WHERE HAVE I SEEN HER BEFORE?

WHERE HAVE I SEEN HER BEFORE?

(My thanks to Holly at HOUSE OF HEART…for her thumbnail image)

I know few women may care,

To have their assets compared…

Must walk carefully

Or we may see

A firing squad form right over there!

Her picture drives me crazy,

From long ago not so hazy…

A woman I knew

Had those eyes too,

Until I was let go (amazing!).

In truth I had finished my job,

Six months’ in, to “discombob”…

But the heart is tough

When you think that’s enough,

It’ll fight on thinking it’s robbed.

And so it was in a way,

The engagement broke in a year, anyway…

She gave me two weeks’

Notice for keeps,

But some think she earlier played.

In four months my ex. had married,

Four years of sorrow I carried…

The ring she gave back–

Impossible tracked–

My wife is glad it’s buried!

My former was a cascading blonde,

And you thought redheads I was fond…

She rode a horse,

Those movements of course

Drove me above and beyond.

I’m sorry if I gave a start,

That image is burned in my heart…

 Now her profile

Still brings a smile,

Not many deep memories art!

    Oh my gosh! Is this really an old girlfriend of yours Jonathan? She’s very cute. You could delete it from your facebook if you like. This is a lovely and nostalgic poem, thank you for referencing my avatar…it’s fun! 🙂 ❤

        well, we can’t win them all, and it sounds to me like you came out pretty well when all is said and done!
