When We Were Friends

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Read this poem with a glass of wine and a fresh log in the fireplace. In a world sadly battered by institutional disloyalty, friendships, both old and new, are vital to the sustenance of life within us. Ponder the poignant memories of a long-lost friend, and ask yourself if the heroes really have vanished from our midst. Even better, think about your current friends in a new light. ~1000 wds. More

Thank you for your interest in my work. Please be helpful and leave a review for me to ponder as I make plans for my next publication, whether the critique be scathing, lukewarm, or improbably glowing. Writing comes from the heart, and my readers' feedback goes straight to my heart and helps shape my future creations.

I'm a grocery store cashier by day, and a poet-animal by night. I also write short fiction, fairy tales, the occasional essay, and a little light erotica. I laugh at myself and cry for the world, and I make a great Egg Florentine for my frequent overnight guests. What's life without love? It's like a shell without the egg inside.

See me on Twitter, @rookee75, or drop me an email. I'll be sure to reply.

Peace & good times to all.

About the Series: Lovers and Friends
Growing up in Ottawa, Canada, and doing some stints in other parts of the country before settling down near Perth, Ontario, I have had the great pleasure of meeting some wonderful and compelling people. Lovers and Friends is testimony to the great power that others have over us in life, and the people that have made the deepest and most lasting impressions on me over the years are presented here. Whether sad and tragic or happy and inspiring, the memories I've recorded are sure to set the reader's mind on to the characters that have enriched and informed them in her own life. Poetry and reality-based stories are included, in short volumes that are often fast-paced and always original. Read and enjoy!

Review by: Malcolm Torres on May 28, 2016 :
To me this poem is a bittersweet tragedy of love lost in a time gone by. I enjoyed the imagery and the language and the pace.
