Double Crossed Heart

Baby in the back seat, and another on the way,
Sherry thinks of Billy at the end of every day,
Spends her nights waiting for real life to start,
Listening to the sound of her double crossed heart.

— from Broke Down by Slaid Cleves

Now, don’t you think that’s just great poetry? I just love the imagery.

  1. Great poetry and a slippery slope! I keep forgetting to stop by! You have some good stuff here, Neal.
