Poem: A Timely Smile – 28/01/21

This smile, she is timely, she has arrived well and alive, with her presence her owner will revive, feel stronger, amazing, and whole. There were calls for her demise, suffocations of her interior, breath caught in her lungs, catching at the escape, wishing for the air never to be free nor fly, but now, a rapid sigh of relief, [...]

Poem: Raging Cafe – 23/01/21

I arrived at the café in a raging mood, everything felt wrong, angered me, made me feel misunderstood. Fluctuations in mood today carried on from yesterday, I was filled with upsets, overwhelmed with dismay. I sniped, I snarked, I complained, I felt bitter, could nothing go right, this is terrible, will it improve? I wondered. I’ve not had days like these in months, everything has been somewhat [...]

Poem: Brightness – 17/01/21

Brightness engulfs that wicked room where tales were never shared. Where fears, anxiety, irreverently unfold within the gloom, resting concerns upon one’s hands. There is a quietness which is perturbed by the stately arrival of glaring white and unnatural upheaval, a certain something, a funk, a stink, which would bring one to their knees, into the darkest of thickets, the tangled thorns, the trees, the thistles. [...]

Poem: The Girl in the Red Dress – 07/01/21

Glaring, inquiring eyes inspecting through shopfront windows, what is it you seek? The girl in the crimson dress with white seams, is it she you are trying to find, do you desire her to speak? On edge, percolated by excess caffeine, anxiety rising, scenes perhaps more than what they seem, to her, everything seems suspicious, laden with layers of notions and commotions and terribly haunting dreams. [...]

Poem: Fields of Colour – 02/01/21

Ink and colours swirl and fly, admirably they meld into the other, watch our joy multiply. There’s not a moment too soon when we can reach into the stars, colours, outlines, so fantastical, we can hardly believe them ours. I know that these hues and shades might not be here forever, but I appreciate and accept, allow them to provide my eyes pleasure and favour while I introspect, I know not their meanings to you, [...]

Poem: Delicate – 01/01/21

Perhaps some are meant to be apart for a while, to allow distance and the ability for truth to no longer be real. Imagination reigns without truth, what is that person seeing, feeling, what will they do, thoughts of them, I should really be immensely and measurably through. Delicate interventions, reaching out in a moment, wondering is no longer wondering because now there’s an [...]

Poem: Letting It Go – 29/12/20

Let us ride the waves of misery but away, away from the blight, allow us to shine with the knowledge of that mystery, as we approach each other in the dead of night. And let us have that embrace which has been awaiting us for oh so many years, let me feel that heartbeat of yours and detract from all my old fears. Please let me wash away the hurt that I feel within my soul, let it rain, let it rain, and rinse away the suffering, [...]

Poem: Change – 24/11/20

The times are changing, my dear friends, my heart is no longer in tatters, I don’t need to make amends, I have said what I’ve said, and in rebuke another spoke their own words, allow us to simply remain separate and ponder, there’s no longer any need to hiss nor attend any longer. There is so much time but so little in fact, [...]
