So excited to be participating in the 2012 November PAD (Poem-A-Day) Challenge hosted by Robert Lee Brewer.

Day 1’s prompt comes from Mariya Koleva: Write a matches poem. The matches could be sticks that make fire. Or it could be matches from a game. Or the verb of “to match.” Or as in the phrase “He’s not a good match for you.” Or whatever other match you can make.

So here goes…



We are perfectly matched, you and I

or so I’d like to think

that we always see eye to eye

and that you always know what I think.

In reality, I’m not really sure

how complementary we are

because you’re rough, and I, demure

and our life’s a battlestar.

Maybe we were wrongfully matched

since that first hello

but we were too mismatched

to agree to both say NO.


This was not based on a true story.  I thought I’d have a little fun with it, you know?  🙂
