The Poet Community

As Planned | A Poem by Guy Farmer

He was looking forward
To seeing her and,
When he arrived at the function,
Found her with someone else.

He tried to put on a
Brave face, inside,
Everything was melting,
Rapidly collapsing.

Years later, the bruise
Is still tender when he
Thinks of the night that
Didn’t go as planned.
