You know you could go to bed earlier?”

And do what?  Sleep?  I don’t have the time.”

With how often you your mouth’s open and stretching? You’d have more time than you think”

Nah.  All that’s because you bore me.”

Smoke (an acrostic poem)

So many wires going here and there

More than what is needed right now, but you want to be ready for the future

Oh I know it can get confusing, but that’s okay

Keep track of everything right up here in my big old brain

Except I forgot and now the smoke alarm is going off. Damn!

*a semi-fictitious tale. There was no smoke in my case. lol

Plain (an acrostic poem)

Putting her unadorned baggy white dress on

Leaving so much to the imagination that it hurt to even try to fantasize anything about her

And piling her hair up under her uninspiring hat

It gave the world the perfect vanilla picture she craved them to know

Nobody would expect the wildness contained therein until it was too late

Lent (an acrostic conversation)

Look, I know I have a bunch of sins, so sue me!”

Everyone sins. Why are yours so different?”

No one I know puts dill pickles on pizza like I do.”

That’s a damnable offense. Repent you heathen, or enjoy hell!”

Pills (an acrostic conversation)

Pretty hard to swallow what you are trying to feed me.”

I know, but it’s good for you, so please?”

Leave me alone.  I don’t wanna.” 

Look, I even put it in this smoothie.”

So now you think I’m a dog?”

Salty (an acrostic poem)

Swearing up a blue streak was her pressure relief mechanism

And she needed all the relief she could get tonight

Little did she know her ex was going to be there with his super-model girlfriend

That’s when she knew she had to do something to assert dominance

Yet loosening the tops to the seasoning shakers were probably not the route to go

Crabby (an acrostic poem)

Couldn’t care less what you think Miss Know It All!

Rarely does something come out of your mouth that’s worth a damn

And right now isn’t one of those moments

Being the refined person, such that I am, I won’t allow myself to stoop to your level

Because to do so would admit that you put me in a foul temper, but we both know that’s not the case

You just run along now and go to Hell, you hear?

Mile (an acrostic poem)

Image: i.imgflip.com/x46xj.jpg

Making that walk down the hallway, her feet heavier with each step

If she had more time to think, more time to make sure, more time to know if this was right

She was now having doubts, yet here she was wearing white and wondering if she had an “I do” in her.

Everyone was waiting, but looking down that aisle felt like she was walking her last…

Smooth (an acrostic poem)

Sometimes she didn’t know they were recording the conversation

Might have been a problem for a lot of people, but not for her

Others would hem and haw and stutter, but she was concise and clear

Others would say things they didn’t mean or didn’t want others to hear, she was honest and

That’s why she was happy the whole thing went to court

Here they would what she said in her own voice, and that voice said, “No.”
