Loved and lost

Love was no longer a word,
it was him, me and “the world”
we belong , we do;stay strong , will you ?
the monologues continue,
but love was never lost;
it was us against what not.


You would hope It to remain,
I did.
not him.

You think I am broke ?
Of course I am.
and him.

  1. You’re broke and he is too …
    But we really don’t know …
    ”what was so far??”
    We really wonder…
    ”why do you make us fool?”
    You’re broke and he is too …
    Anyway, we would love to know…
    ”what was so far??”
    Until yesterday, How did you say…
    ‘I love you’ to each other…???
    You’re broke and he is too …
    But we really don’t understand…
    How do you say…
    ‘Love to you’ is no longer a word…
    “it is him, you and “the world”…
    It is surprising…
    We really wonder…How do you say…
    ‘Love to you’ is a word ‘no-longer’…
    When you’re broke and he is too … 😮

  2. I like the idea of your poem being a monologue, perhaps endless, perhaps internal, which is heard by an anonymous other in your reader. I also think this is an excellent poem about love and its demise.

  3. Of course this is Fiction!
    And well written fiction at that.

  4. Nimue, you write one of the most poignant poem I have ever read in just 55 words and it amazed me as you use just such simple words. I think you are GREAT!!! YOU ROCK IT GIRL! Mine is here

  5. Nimue,
