Poems--By Shirley Smothers--United States

Inspired by Marilyn Monroe’s Poetry

The heart ache and pain
If only to find relief
Help this weary gal.

I tried to love You
But You left, never returned
Good nite my once love

Eyes windows of soul
But the nite has eyes that see
My darkest of fears

A blue velvet couch
Left my doll in her carriage
The doll was stolen

  3. Shirley,
    Liked your poems written in haiku form. I am not familiar with Marilyn Monroe's poetry, but I'm sure she would be jealous!
    Your friend,
