April 2, 2016 Writer's Digest PAD Challenge for April/ Proof Positive

Proof Positive

no it made no sense at all        someone said                    maybe it was you

maybe her                                she would like to meet us in ny

i made reservations                  it was still months away    i got the big room

an extra bed                             let you know                      you were in japan

then someone                          maybe it was you                maybe it was her

that she wouldn't be coming    then i learned someone i knew      would be in NY

i thought                                   she could sleep in that bed   share the big room

but first                i wanted to ask if it would be OK                      you agreed

that didn't work out...


then she contacted me             said she would come to ny              great 

we had a bed for her                later                                                  you said

 i never made the reservations with her in mind          because 

i asked if my friend                  who would be in ny            could share the room

proof positive                            sometimes you can't win

  1. Yes, a no win situation, where it seems your consideration was not noticed. Sigh.

  2. Your three column set up works so well for this one...goodness, it's frustrating when planning takes so much energy...sometimes not meant to be. Nice work, Annell!
