Is This All?

 

Magpie Tales

 

 

Is this what is left?

Is this what remains? 

Turn away turn away

Try not to look

Because

Yes

This is what's left

This is all

There is

  1. I love the use of line breaks, and the last three lines were totally savored.

    sing it, Peggy Lee :)

    I can see why you would think so


    Is that all there is
    Is that all there is
    If that's all there is my friend
    Then let's keep dancing
    Bring out the booze
    And have a ball
    If that's all there is

  13. Thank you all so very much - I really am totally blown away as I don't see myself as being a poet. I used to write when I was younger and now only very occasionally do I dare to.

    So many words of encouragement here - thank you again for reading, liking and for your generosity.
