A moment ago when your eyes met mine,
just seconds it was, it seemed longer though
it was all in this look; it wasn’t fine.
Now I have seen you, your mind I do know.

Of course it is true that all was just show,
maybe it was passion, maybe it was wine?
I should have stayed up, and not looked below
a moment ago, when your eyes met mine.

It was a moment not very divine.
How could our morals have sunk and so low!
We should not have crossed this very thin line,
just seconds it was, it seemed longer though.

We went with the lust, we went with the flow.
About what we did, we should not much whine.
We both wanted love and we did so.
It was all in this look; it wasn’t fine.

Had there been time for me just to resign
-and I was in a hurry, apropos-,
maybe I would not have called you a swine.
Now I have seen you, your mind I do know.

As we were stuck in this lame status quo,
hoping your motives were not that malign,
I progressed to undress and did it real slow.
How was I to know that you strained your spine
a moment ago…

  1. Great ending.

  2. Fabulous Ina! I’ve got your book on order but is ‘out of stock’ at UK site at moment, which is good news for you! They will send it to me when it’s back in stock.

    • Hi David,

      I am very grateful that you ordered a copy of Veritas, thank you very much!

      Out of stock already, I wonder how many they had in the first place 🙂 but the publisher prints on demand, so it should not be a problem. It just takes some extra time. Again, thank you very much! 🙂

  3. A great poem Ina (one that resonates? – No comment!)

    I love your surprise endings!!:):)

    Love and hugs xx

    • Hi Christine,

      thank you very much, it is a bit of a strange poem I think lol. I wanted to try this form and this is the result. 🙂 Maybe the way to write a poem is to start with the idea, not with the form…

      Love and hugs xxx

  4. LOL! How our age betrays us! What an ending!
