    Self pity

    My imagination
    runs riot
    when I envision
    the scenario
    of us lying in bed
    your warm breath
    igniting my flesh
    spiral of desire
    rising like fire
    consuming us

    Alas I wait
    with your photo
    under my pillow
    tears I swallow
    you never came
    beat a retreat
    when you saw
    my photo
    a plain Jane!

    My imagination
    took a nose dive
    I now wallow
    in self pity!
