Poem: Free Verse – “Thick, Thin, and Tequila” #amwriting #poetry


Polyvore on Pinterest

———

You balance out my dance, 

And it isn’t per-chance, 

You’re the same women who tipped, 

Me back with a few drinks ten-years-ago.
Who talked to me in words much deeper

Much clearer than my confused soul.

You understood the words of my heart

Despite tequila, despite red red wine,

Maybe, even despite the way I was acting —

Dragged down by life’s issues, 

You always knew what I was hiding

Those secrets destroying me,

Never stayed hidden long. 

You laughed and you smiled

Gave me hugs and even —

A shot of apple whiskey, 

Or possibly a jello shooter.

In younger years we may have —

Only been egging each other on to drink, 

But we also learned to say to each other, 

Friend, I think you’ve had enough.” 

We’ve learned to have good times, 

Drinking nothing but tea, 

Or a single glass of our favourite wine. 

You’re always happy to see me, 

And I miss being closer to all of you. 

In these years you encourage me, 

For a few hours, for an early night —

To for a moment forget

The problems which haunt me,

You forget yours too —

We have fun, play some games

You tell me to —

“Celebrate with us and let life’s troubles —

Go up in the fire’s smoke. 

Forget your health, your other woes, 

Know us better, we know you best,” 

Years do not contest, the same kind faces, 

Always there, from nights at the bar, 

To tamer houses parties because —

Responsibilities they matter more now. 

You balance out my dance,

My friends, my connections

To myself, the real world, 

The way things could be, would be —

The way things are, 

You balance out my dance, 

In ways tequila never stood a chance, 

 My history, my friends, 

My ones I have chosen, as you’ve chosen me,

To walk with me as adults, 

Maybe someday in our old-age? 

For now we play games and laughter rings, 

It’s contagious and sets me free.

Cheers my soul, 

That unknowingly

You would lift my burdens from me

Give me pause and make me think. 

(The adult sipping on her Zinfandel, 

To make the tequila flavour go away.)

My friends, confidents,

Who accept me for me,

You set me free and give me faith, 

That I can face the bad guys, 

Live another day;

Just to see you all laugh uproarasly.

To see a fire glow and gleam, 

Beneath the silver moon,

And a game of flippy-cup by fires light. 

Some things never change. 

Friends playing, and in all seriousness saying:

“Everyone needs a night or two, 

To let go and live freely, 

And not overthink.” 

Your bestfriends give you liberty

Your best friends hold on to you

Through thick, thin, and tequila.

Poem: Gone, Gone, Gone.


When the love ran out, we sputtered a bit, breaking up and getting together again just enough that no one could keep score.

And when I finally made the cut that tore, you told me ‘whatever you want’ and I know I hurt you then.

But that was months ago and now you are alright. It seemed fine to me when I was trying to escape, but it hurts a bit because I know you have escaped me too.

And memories assault, you held my hand over every table before the food was served.

You kept me close when we were out at the bar and I couldn’t keep my hands off you.

You found that I was loveable despite being unwell, even when we couldn’t go out as much as you would have liked.

You held me close and we watched TV until it was early morning.

I went to sleep before you, and you went out clubbing, giving up the bed, so you wouldn’t wake me.

You loved me for my family and texted me everyday.

I could tell you everything, and somehow everything was okay,

But those little things, that were terribly big to me, they just weren’t enough to make a match right,

I miss you now, I didn’t before. Now I see, I am alone. Before, I always had you. But I go on because I do, because fairy tales don’t come true.

In real life their are truths we must see, morals and values that match, and a blending of families.

I miss us. But this is life, I move on. There is always a price to be paid and I’ve paid it. Now, I’m outta here. Gone.

Poem: Not the End 


I’ve never hurt so bad,

Without you, Without you.

Couldn’t keep all the love we had,

I’m sad I hurt you.

We had the best of times,

Together, not forever.

And I’ve never hurt so bad,

Couldn’t handle the love we had.

I’m sad to say that,

We just didn’t last to the end.

And times calling me to move on,

I may never have that love again,

Without you, without you.

You accepted me in way,

That no other man did.

I may spend my days alone,

But I’ll never forget the good,

The fire that burned, 

But then it rained with truth.

So, farewell to you my friend,

May we meet again,

May this be not the end.
