they say that the lover’s always last to know
and somehow I never got the news
I was too busy writing love songs
to notice you were singing the blues

    Once again you have gifted us with a perfect poem at a perfect length! These 4 lines tell an entire story and you used the perfect amount of words to tell it. Love it!

    • Thank you, as Shakespeare has Polonius say in Hamlet “since brevity is the soul of wit, And tediousness the limbs and outward flourishes, I will be brief”, although not in the case of this reply 😀
