Brief Compilation of Short Poems – Part V

Brief Compilation of Short Poems – Part V

Poem – Slowly Taper Off

Please cut back on the drinking.

It has changed your way of thinking.

You have changed completely.

It has changed the essence of you.

The spirits are affecting your spirit,

detrimentally too.

Please cut back on the drinking.

If you don’t, your ship might soon be sinking.

It won’t affect just you.

It will affect your family too.

So, drink a little less today

than you did yesterday.

Drink a little less tomorrow

than you do today.

Slowly taper off

and most importantly,

pray, pray, pray.

I write this to offer


to the alcoholic.

The tendency to drink

is not necessarily bucolic.

City, country.

Country, city.

It occurs in all walks of life.

One commonality though

is that

it can severely damage

the relationship between man and wife.

Poem – Dollars, Dollars, Dollars

Poem – Dollars, Dollars, Dollars

Dollars, Dollars, Dollars


mostly just to pay the rent.

Dollars, Dollars, Dollars

earned can not buy

what I truly yearn


Your love.

Please bring it back.

I’ll be waiting

for you

at the door.

Poem - Memories

Poem - Memories

The memories of you are starting to fade.

I close my eyes and think about you intentionally.

The memories of you are starting to fade.

I have to conjure them up.

I am just here dreaming,

while you are out there scheming?

What will you do next?

You have already done so much to make me vexed.

But you like to keep me on my toes,

so and so, this drama grows.

The memories of you are starting to fade.

Did the good memories outweigh the bad?

Did the happy times outweigh the sad?

I try to think of it that way.

The memories of you are starting to fade.

I have other things to do.

I have to go on living.

It is not all about you.
