I write what I feel…

Fait Accompli



There’s no starting over
What’s done is done
What’s said is said
I had no confidence left


Eroded away ‘til I was gone
Just an empty shell
A shadow of myself
A sacrifice in the name of ‘love’


A joker’s prank so off it stank
Reborn in my middle age
To regain what had been lost
But we knew that time was past

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

  1. This seemed tp perch between regret and bitterness, but I may be reading it wrong.


  2. Oh Denise, how important to put things behind and move on. To live in the present moment is paramount.!!


  3. Live for today… and forget the past… today is tomorrows yesterday.


  4. So true that words once spoken are out there, never to be reclaimed, however hurtful, and however much we may regret them.


  5. ah but you do live forward you know…in new understanding…refilling what once was a shell…


  6. As in all things of life, lessons learned are not without consequence.
    Thank you for getting me to think this morning, my coffee and your blog, jump-started my day.. Have a great one Denise!
