Hook Line Thinker


I was reeled in
Not knowing if I was
Swimming...or broken
I swallowed your line
Starving for what you fed me
Dumbstruck and wounded
There was no fight,
No chance that I would not
Succumb to your lures
Maybe here was my chance
To witness saviour
But now I see
You have chosen
To fillet and release
My heart.

And there's plenty more fish in the sea.
For those like you.

    super! one pun is fun; two is double fun; if you use more, .....puns may become your whore!
    the poem does cause one to think, so i accept thinker in the title. how about hook line; stinker? or hook line; sink her? i hope you found a good heart surgeon. love it as a poem. hate it if it happened to you. thanks for sharing. bri (Report) Reply

Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
