Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors’

8 Sentence Sunday Blog Hop

Changing things up this week.

Poetry’s not really my strong suit, but I get the urge, every once in awhile.

Here’s a short poem I wrote a few months ago:


She was grinning like a Cheshire cat

Feeling gorgeous and wicked

and wishing that

It would never end


This was madness, of course, and too decadent

Lived only for the next interlude

Her feelings, so eloquent

It was bound to end


Flames that burn too brightly are not easy to sustain

The Magic Man was losing interest

and she was in so much pain

It was going to end


She tried a few last-ditch desperation ploys

This only served to make things worse

And now, there would be no more joys

This was the end


Every woman should have a Magic Man in her life, at least once and for however briefly!

  1. Hey Debbie,
    I suck at poetry – writing and interpreting – but I like that this one isn’t lost in overly convoluted language! Mmmm, Magic Men, don’t we love them, and wish they loved us back…

    1. It’s not my strong suit either, but, still fun to write. 🙂 My poems are all pretty simplistic and straightforward. The magic is the euphoria in the beginning. Yes, too bad it doesn’t last. 😛 Thanks for visiting Deb. 🙂

  2. I quite know what you mean about women (and even men) needing that experience at least once in their lifetime! It does help you grow tremendously! Lovely poem!!

  3. Poetry is so subjective…what folks like/don’t like. I liked this. Seems like lots of ladies could relate, and the imagery through your words was delightful!

    1. Nice to meet you, MIllie. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed this one. I know what you mean about poetry. Never thought I was that good at it, but it is fun to write. Thanks for visiting.

  4. Poetry is not really my thing Debbie but you did good. I enjoyed that one, thanks for sharing.


    1. I’m thrilled you like it Elaine, because I never thought I was any good at it. LOL Thank you! 😀
      Those are the cutest little Dalmatians, aren’t they? The Dalmatian is my personal mascot, as a tribute to our late, great, Tasha whom I have proclaimed to be the “World’s Greatest Dalmatian”. ♥ Thanks for visiting and have a good week. 🙂

    1. Wow! I’m thrilled that you think so, Evelyn. 🙂 (I never thought I was any good at poetry writing. LOL). Thanks for visiting.

    1. Aren’t bad boys the greatest/worst? 😉 So glad you enjoyed my poem, Veronica. (It was based on personal experience. Very intense!) Thanks for visiting.

  5. Oh great poem! Lots of emotion, very thought-provoking. I like poems that leave interpretation up to the reader.

    As far as my Magic Man, Rod Stewart explains it best:
    You’re just a dream and as real as you seem
    I ain’t that lucky


    1. It really makes my day that you like the poem Marcia, because I’ve never thought I was any good at writing poetry. It sure is fun to do though! 🙂 Great Rod Stewart quote, from “Some Guys Have All the Luck”. Some guy will be lucky enough to meet you, I’m sure. Thanks for visiting.
