NaPoWriMo Day 9 ~ Use A Song List

The prompt for day 9 on the NaPoWriMo site is to take a random song play list, and use the next five titles in a poem. The next five songs on my playlist are:
‘In The Hearts of Men’
‘From Me To You’
‘Great Unknown’
‘Comes and Goes’
‘Her Embrace’

And here is the poem:

Play On A Play List
We know not what goes on in the hearts of men
For often words spoken match not the actions taken
Some promise love enduring and then next thing you know
Their attentions move from me to you, or you to me
Then others seem unable or unwilling to commit
As if love is some scary great unknown place
I’d like to think that the problem isn’t simple fickleness
But how can it be otherwise when their emotion
Comes and goes so easily…seemingly on a whim
There have been days in which I’ve felt tattered and bereft
These are the times when I miss my mother the most
As there will never be anything as comforting as her embrace

    For often words spoken match not the actions taken – That’s so true. Superbly done, as usual. You have talent, girlfriend 🙂
