October 7th is Random Acts of Poetry Day

To celebrate Random Acts of Poetry Day, I am going to randomly post some of my poetry on market bulletin boards, on tables at coffee shops, on park benches, etc. Are you doing something fun and special for Random Acts of Poetry Day? If so, please share your ideas in remarks.

27 SECONDS

By Kimberly Westrope

A lot can happen in 27 seconds.

A slow tear starts

in the corner of my heart,

wordlessly ripping me apart.

A life wholly changed,

memories rearranged,

leaving me a little deranged.

I fall away frowning,

feeling as if I’m drowning,

a new life now crowning –

Me without you, evermore.

All about you that I once adored

takes 27 seconds to walk out the door.
