A Common Law Wife

For someone who never married

He said

You write about it often enough

Perhaps I was wrong all those years

She said

His proposals to rebuff

The Disengagement Party

I saw you looking

Over dinner

Your smile discreet

Hers a winner

I realised there

Was something more

When she sashayed

To the dance floor

I knew it then

In revelatory style

It was obvious we’d never

Walk down the ailse

          1. I haven’t mastered timing in music to fit any words…might stick to instrumentals for now, but ya never know 🙂 your words might just pop up again. I am starting a new comic called Kerfuffle maybe I will bring a visual spin on your poetry 🤔
