poem contest one and two not for rewards

She then and now

WHEN I was young...
she made tea and coffee for me

now when my hands shake
she yells at me

can't you even add sugar properly
now she is training me

old age is a curse
we all depend not on poetic verse

but on times gone worse
from a sparking skin
to wrinkles

when she did smile
I had tears of joy
now as I grow old
she toys for words
why don't now come tears

she loves me still
but says
when will you go
you are now too old
suffering untold
my new bf says
push him

where ???
he stares

Second below above one


Sinking of the Titanic

So many on the
I have composed
the same bodies
again and again disposed

but the beautiful marks on the carriage
they scored
my what a lovely sight
if they'd been whorred

they loved like angels two
a nude lady
a painter (artist) phew

they lived a few moments of their life
all say the only one time
makes a lady pregnant
if she only wears a diamond
on her bare body
where she has to bear
a man's gait
his vertically straight!
