Moving on

Her legs were knobbly boles

jammed into shabby slippers,

her swollen feet two massive moles

shuffling along on flappy flippers.

She’d lost her lover long ago –

he’d found a svelte and pretty thing –

she wondered if this girl would know

she’d soon be tethered to his ring.

Soon she too would feel the rips

appearing in her self esteem

and when she offered him her lips

he’d vanish into someone else’s dream.

  1. The ABAB rhyme scheme feels breezy and effortless which compliments the resigned nature of the speaker on being abandoned by her lover. You put me in her shoes. Emotional and melancholy. Extremely well crafted.
