Poetry by Jeff Green


The way things were

She was all that I needed
each smile made my day worth while
I’d see her face any place I went.

Perfect eyes to lose a mind in
a nose I needed to kiss each day
and always those lips, that smile.

I don’t need her any more,
can’t feel anything, just get up
go to work, eat and sleep.

How I hate her, how could she do that
I wish I was dead

instead of her.
