The Test of Time

The love you bore me is no longer there

Anguish, abandonment, I can’t bear

I thought of it as resilient withstanding time, and space

What I didn’t know

It would fail the test for grace

It wasn’t the forever kind

The one wish I had in mind

Despair hits me from behind

Where did I go wrong

Still trying to understand

Is it me, or is it you

(Sheen, June 2021)

Identical

I don’t want to see you

The smile is not there

Replaced with worry lines

You look defeated

With shoulders sagging at times

I don’t want to see you

My identical image in the mirror

It’s best I forget you

Or I’ll deem myself a failure

(Sheen-March2018)

Mystery

Life is a mystery from cradle to grave

What lies ahead you never know

Life in the womb, then life outside

Step by step it unfolds you know

Some on the right path, some on the wrong

Life follows an unknown ebb, and flow

Getting through it is a struggle alright

But life is a gift on us bestow

(Sheen-November2017)

Superficial

With superficial charm he did me woo

Fell for it without any clue

What struck me I never knew

My eyes opened after the issue

To save myself I couldn’t undo

Fashionable

When do you want me to come

What do you want me to wear

My clothes are no longer fashionable

As I have grown older, I no longer care

What to wear is not my priority 

I’m comfortable in my old wear

They are not prickly, not so new

But soft against my skin I never knew

The colors are faded, and light on the eyes

And what I wear not everyone likes

(Sheen-October2017)
