Day Day Gone Away

Poem By Vallerie Lobell

clock ticking cat licking
itself on the windowsill,
dog gone with a Milk Bone,
underneath the porch,
Jordan munching, pizza crunching,
we like a crispy crust,
Levi counting, tension mounting,
while rounding off his numbers,
me griping, sitting here typing,
still much work to do,
screeching quaking washer breaking,
hope I can find the papers,
rub a dub they're in the tub,
hope they use the soap,
broke and choking can't quit smoking,
hate myself for that,
I'm beat I'm beat my poor feet,
getting too old for this,
tickle grin and tuck them in,
they look so sweet when they're sleeping,
treat treat brand new sheets,
320 thread count Egyptian cotton,
lie and sigh say goodnight,
whisper a little prayer,
fluff fluff prop pillows up,
curl up with a good book,

Comments about Day Day Gone Away

Like the way the rhythm echoes the frenetic pace of everyday life. There is also a tenderness to this poem which makes it so appealing. Justine.

Why do I feel the way I do?

Ever dreamed what Fate held in store?

Down on my knees,
Each day I sink lower,
Help me up, please,

I just started putting poems? on the site,
I check first thing in the morning, last thing at night,
To see if anybody has been touched or made to smile,
Or in my shoes has walked that mile,

Beckon To Me

Beckon to me once more,
And awaken my drowsy heart,
For it will take some tender urgings,
We're too far and too long apart,

Who Is This One?

Who is this one who calls my name?
And always sets my soul aflame,
Who's this one I can't forget?

Small Tribute To Crocodile Man

Australia Zoo must be reeling,
I myself overcome with feeling,
You were so fearless and brave,
All the animals you would save,
