Loves me, loves me not

My heart was split, and a flower appeared” – Solomon

my broken heart cries within

silent regrets undoing time

our past in a dream sublime.

Forget-Me-Nots in my tonic and gin

its magical elixir clings to my lips.

embraced emotions weep in my eyes

love, intoxicating, grows with each sip

only sweet hellos and no goodbyes

    1. Thank you so much, Cheryl. ❤️ It was 30 degrees F this morning so we celebrated with a fire in the fireplace and lots of hot coffee. 🤗


  1. This is incredibly fine, I LOVE it. And it’s great to be back here after NaNoWriMo used up my writing hours in November 🙂

    1. Thank you and sure, I use the Opti theme. I like it because it is very functional and has a lot to offer. It organizes images and comments nicely. 😉 Thanks for noticing and asking.


      1. Oh, thank you so much, Eugenia! 🙂 Your blog has a unique and very attractive “atmosphere”…if that makes sense (it’s a compliment, anyway!).

  4. The first line is so painful….draws the reader in. This line is my favorite
    “Forget-Me-Nots in my tonic and gin” —- ah yes. Sometimes it is the response to swallow/drink away the pain. And then the juxtapositioning of that sweet flower with the words in its name…well done!

  5. This take me back 8 years ago when I was a chairperson of a book club and every weekend we would have poetry sessions. Magical. Thanks for the piece of cake
