Formalities.

Mr. Grim Reaper:

Greetings!
how well can you recall,
our last meeting?
Me?…quite vividly…
as with most things,
I’ve come to harbor –
oh so very,
resentfully…
and so,
accordingly,
I compartmentalize –
my fuzzy thoughts,
and fading feelings…
it is most certainly,
no secret at all,
between them and me –
after all this time,
I’m just still not ready,
to meet you on time,
for our next meeting…
I know, I know –
I have said this before,
took a mile from an inch,
and became a no-show,
but I’ve caught myself,
a new wind to blow,
I’m sorry to do this,
but you’re on your own…
maybe next time,
that we’ve scheduled to meet –
I’ll surprise both of us,
and finally die on my feet,
the gift will be yours,
eventually,
we both know this,
so stop sweatin’ me.

    Those verses are outstanding!!!… I like the ironic wink and that kind of back and forth game in your poem… Thank you! Best wishes. Aquileana 😀
