April Fool

My poems have never rhymed. Even when I first started writing poetry during my depressed teenage angst years. I wrote this poem in my early 20’s. Near the end of my first torrid love affair after catching my love cheating on me. What better day to share it.

I thought when somebody told me he loved me

I'd feel like the Fourth of July.

So why was it only

April the First

When I finally heard it from you?

April Fool is included in my one and only poetry ebook. Every now and then, I add new poems in a free update to Gossamer: A Poetry Collection (2016).

What do you think?
