The Web Poetry Corner - J D Cully - Lausanne

Lausanne

by

J D Cully

And so this is her 21st birthday
I truly loved the words she used to write
If only I’d answered her tag that same day
‘Cause then the e-mails stopped overnight
She used to call me a pal but now it’s gone
In Soho Square the music plays on

Our mutual listing’s just a relic of the past
She wipes my comments off her journal now
I really believed our friendship would last
Won’t someone from the ring just tell me how?
I followed her across - then the bond was gone
Still Virgin Radio plays on

But will her betrayal jade these memories fond
Now that she’s cast me to the wind and weather?
On LJ’s blasted heath three sisters bond
But will they recall who brought them together?
A kiss from Lady Miss - but the Star Maiden’s gone
For some people the life goes on

I’d wish her happy returns but she doesn’t care
As she walks on Switzerland’s languorous shores
Her student saga freezes on the air
Still I steal glances through the sliding doors
The weather reports won’t say why it’s gone
Fairytale of New York plays on
