a smash a crash,

ink stained lettering

addressed to me.

a crackle a tackle

you, your dearly beloved

wedded to be.

a toss a turn

yet another man

nothing like you.

a squeeze a tease

those shoes we waltzed in

danced with her too.

a queue a pew

feather hats and bows

with my frankincense and myrrh.

a tie a lie

clasping my jewel lost hand

imagining we never were.

a splutter a mutter

for one of Shakespeare’s greats

a tragic love story once more.

a clap a tap

your Adam’s apple sunk

my heart beating sore.

a signature a vow

together at last

looking divine.

a choke a smoke

an adulterous glisten in your eye

you’ll always be mine.
