A coupla short poems…. Its been ages since I’ve written any verse with more than 10 lines… Am I losing my touch? Hope not.
Hidden deviously behind the curtain
Of seemingly innocuous lies
The response uncertain.
Feeble attempts to fill some space
With wordy embellishments and ornate verse
Stuttering along with jangled phrases
Soon I run out of flamboyant words.
The pen goaded on
By my haughty conceited ego.
Verbally impoverished, yet high on ambition
Battling in vain to mask the chagrin.
