“If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.” ~ Mary Pickford
“Waste not fresh tears over old griefs” ~ Euripides
“Love and eggs are best when they are fresh” ~ Russian Proverb

# 3 ~} a poem ~ a little on the dark side~
from a word list ~ spattering; pallid ; masquerades; quench;
veiled; bound; warily; shadow; wolf; mask; betrayed; emotion;
strobe; perfumed; somber~ There was no name attached to this list
and the person stated that they would like to remain anonymous....
Thank you for the list and I hope you like what I did with your words...
powdered and perfumed
she awaited darkness warily
resting on the lonely bench
not a single emotion betrayed
her lost future reflected
only by the shadow of time
the careful spattering
of ruby on pallid cheeks
sunset settled silently
into the nights chilly air
searching for the next fix
to quench his raging thirst
a wolf in banker's mask
drives a Mercedes to her fate
perfect teeth flash a wicked smile
in a single strobe of light
songbirds sing a somber song
as she masquerades innocence
she was found in sweet September
abandoned unmercifully by the smile
broken dreams and promises
veiled by millions of sticky scarlet leaves
released at last from addictions grasp
the runaway heads home.....
