“Deluge Cometh”

What is that, sprawled across my bed?!

I see it, and blood rushes straight to my head,

My jaw hits the floor, I cannot believe,

The audacity, look at the bare faced cheek!

Did you plan this, or did it just happen this way?

My eye glimpses wetness, resembling a wave,

Overcome, I come over and firmly request,

“Don’t leave wet towels, in the place where I rest!”


🤣🤣🤣 I bet you didn’t see that twist coming, did you!? I intentionally kept the piece in a misleading, suggestively carnal state, until the very last moment.

I was inspired to write this, by my pet hate of finding wet towels considerately dumped on my bed by my loved ones, leaving a lovely soggy patch where I sleep! 😳 Nice! Thank you! 🙃 [WARNING, this paragraph has now reached sarcasm overload!] 😂😂😂

My Wife’s a bleeder for doing it! 🤨 Yes, I did just name and shame you Babycakes, but only because my numerous frowny faces and disappointed words, have not worked thus far! Oops, trouble in paradise! 😜😂🤣🤣🤣

So, what’s one of your pet peeves?

Yes, this post has now become an official venting spot, for your random gripes and annoyances! …you’re Welcome!! 😉😁

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
