A Picture Worth 1000 Words©1998 Genea Parker

I didn’t hear the times
You said you were working late
I didn’t hear the excuses why
Dinner would have to wait.

The business trips you took
With her at your side
Left me home alone
Feeling empty inside.

This picture spoke to my heart
And I was forced to listen
Seeing you with her, told me
What I’ve been missing.

A picture worth 1000 words
I know now it’s true
This picture says it all to me
It says I’ve lost you.

milt,

your comment covers both ends of a spectrum...lol...i guess the poem did that for u. thanks for the comment.

Balladeer,

I appreciate ur comment. As many of my poems, this started out with a different ending in mind, but then it just wrote itself.
