Reading What I Wrote

Reading What I Wrote

Feed back about my work has been mixed lately, those that liked it read it aloud; those who didn't like it didn't. Once my poems were read aloud, those that didn't suddenly did. So, I post this advice: read my poems out loud, you might just hear something you didn't know was there...

Scratch Test

The pendant, so beautiful, so bright
Wasn't for me
So I took it to someone
Who I thought could see
The beauty that I saw
But couldn't wear
I thought I was doing good
Until I got there
There wasn't a stamp
To show it was gold
Even though it appeared
And I was told
So a scratch test was employed
The beauty was stolen
The pendant destroyed
