Curls (Draft 1)

Curls (Draft 1)

Oh I wonder did you ever know
how I looked at your curls and would
have calmed you when

the rain made you worry
about the frizz, oh I
didn’t care about the rain

and if when you were soaked
you were not elegant enough
for the Ambassador’s Dinner then

I wouldn’t want
a rain pout, I just would
want a messy you
curled up with me, and
I’d reveal that I
have a glass slipper.

  1. I love this! I’m glad that I don’t need a fairy godmother to straighten my crazy curls. Though the rain does do a frizz-number on my hair. You are like a royally amazing, poetic Prince Charming – so skilled in the word play…I’d curl up next to you anytime.

    1. Thanks. I don’t know if it means anything at all because even when there’s a bunch of “Likes” nothing actually happens in terms of buying.

      1. Well, everything you write is excellent, I just know everyone who reads it likes what they’re reading, so that isn’t reason that nothing happens in terms of buying. I think it’s just that most people don’t have a lot of extra money so they come to the internet to get their fix of free stuff to read instead of having to spend money. Which is one of the ways that the internet is amazing, you’re able to reach so many people that may have never heard of you otherwise. I mean, I would’ve never found you if it weren’t for an online sharing forum. Hopefully one day when your readers do have some extra money they will consider spending it on a book or two of yours…
        I guess I just wanna say, don’t get discouraged, cause I think you’re one of the greats.
