memories of heartbreak and a dear friend...
She had a funny
way of describing
her love for him
as some kind of
cosmic shipwreck,
with all hands
scattered on deck,
bleeding and
pirate-pillaged;
much like a
cut rate
Jimmy Buffet
pseudo-romantic
ballad.
I reminded myself
to love and share
a leaning shoulder
and smile
instead of emptiness
and hunger for her.
