Simply Not A Frog A Poem


He was supposed to be
Unlike the others.
He was supposed to be
Simply not a frog.
Not a prince.
For that is asking
For the impossible.
Simply not a frog
Would pass muster.
Would be adequate
But a frog
Had qualities
I had to see for myself.

He was not a frog
We joked about it.
Among ourselves.
But then he chose
To leave like he was
Cinderella at the ball.
And had a curfew.
He disappeared.
But it was worse
For he was like a ghost.
He has gone silent
And I don't know why.
Except perhaps
His allergic reaction
To my cat.
For up to that moment
Our time was quite pleasant.

Why did he have
To be such a coward
And not explain
His silence?
He set in motion
An awful contemplation.
A mood alteration
That takes a while
To recalibrate.

So not a frog
But what then?
Just another man
Who let me down.

So ya think it's because he was allergic to your cat? 🙀 I'm allergic to cats I know it can get bad, with sneezing 🤧 and all.
And that's it? 🤔 He disappeared?
Hmmm... Ya figure he'd at least say goodbye, no?
What if he were to call you back... Would you let him in? 😶

Paul, it was awful. I really thought we had a connection. His allergic reaction involved having a hard time breathing and red eyes. I had an albuterol inhaler he used. When he got home he took Benedryl. Then I had not heard from him for days and he said he had the flu with a 102 temperature and would call me the next day. He has not called. I did not think he was the ghosting type. That was a few weeks ago. It is one of the reasons I have not been very posting. I have been kind of glum as you can imagine.

The frog has croaked.
Back under his stone.
Getting extra soaked.
Frog without a bone.
