I'm not feeling myself tonight. Or this whole week, for that matter.

Mike

-candy hearts and broken teeth-
fragment candy hearts.
dress all torn, astray.
pictures burned, regret.
happy valentine's day.

wax on fingertips.
"there's no judge in judgment,
except scrambled."
candle lit, put out.
"no mercy in merci,"
she rambled.

smoke smears on the pane.
chocolate foil trash.
tooth chips, broken plate.
mascara pain -- eye lash.

dusty sugarpill hearts.
phone snapped from the wall.
KISS ME; LOVE YA; I DO,
one side.
other, nothing at all.

Mike-

Well, for a guy
that's not feeling
quite 'up to snuff' ...
you sure do write
some terrific stuff !

Wow, this is sad!

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?

Marge, thanks for that cute couplet. (double couplet?)

serenity,
I wish you no heart attacks!

WhtDove,
It's sad, yes; but sort of a detached, distanced sad. Which probably makes it even sadder...

Bsquirrel, This is the other side of what I've been through. Either way, very sad and so hard to go through. -SEA
