Poem: Quit

Quit

Her smile burns in my mind
Another reminder
Out of reach one last time
I quit
Too many setbacks, and failures sting
Always a reason or excuse or complication
So that if everyone has a someone
Clearly I am neither
Not everyone
Nor even someone
Just alone
Resigned

I met Kev through a telephone date. I'm convinced I'd be a nun right now if I hadn't. (I was 32 at the time).

P.S. How's Boo?

32 came and went a long time ago for me.

Boo is his usually self - running the show here!
