Sensible Approach


THREE WORD WEDNESDAY
asks us to use the three blue words

SENSIBLE APPROACH

It would show enormous self control,
(Although it would be far from droll),
If I could take a razor blade,
(Proving myself quite unafraid),
And I could give my flesh a gash,
(Not considering it rash)!
*
But it would be a waste of time!
(I would rather write a rhyme.)

MISSING

You took pride-of-place in every picture.
You were the subject of my every scene.
Now, though I scrabble through the box of pieces,
I cannot find a trace of where you've been.
And what is the point of life without a focus;
A photograph without a centre-point?
The emptiness will stretch into the future
For everything in life is out of joint.
