her songs

she told me late one night

were all about her relationships with men

her absent father who then died early

leaving her fully abandoned

the fellas she met while on the road

at gigs between venues musician parties

some she lived with for a little while

& a few she truly loved

accepting their frailties with booze the drugs

but she did not once tell of her own frailties

except for her love of the men with these

thinking her songs were enough

to fill in the gaps

One thought on “her songs
