Day twenty-one

a history


i wrote my first poem over ten years ago

as a suggestion from a friend


had a crush

mostly because she apparently

for some reason

liked me first


still don’t know what i did to deserve that


it was forbidden though

my ex’s best friend

the unwritten rule of high school

thou shall not date thy friend’s ex

(no matter how cute you think they are)


the bible should probably get to work on that one

bff 3:15

with fifty hail marys

whatever those are

maybe reserve a new level of hell for such sinners


my confession today would probably last a week

forgive me father

for i have sinned

this is my first confession


i hope you have some free time

    I like the free flow thought process in your poem. I also like the mea culpa in the poem, which always fits with confession. I think this would make a good start in a series, since it leaves us wanting to hear the whole confession! 🙂

    Much appreciated. I already planned for tomorrow’s poem to be a small addition to this piece, but that is an excellent suggestion! I’ll see what I can do in the next few days.
