Random Thoughts of Elegant Intrigue

A book of random poetry. A selection of short poems that I have scribbled over the years. These are from a book I call 'the orange book' for obvious reasons. I hope you enjoy them!


7. The Next Poet's Plight

Curse this hopeless romantic,

He sees beauty and joy in your smile.

Knowing all that his helpless inflections produce,

This torturous tale of his weak heart's abuse,

Perhaps one more loop on his lost lover's noose;

In truth he's pathetic,

For he serves no real use,

But to scribble his sadness on pages of white,

To someday be ashes for embers they light,

And his life will give way to the next poet's plight.
