A Lonely Web
by Melvina Germain
I died a thousand deaths,
lived in beauty, my youthful days.
Found the gray hag of midnight blues,
longed to be there in that quiet place,
dining at God's table with you.
This earth is full of old surprises,
hanging skin and sagging breasts.
Jowls and rattling teeth, wobbly
legs, stiff and sore, no knocks of
interest at my door.
Heads turned so long ago,
now invisible to most, I stand alone.
Father time, painted a gruesome picture.
as I stand down from my youthful throne.
I stand a lonesome trickster,
A mind that howls after midnight,
with eyes taking in the scenes.
A love affair with my inner thoughts,
making love within my dreams.
