The Sidewalk (standard:poetry, 151 words)
Author: Red StormAdded: Aug 11 2001Views/Reads: 2033/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
A poor attempt on my behalf at poetry, and probably an insult to real poets, this is an attempt to break into a new realm with a strong message.

I saw you in the coffee shop today, 

the one we often went to; 

I stopped in to say hello, 

though I knew it couldnít be true; 

Her hair was similar to yours, 

but not nearly as sweet; 

I sighed and felt so empty, 

my heart had skipped a beat; 

As I walked along the sidewalk, 

I saw your car go past; 

I ran and waved and called to you, 

but it was moving awfully fast; 

As it turned a block away, 

I saw the driver stare; 

I shook my head and began to weep, 

he didnít really care; 

I couldnít take it anymore, 

I had to run not walk; 

But I laughed out loud when I came upon 

your name written on the street in chalk; 

It was spelled a little different, 

but it meant the same you see; 

Death itself canít come between, 

the bond of you and me.
