Pocketbook

By Elvira

We open our pocketbook
when we trust and love
going in with starry eyes and hope
the sun shine always
even the rain does not cloud.

Sun, Sun, and . . .
the thunder
the hidden betrayal looms its ugly head.
what went wrong?
Nothing.
Only the Picture of Mr. Grey
becomes a fact. Dr Jekyll is Mr Hyde!

“all happy families are the same –
all unhappy families are unhappy
in their own way”
there are some happily ever afters:
but Misery is an Oscar winner.
