Poem by Anon

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you a poem by Anonymous. I think it's a great poem, and I am glad to have received this submission. Feel free to share your own poems with me and I can post them to share with the group — and your anonymity is guaranteed. (As obvious as we think our own clues are, the reading public is clueless — and I mean that in a good way!)

While you're at it, don't forget to send me the name of your favorite poet and put yourself in the winning for — well, check out the original post for information.


I turn a corner
You are there

I look in the rear view
You are there

I don't drive by your home
You are there

I take a new route
You are there

I change my schedule
You are there

I pick up the boys
The church doors open

I look up
You are both there

I look down
You are both still there

You get the van door
I can't watch

I lay my seat back
You are both still there

I put the seat up
You turn the corner

I drive away
The past is coming - around the corner

I pull out quickly
He waits for me to turn

I don't like corners
I don't know who is coming

I don't like corners
I know who is leaving
