Out of their chests~#DecemberWriting #love #poetry #themagicshop

Time to face the pain and accept the facts

An ignored passion does not grow back

Circumstances changed their game

A couple still, just not the same

He lost the spark, she lost the flutter

Friendly strangers left with each other

Pleasant moments they shared before

Fading echoes of something more

With this story they know the end

Speak the truth and don’t pretend

Moving forward was for their best

Still these truths suck life right from their chests

I was ready to give up on finding my soul mate

Throwing in the towel after just one too many bad dates

I cringed at Hairy Mary who needed a shave

Had tea with Naughty Audrey who wouldn’t behave

The theatre cleared out on a date with Smelly Nellie

Breakfast with Messy Betsy had me covered in Jelly

Kissy Missie was fun but I needed to breathe

Everything Pretend Gwen said I just never believed

I’m still trying to cheer-up from lunch with Sad Maddie

Criticism over coffee was my chat with Crabby Abby

A bachelor’s way was looking to be my new life’s norm

Then I spotted a woman who was laughing out in a rain storm

We started to talk as the rain got us wet

I felt that she was the most amazing woman I had met

Her attitude towards life was so uplifting and fun

She also saw charm in me that she found in no one

I’m thankful for past dates that all went horribly wrong

They made me wait for true love who was Silly Lily all along
