Sob Story

Seconds to minutes
Minutes to hours
Hours to days on end.

Days to weeks
Weeks to years
Years to heal and mend.

Watch them fly
Right on by
You’ve used up all your firsts.

Chances lost
Lost and stolen
Stolen hurts the worst.

Try to catch
Catch your breath
Breath escapes you now.

Just give up
Exit stage left
No need to take a bow.

Let it go
Forgive  Forget.
Crawl back into your shell.

Time heals all
Evens the score
We all have a sob story to tell.

We all have a sob story to sell.

We all have a sob story
                   so tell.

  10. This is the first time I’ve visited but my time spent well – the poem keeps taking my breath, yet turning me enough to inspire a telling.

  11. Very very impressed…..especially the last to words ‘so tell.’ Love the simplest things best.

    Thanks for the comment. I will always love the rain more than the sun…just some dark days of late.

  12. You’ve used up all your firsts.

    yeah except then there are always the ones (point at me) who will only re-run their sob stories like old television from before we were even born, but i did love that line, along with the rest of this one, comes back around frequently in my recitations -l.m.

  13. I’ve just found your site and I can relate to your poetry and love your rhytm and the strenght I see shining through!
