Two poems by Sue Savoy

Things I wanted that I couldn't have, a limerick

There once was something I wanted 
With its nearness I was taunted 
I reached out to touch 
But missed by this much 
And by that I'm forever haunted.


Things I wanted that I couldn't have, a nonet

Everything I ever wanted was 
denied to me -- no, that's a lie. 
I tried to never want much. 
Then if you don’t get it 
you won’t have to be 
disappointed. 
But turns out 
I still 
was.
