who would have wondered?

by - Mr. Darcy   May 15, 2019

A thread caught in my eye
as I looked, by and by
at the thread in my eye -
I had to know… why,
this thread that flew by
had stuck on my eye?


I pulled at the thread
laying prone on eye-bed
yet now, it was said,
my eye is, quite red.
Could eye and this thread
be joined - were they wed?

A crazy pair-match,
my mental-mind lapsed;
needing, a smile. . . perhaps?
A Slap!
Clarities back,
So I ran the bath tap,
the thread, I must say

a simple, eyelash!

    Some clever rhyming here, Michael. Using the same rhyming sounds over numerous lines is never easy and you do it really well here.

      I'm find writing, non-rhyming poetry the hardest of all. We tune into the beat, do we not?
      Thanks for reading and commenting, Ben.

    I could feel your pain and discomfort with this. So glad it turned out to be an eyelash my imagination was working over time in entirely a gory direction in the first two stanzas such a relief to read a nicely penned reprieve in the last :) much love Milly xx

      We all need a little misdirection once in awhile. I'm glad you appreciated it. Xx

    Ok this is supposes to be fun, but what came to my mind is pulling out stitches from an eye after a surgery.
    But I like it especially the ending, it was a fun write indeed!!
