This little gem I found in my in-box this morning. Thank you, Ms. Jones.
by Kassandra Jones
I kept going to the light my soul had seen
When we were together
Laughing like children
I told you it was a gift
Nothing ever sounded the same
Moments of other happiness
Now fill my days
And I’ve given up finally
The fight that there will be true love for me
And if the worse thing that can happen is that I will cry sometimes
Then I am okay with that
You regret it so
I tried to tell you
But like with everything you touch
You turned it into fear
And even with him I make it work
He has everything any woman would want
And my heart still never felt that joy
It made when it ran down the street w you
But like everything I touch
It turns to gold
Those were the best days of your life
Now you are sad drowning in your work, the stale now changed life.
You will die at 65
And the last frame won’t be her
It will be one of me and you dancing on the beach.
