Poem "Once Burned"

Postby MargueriteMariaRivas » Thu Jun 11, 2009 10:14 pm

Thank you, Louis P. Burns, for welcoming me here and for hosting my poetry forum on Sensitize. With the exception of my own poetry blog on a social networking site, I am new at being an e-poet, so I beg your indulgence, all. MMR.

Once Burned

I have flair
wild hair
neck bare.

What? Swear!
No love
not now.

Maybe never.
Thanks, lover.

No joke
a smoke
with some bloke.

A drink
he will think
“How easy.”

But queasy
he'll be to see
how empty.

Watch, gold
heart, billfold
soon rolled.

Often told
I am cold

(Yes now
not then
but how?)

Just scarred,
real scared
heart seared.

No, just a joke!
Who's now broke?
Who, me?

I have flair:
wild hair,
come here.

Hand here,
leg bare
yeah, there.

Do I care?
No, swear.
