I write what I feel…

Fait Accompli

15 Comments

.

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!
