Please tell me again…

Posted: May 29, 2016 in Poetry



             Please, tell me; tell me about it again

She looked at me, a tear in her myopic eye

And she told me about The Catcher In The Rye

I lay sick on her lap, in a field of harvested grain

         She sang also of those mansions in the sky

Where no soul has any reason to cry 

I know i won’t make it there, but i let her sing

She sings like an angel, she calms my pain

Later that night I cried, haunted by the pain

And i forgot all the stories, but i knew she’d tell me again

She’d tell me, only if I make it through the night….
