    Red red rose petals scattered on the sheets
    so we could lay amongst their soft petals
    I can still smell their sweet aroma
    like it was only yesterday
    I remember how I rushed home
    so I could get everything ready
    I wanted it to be perfect, just right
    The scented candles placed around the room
    burning, filling the air with jasmine
    so sweet, so heady, your favourite smell
    The wine chilled to perfection
    the sparkling long-stemmed crystal glasses
    the love food we would feed each other
    A sexy neglige, pale mauve, silky, lacy
    you always liked that colour

    I was ready by seven sharp
    waiting in anticipation for you to arrive
    having trouble sitting still, I was so excited
    when I heard the knock at the door, I laughed
    thought it was cute the way you wanted me
    to get up and answer it and let you in

    I pulled it open slowly, a smile on my face
    that died when I saw who stood there
    Blue uniform, serious look, asking my name
    Yes, I am her, yes, he's my husband
    What! no! no! you're wrong, that's not true
    He's on his way home from work, to me
    No, that's the other side of town
    What! Someone was with him, a woman
    pretty, dark hair, about 5'7"
    No, I don't know her, you've made a mistake
    Sorry ma'am, he died on his way to emergency
    No he didn't **** you, he'll be home soon

    But you weren't coming home, I knew that
    when I looked at your face, lying there on the table
    looking beautiful, but feeling so cold
    And I went home alone, broken hearted
    I smashed the wine glasses, threw the candles at the wall
    the wine went down the sink, food in the garbage
    tore the neglige to shreds

    And I lay down on the bed where you used to lay
    and cried myself to sleep
    In a twisted pile of red red rose petals

    i hope you are seriously considering

    pursuing this as an outside profession

    the most talented people are definitely the most modest

    pd...I was lucky enough to be given a small gift..the ability to express myself with beautiful words...if I can bring pleasure with them, then that is my reward...thank you so much for your kind words
