Poetry by Jeff Green


A sad story

It seemed that roses never were enough
She wanted all the world and more beside
She never seemed to notice times were tough
She took his love along just for the ride

He loved her from the moment that they met
They married late in June she dressed in white
His life is now a story of regret
Her life a constant mission to excite

In tabloid photos seen commando style
Spending all their money on her dreams
While wearing minidress and just a smile
Throwing love away on the extremes

His heart was broken by a TV star
For now that’s just the way we find things are.

Author notes

For a friend, a story he asked me to write.
