YESTERDAY'S NEWS


While I held you in my arms....and felt your warm body next to

mine....as your savory lips gave forth......sweet nectars of delight....my

thoughts returned to yesterday.....And as the dreams of promised love,

vanished; I suddenly realized you'd become....yesterday's news.

And that once gentle voice....and those provocative eyes, and

lips....no longer moved me....for the thrill is gone...and, as those moments

of yesterday vanished into the mist of the greyish dawn....I recalled the

many promises that had been made and broken; the lies, and promisses that

became the realm of your deceit.

Those promises and lies that were spoken in emptyness....as just one

more attempt to hold on to yesterday's memories......memories, that I no

longer find appealing....Empty words of pain, grief, and sorrow....words

that became as empty and shallow as your love.....A memory of yesterday's

love.....those memories of yesterday's news.
