That’s what you said.

You said I was broken.

How do you suppose that happened?

Lie to me again.

  1. Of all the poetry you’ve written, this one ranks as my favorite for the profound message, the sparse words, the strength therein and the honest zinger ending. This you must submit somewhere to be read by an even larger audience.


    1. You are so sweet Audrey. Thank you! I’ve been putting more of my work out there, submitting it here & there. But it’s not easy. So many places consider a personal blog posting to have been “published” and they won’t accept previously published material.:(
      I’ve got a couple of things out there that I have not posted here for just that reason and it’s just killing me that I can’t share it!
      Thank you for always being so kind and supportive. ❤ ❤


      1. You are wise to hold some of your writing back from here in an effort to get it published elsewhere. I’ve encountered the same issue in having posted something on my blog, thus making it ineligible for publication elsewhere. I’ve learned. But sometimes I forget.
