Not Anymore




This poem was published in the May issue of Expressions Unlimited. Read it here

She ain’t the same anymore
With expectations
Came her discontents
No one knows whom her wrath is for

No, She ain’t the same anymore
With beauty
Came her hauteur
No one knows how many hearts she tore

No, she ain’t the same anymore
With talents
Came her indomitability
No one knows if any flaws she bore

And I asked her if she has changed
I wondered if times had her feigned
And pondered if destiny had this arranged
That those attributes she reigned

She answers as I, on her, did pore
“With sufferings
Came my existence
Oh Yes, I am not the same anymore.”
