Broken Hearted - JTAP

Our friendship here had only just started
then you left me alone, broken hearted
you're gone but not forgotten
now life it seems so rotten
ever since the sad day you departed.



We miss you, Chan :)



This was my sadder take on the "poet who broke my heart" contest theme.

New Friends - collaboration

I've been getting to know really well
my new friend with so much to tell.
We've got similar work
and we share the same quirk:
Our sore bodies are giving us hell!

by Andrea Dietrich

For her friendship I'm in her debt.
Though I like Soup, it's not home yet.
So with her kind words
I feel like I'm heard
And not a nobody poet

The Lawyer Dude Who Raked Me Over The Coals

My Lawyer said I was his friend
He said "lean toward the floor and bend"

O'boy was I dumb 
He inserted his thumb

and our friendship quickly came to an end

My definition of love

Baby, the day I saw you first
Dunno how my heart had a burst
You soon became my friend
Would friendship last till the end?
Staying without you, oh that’s the worst

High time it was, I’d waited so long
You’d finally proposed to me with a song
Ooohh I could hardly wait
You were already my mate
I wished nothing would now ever go wrong

We usually sat together like a dove
Now was that really true love, love?
Sad songs seemed so boring
Romance in full sure seemed luring
Now was that really true love, love?

Your lovely smile was now my smile
Our relationship was not at all fragile
I started drawing hearts and roses
We took photographs in various poses
Without you, I couldn’t even stand a while

One day that was, I wasn’t feeling very well
You immediately rang the nearest doctor’s bell
He had a really bad news
From all the doctors we took reviews
I was about to die, they said from their shell 

That is the day when I realized
Our love was never actually very precise
My love had different forms
Between us, we had no norms
I sure had a soon to be demise

Relating romantic songs to you, was not true love
Electricity racing at your touch, was not true love
Your presence at my last breath, telling me 
You’ll never leave, kiss me, caress me
Making me smile, while I die, now that’s true love...

A Limerick For The Wulf Man



Dear Jonathan you seem more refined than most Were you appointed spokesperson to fill a post I'm the Canadian equivalent I'm really quite magnifient When it comes to public speaking I can't help but boast Well don't be shy you should blow your own trumpet Need to show these guys we ain't just some puppets Got savy galore Taking over the floor To the applause of many causing smiles by the bucket Now don't get me wrong John, I'm straight as an arrow It's my humble attempt to prove I'm really not shallow My breath is strong As I lead them in song And they keep throwing me money by the barrel So John, this is not one of those “Dear John” letters Trust me, this little limerick is a whole lot better To acknowledge your talents Won't call you a savant Though on Poetry Soup you're image is unfettered Enough is enough, mustn't cause too much laughter For fear you might think it's your body I'm after On my mama's grave It's only friendship I crave Okay I admit writing this while a bit plastered © Jack Ellison 2015

A Limerick For A Friend

I once had a friend like you And I knew her friendship was true We always had so much fun Telling each other everything under the sun Of all our secrets and everything we would do But you know that friend who was like you She did another thing that you like to do She went and told just about every one Of all the things I had ever done I was so surprised of the way she was untrue I bet you didn’t think these things I knew Would ever be found not even a few But you see I know what to look for in a person It’s to know that no one is true with their own emotion So you see everyone tells someone of the things they do Florence McMillian (Flo)

Palm Tree Delight

P   A   L   M      T    R     E      E      D   E   L   I   G   H   T
Written by Catherine Reinke


In your arms, I lay behold ,
gentle winds and sea salt kiss.
Shade full arms from hot sun bold 
coco milk sweet, lovers dish.

My naked skin, sun loves to play
lying under this palm tree day.

Listen  to your  arms wind sound.
No gentler tender song I’ve found.

Tension, grief, sorrow and more,
all left behind seaside’s door.

For here life’s origins, beget and made
ancient past lives, memories to fade.

But here in Tulum, my friendship sea
I find myself, in gentle palm tree.

And so from youth my memory serves
a poem that retold again deserves.

“that only God can make a tree and
…poems are written by fools like me”

Truly then and true today
That Godly art create tree play.

For made he did a vast array
charming comfort of trees I say.
Strong steadfast oaks.
Wispy willows.
Lilac purples for ones pillow.
Cedar pillars ancient.
Rain forest lush,
only the palm tree 
makes me bush.

Round coco breasts filled with milk.
Erect pillar penetrating fronds of silk.


So, in your arms I want to be
naked, contentment, happy and free.
And so end my tree poetic attempt
of my love affair palm tree spent.

Two Leaves

Two girls lived upon Sycamore.
Close as any friends were before.
Despite rainy, spring day
They'd laugh and they'd play
In matching green dresses they wore

Said one to the other in May,
"My dear, you look pretty today
In your beautiful dress
What a grace you possess
Forever will we be this way!"

But as time went by and they grew
The winds of change came blowing through.
Though neither knew why
And they still lived nearby
The times that they shared became few

As dog days of summer lolled by
The ground like their friendship went dry
They both suffered alone
Thinking,  "Now that I've grown
She has long since cast me aside."

At last on one September night
Beneath a pale harvest moon light
When neither expected
They both reconnected
She said,  "My dear,  aren't you a sight!"

"Your dress, oh the color transcends
Though wrinkled and curled at the ends,
And see, mine is the same."
And once more they became
The closest and dearest of friends

But each colder day that went past
Twas shorter the rays the sun cast
Soon their generation
Succumbed from their station, 
But they and their friendship held fast

Together on winter's first freeze
They exhaled the autumn's last breeze.
With their stems intertwined
If you search you can find
Lightly buried in snow: Two Leaves.

Special Friendships in My Life

Every now and then Along comes a new friend With a friendship to last Through times that pass Together until the end Then even a time or two Meeting more makes a few With special times to share The laughter, fun and care Of the life we each go through I’ll cherish this opportunity To have friendships of integrity As I’ve had a few times before And to be sure there’ll be more A true friend to them I’ll always be With this bond of special friends Grace, Deann and Bronwyn Even if life sets us apart We all know in our hearts We’ll be angels together in heaven With Love, Florence McMillian (Flo)
