I Got Burned


The Writer, Vernon Wade

Vernon Wade is a poet, author and freelancer. He has been published in The Gorge Literary Journal, Dualsport Rider Magazine, Hack’d Magazine, The Sidecarist, ROB Magazine and The Hood River News.

The world fills him with wonder.  When he looks at the sky he is lifted into flights of fancy, when he stares at the earth he is drawn beneath its surface. He is delighted to find the macrocosm and the microcosm equally mesmerizing.





When I look at photos of you from your youth,
I laugh and say:
“I got burned!”
You do know I am just kidding?
You were beautiful when we met
and you are beautiful now.
When I look at you
I still see the beautiful woman
I first met, all those years ago.
I also see the beautiful woman
I live with,
and I remember all those wonderful times
we’ve had between then and now.
Happy Birthday to my beautiful wife;
I love you, Amy.
