In Case of ________

The prompt was to write a poem with the beginning “In Case of ____.” I’ve come up with two in record time, and since today promises to be as busy as ever, a good thing, too.

Thanks for the visit, dear reader. ^_^

In Case of Love, Break Heart

Another four letter word
escaped my lips
but you blanched like never before.
I haven’t heard from you since.

Could it be something I said?

***

In the Case of the Wandering Clue

My motto has always been,
“Don’t let others’ behavior
change who you are,”
which is a good motto.

Unless the other person
relies on your trust
to betray you again
and
again.

Unless the other person
relies on your innocence
to turn the tables
and make you feel that
you are the one with
the evil mind and unfounded
suspicions.

Unless the other person
relies on your refusal to be sneaky
to be sneaky in return,
to hide things in plain sight
(the long blonde hair in the shower;
the emails never read;
the love letters unfound;
the secret bank accounts;
the receipts for restaurants and hotels).

So now, my motto is only a little different:
“Don’t let others’ behavior
change who you are,
unless you have a bad feeling about it.
In that case, trust your feelings.”

  1. Love that we headed the same direction, in the first one, Diana. 🙂 What a great little piece. And the second one is awesome. I started a second one with a Scooby Doo theme, with “the case” being a mystery. Great minds. 😉
