The Lapse

Phone rings
Rubber screams
Loud CRASH
Metal screeches
One lapse
Three lives

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx
