Better Man

There was a spider that
I wish I killed.

It was on her and
I backed away.

Should have been a better man.

There were times
Where I was selfish.

I could have offered
Her a drink.

Should have been a better man.

There were nights I
Didn’t call.

And now the
Phone sits still.

Should have been a better man.

There are things that
I regret –

Things remaining in
My thoughts

That speak to doubts
And tell me, always…

Should have been a better man
Should have been a man at all.

  2. Love the Gnomes! Have you heard of Gnomesville in Western Australia? Acres of them in groups depicting wide range of activities. Have recently purchased an ancient, worn gnome in New South Wales with the intention of putting note in my camper's windscreen "Gnome in Home" as I take him to a final resting place!
