It seems thereís always someone
Ready and willing to dish the dirt
It doesnít matter if lie or truth
Nor does it matter who is hurt

Have you heard the latest about me?
Itís been circulating like crazy
The truth has been lost somewhere
So the story is pretty hazy

I've heard that Iím to be wed
The groomís name I didnít detect
But he is just a minor player
In a tale of two lives soon wrecked

I was in jail, at one time, I heard
For a crime of mounting passion
Another story is that I am
A woman of no style or fashion

Prying eyes and loosened tongues
Have decided why I am a recluse
Gargoyle chin and witchís wart
And a mind dull and obtuse

Itís said my poetry is written
By a woman who lives down the hall
That every line and every word
Isnít really mine at all

Iím supposed to be a siren
Stealing men from my best chum
I wound him around my pinkie
Now she just calls me Ďscumí

What is the truth I ask you?
Why do you need to know?
Think twice before you speak
Or pick up that stone to throw

Never have I seen my own thoughts on gossip and busybodies so clearly expressed.  I am your greatest fan sweet lady.

Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.

I heard it on Monday, and I laughed awhile.
I heard it on Tuesday, I managed a smile.
I heard it on Wednesday, my patience was tried.
I heard it on Thursday, and I hurt inside.
Now I need to know the depths of your mind.
I need you to tell me you love me.
And we're doing fine!

-Breathe, Depeche Mode

I'm tired, so I might have screwed up a line, but that's what yr poem reminds me of. Which is a good thing!


These smiling eyes are just a mirror for the sun.

Just had to say thank you, Sharon for a much needed laugh tonight!  Enjoyed this!

I've heard so many things said about me
both in front and behind me
and I've also heard that
none of that is true...


great poem, Sharon...

AMEN...err..thank you? err...Shh..yesterday they said you were well.. best not to talk about that right NOW.


Loved this, Lady. It holds a message that I hope a lot of people who have already read it will get kicked in the rear or somewhere else painful with it. ~~sigh~~ I could hope, eh?

I will not bend to the cowardice of a silent judgement.
