesy this poem is downright creepy! I don't think of creepy when I think of your writing. So, for me, this is kinda new and different. Of course you did it very well. The pennies on the eyes gives me the willies.

Not to worry, Miss Lori. I'll not make it a habit. I like for you to see all sides, and you're keen to notice things as they are.

Thank you so much!
