I wrote this poem - friends...discombobulated - over a year ago when I first started working seriously on the manuscript for my third book - currently titled Trust is a Big Word - though this may change. For those of you not up to date with my next story it is about a friendship which begins online, across Twitter, as a bit of harmless flirtation and which ends up crossing the line and developing into an illicit affair, the main character is married. It is a story about why so many people stay in relationships and make do, thinking they are not worth more, getting so comfortable in their relationship they lose their own identity and how one casual comment can turn their world upside down, make life worth living again. It is a story of love and lust, of friendship and more and of how accepting who you are can create a whole new world where you can live, and breathe and laugh...it's going to be an incredible story. And in the meantime this poem catches some of the essence of the book...hope you enjoy it.

I always believed you would be the one

From the wannabe excitement to the

Fat belly diets and silly football jokes

Besties through the good and the bad

But then something changed

Like ships on the wild sea, discombobulated

The clouds leaked unwanted watching

Into what became a useless, wrong lazy love

From gay spring happiness to utter desperate failure

Our love from virgin pure

To a disgusting addiction, intoxication

Now unusable, a one-sided single passion it seemed

Ears listened no more, lips moved wordless

Emerging, sounds solidifying on the ice air

Likes and fans, watching moving Twitter blue

Our bed a cake of disappointment

Bitter taste on our tongues,

Like a telling off from our mums

So we turned away from each other

To never return, to never say I could love you again.

  Thank you for reading and I hope to share some of my writing with you again soon. Until next time, Happy Reading, Happy Writing, Happy You. Soulla xxx PS: My poetry collection Sunshine after Rain is available as an e-book download on Amazon...why not take a look here? Mwah xxx
