Topic: The Locket. Helena Donovan
This piece is about what happened to me about 100 years ago now Actually late sixties with my first love. All say Aaah !!
Thank You" It took me a long time to renew my vitality for life and love, Life has a way of scullhauling ones head back to reality.
I still have the locket and he did give it me on Valentines day.
A locket in my jewellery, possesses memories
2 photos, black and white, both of you and me
Heart shapes, signs of love, golden symmetry,
Filigree of deception, you gave them lovingly.
A multi coloured legend, you were in youthful days
Carnaby clad, blonde, a DJ’s attractive ways
Your music was so hip we danced the nights away
Every girl wanted you, to make her yours one day.
You left the stage one night, asked me out to dance
The Trogg’s “with a girl like you, started our romance
Surprised, but i was nervous, with looks of jealous death
Said, “You loved my smile and kissable minty breath.
We’d scour the music shops for the latest vinyl hits
Wearing Miniskirts with platforms, and you bell bottom suits
You sang songs, wrote me poetry, a formula for love
Talked and laughed endlessly, we didn’t drink or smoke.
But deception raised its head, with someone else alleged
Virginity was for marriage, but, you took Suzanne to bed.
Your eyes were full of sorry, as you tried to change my mind
Your passion left her pregnant, I left our world behind.
Confusion in my teens, i felt lost and scorned
Innocence of years, once happy now forlorn
From every stage i sang, as the years went passing by
The glitter of the dance ball reflected you into my eyes.
Sure i may as well link the famous song i mentioned also.
Ps. Suzanne is an alias for the girl mentioned.
