Lost the Glow

To the tune of “Like a Rolling Stone”.  Apologies to Dylan fans!

Many moons ago

you were all aglow.

Blanked the ones below.

You were in the know –

weren’t you?

 

Friends pled,

“watch out”, they said.

“We’ve got the dread

for what lies ahead

awaiting you.”

 

You teased and ridiculed

all the people

that you fooled.

Now you don’t

shine so bright;

now you hide

out of sight

scared of what they’ll think

of you.

 

How does it feel?

How does it feel?

You’ve lost your way,

a discarded stray

and your glow’s turned grey.

 

I doubt Bob Dylan would be impressed! On the up side I had a lot of fun writing it and managed to include yesterday’s word prompt grey (British spelling)  🙂

The Dancing Spree

Pick a spot, set her free – on her dancing spree.   A sudden gust; scattered stardust. Off she flies forever – unknown endeavour.   My mother-in-law’s ashes were scattered on the beach today, […]

My First Love

You’re my first love, first fall out. My anchor – never any doubt.   You’re my critic; advisor. My top fan – older and wiser.   You’re my blanket; soft and warm. My shelter – away from the storm.   You’re my safe house; protection. My compass – for lost direction.   You’re my conscience; living […]

World Book Day

  Oh Joy, it’s World Book Day! Fun to see them fancy dressed. Characters from books of course and hand-made is for the best!   We’ve been planning for a month and he’s read the complete book. Delighted with the outcome – got the ideal novel look.   Hope the others make an effort; sick […]
