Soppy Sunday

I've been struggling to get over the death of my wife for the last few months - here's a poem about her.

Sweet Laura Adele
My lover, my woman, my belle
She drank and she farted
And that's why I started
With sweet Laura Adele.

She loved me, she hurt me she did -
She had me so frightened I hid,
For she was a maid
In whom life was displayed
And I'd do whatever she bid.

We had our three years on the cross
All fighting and fucking and floss -
But we stayed together
Through hell and bad weather
Sweet Laura's my life's worst loss.

Sweet Laura Adele
I loved that woman like hell
Her temper, her smile
Her cunning and guile
My sweet Laura Adele.

  1. Read your comment over at the snake pit that is Guido's blog. Totally agreed with your output, so... then I clicked on your name and connected with your blog. And then read these tender things.

    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    Hey, 'apropos of what exactly': This is a very, very beautiful remembrance...worthy of a devoted lover.

    But I feel like I'm an intruder. Really, because I am.

    Do take care of yourself,
