friday night alone

didn’t everyone

use to call friday night

the official date night?


it’s now friday night

i’m at a mall


i see others

sitting and texting


i feel their hurt after

their texting  ends

they stand up

and walk slowly down the mall


i guess whoever they texted

had plans

other plans

that would not include them


it has always been this way

that is . . .

lonely people

looking for someone

to pass the hours with

during the weekends

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
