You are a wraith to me now Nothing but a memory Faded to a muzy shadow On the page Flood damage has crinkled your edges Coffee rings daisy chain your face In little etched scars You are smiling soft and sad Sigh like the birds we always tried to catch as children Flit away and […]

Lets see, See that girl me Running around, Thinking she is climbing up when she’s falling down doing too much stuff With no time to sit and think Or be Watch her sink beneath Shoulds and woulds and coulds Drowning in potential Being told it is essential – to choose Knowing what ever she decides […]

Anti-Love Poem

Saturday, November 30th, 2019

I’m incredibly insipid You’re mostly mundane An Apathetic Archetype To my depressingly inane In a mediocre marriage A relationship rut You are no Adonis And at best I am a slut I’m grumpily engrating You’re insomniac inspired And somehow of each other We never do grow tired!

Skeletal Beauty defined Seek completion in the hunger burns Hating self Reflection worse Blazing the power of denial Filling shrunken belly with water Exercise to manic heights Shin splints, lips split Hidden and hiding Hair lank but glossed bright smoking the need away Jitter, fidget, stare intense Rearrange the room Pick at a cushion Weight […]

I Want

Wednesday, November 6th, 2019

I Dreamed of You

Tuesday, August 6th, 2019

I dream of you in the darkest of hours I dream of such warmth, cuddles embraced I dream of love in colours of light I dream of the delightful soul you bare I dream of eyes like vaults of the sky I dream of lips soft: rose, bud, feather I dream of hair in chocolate […]

Refractions and Reflections

Saturday, July 6th, 2019

Refractions, reflections, mirrors and ghosts Worlds built upon hidden rules Each the same in different ways You weave, you wait, you dream Always lost serene Beautiful Refractions, reflections, mirrors and ghosts Worlds built upon hidden rules Turned in on themselves Each the same in different ways You weave, you wait, you sip, you dream Always […]

Little Lover Come to Me

Monday, May 6th, 2019

Come to me my little lover Angel of beauty with softest lips Come to me my gentle one Strong and kind with a sharpness Wit and humour make you great I miss you when you are gone I crave you with my all – as I promised on the day of matrimony Come to me […]

Grandmother Titanic

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

The smell of wood vanish and plimsol rubber in the slanted sunlight The school hall a glow Cross legged and ego we waited as an old old lady wrinkled and furry soft A grandmother like nanny and granny Weary flat stretched grey shoes and floral print dress Hair curled in a white candy floss suasauges […]
