    Reunited: a two sided poem

    I saw her today.
    I saw him today.

    It’s been a while.
    It seems like centuries.

    She looked okay.
    I couldn’t stop staring.

    We talked for a while.
    He looked so fine.

    She kept looking at me and I wondered why.
    He wouldn’t look me in the eye and I wondered why.

    She asked me how I was and I told her about my new girlfriend.
    He asked me if I had a boyfriend, and I told him I didn’t.

    I pretended like I cared.
    I pretended like I didn’t care.

    She looked different than she used to.
    He looked better than ever.

    I gave her a friendly hug good-bye.
    We held each other one more time.

    And then I went out to the lake.
    And then I went home and cried.

    This technique, and theme, has been written on by some of the greats and yours is just simply put, excellent.... A beautifully crafted anti-diatribe with some very clever sad ironies throughout... well done, a very good write...

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
