My Poetry

You were once the man upon the horse

Riding through the middle of my life

Reaching out the lasso

Saving me from my death.


I thought love was forever

A marriage vow implanted

Unknown to my pure thoughts

That another could turn your head.


I see now many months later

You were burnt beyond belief

The taste of sour wine embedded

The look of hurt within your eyes.


Now you wonder what I am doing

Who my thoughts are of at night

You ask if there’s a place for me

Could you make amends.


Pain that runneth deep

Trust that has been broken

Layers broke and rusty bricks

No words can heal the hurt..


Written by,

Terry Shepherd
