Last Time




Keeps repeating in my head

One last time

Before i go to bed

One last time

Before all the thoughts are dead

Let the world shine again

No more dread


One last time


In my mind

One last time

On my dime

One last time

My heart will bleed

No more

One last time

It won't spill on the floor

An intriguing verse; it reads as though the strong, deliberating person in the words has finally kicked procrastination into touch in regards to an overhanging decision which begged for conclusion. Peace will surely follow, when the sun shines again through the droplets from tears of finality, to create that much craved for, private rainbow.

Thank you for sharing.

Best Wishes,

Don't know why but I could only think of my 3 year old wanting to get one more glass of milk after being put to bed.

(I need to get out more around adults)

The power of a few, well-written words! This is a poem that will surely mean something different to every person who reads it. Plus the photo is a knock out.

Very mysterious and interesting piece, open to interpretation. I needed to read it "One Last Time," but then...I read it again and again. Very thought-provoking.

So nice, now that I am back regularly, to see that you are still dishing out good copy here in your Hubs. Well done, though I read it tinged with sadness. Here's hoping that life is once again glorious.

Simple and dark expression, could be referring to a myriad of different topics. Could be addiction, or a hurtful lover, very thougth provoking, voted up.

Very interesting and catchy verse Caroline.. Also makes the reader 'think' to find the interpretation of what it may mean to them, and if that corresponds with you the writer's meaning. Voted up.
