A cardboard in hand

Dirty fingernails

I nearly tripped over you

With my coffee in a mug

Cherry ripe in a bag

Eyes locked a smile and nod ensued

I smiled back apologised

Shit what can I do

Tears welled up

I walked back to my car

A lump in my throat grew

Grabbed my card

Walked into shop

Told them to take the amount

Offer him the menu

Choose what he wants

Hot cold drinks food doesn’t matter

You choose for he they say you see

Don’t give him the choice of food

Angrily I said let him feel free

For a moment you stupid fool

We’re all in chains

This thing called life

Working to live and breathe

Whilst others fall quick

On drugs or sick

The man plays us like fiddles

He’s but just one

Down on his luck

I pray tonight he keeps warm

Dark clouds ahead

Concrete floor his bed

Thunder and lightening

A sudden storm

Sleep evades her

Is near but shaded

By thoughts and wonderings

Amongst shrubs and flowerings

Questions flowing

And that she knows

The answers troubling

As the worlds heartbeat

rumbling

Crumbling

cracks widening

Time moves too fast

Sun,s shadows cast

Moving 2 inches past

Yet another day passed

And no magic was had

No yellow road to follow

And yet she continues to

Make her own paths

Early starts

Fizzled out before the day begins

Effervescent in body

Yet mind is far and longing

For the way to be shown

Someone take the reigns please

And get rid of this unease

Stop the tease

So close yet miles

From your smiles

Drip feeding the thoughts and riddles

As you fiddle with words

How absurd

Let them flow

Roll forth

No thought

Ah daylight breaks

Return back to reality

Drink that coffee

Feel the bubbles begin once more

Alert and a moron no more

The cord on the train

Is out of reach

The button on the poles

All taped up

The vision of life

Passes by at a speed

Visions of blur and streaks

I awake to news of joy

He’s on the mend

Will see you again

Until then friend

Be well

but never tell

Of the magic on that swell

As the time flew

When will the train stop

You conductor of life

And colour blue

‘Tis quiet all about

Yet you hide with no words to shout

Is it the quiet before a storm

There are so many waiting for words to adore

Do I plan for more travels adventures to see

The great family that rules music you see

There are questions accusations and lies to hear

But when you’re ready I guess, you’ll say no fear

Older bolder

Wiser Colder

That shade of blue

Envelopes you

Triggers you have

Red green hues

Salted words

Sugary thoughts

Peppered and marred

Emotionally scarred

Put on hold

The family charred

He pushed boundaries

A young girl she is

As old as the hills

He bedded she

The truth was revealed

With wide eyed intentions

The young man hid well

The young girl’s discretions

Unfortunate for all

The lie then appeared

A red rose presented

What does this all mean

The sniggers the whispers

The voices and slippers

As glass is fragile

So is the mistress

Smile

Curled up lips

Eyes that twinkle

Toothy smile

Glossy like tiles

Feel the feels

Lemon peels

Bask in your warmth

And moody tunes

Wine and cheese

Close and pleased

My heart seized

The smile lingers

Just as your finger

Caresses lips

Upturned twist

I touch your wrist

Eyes that meet

Take a seat

Enfold and reap

The rewards of patience

Ships that sail

Train left the station

I remember now

Your furrowed brow

Blonde hair and tossled

After your show

Before midnight

A kiss to know

You’re always there

In the shadows

On hills and meadows

We’ll make love under the moon

The stars will seize our passion within

Until then a smile will do

And yes I love you blue

Numb

Blown away

Her magic

Here to stay

Her light

Dimmed today

Her soul

Renewed and played

Out a journey

Of one so blessed

Yet now she rests

Tired but not finished

Let her love life and journey

On this ungodly world

Be a lesson to mere mortals

Your time is short

Love and light

Her words not mine

Rest In Peace now

For Olivia Newton John

A door closes

Was only ajar

But for a few moments

And only afar

The words left unspoken

Linger still

Over the oceans

On slopes of a hill

The cottages are burning

With flames well lit

The sofa seat warm

From the warmth beneath

From 5 star locations

To 2 in the woods

Creating the moments

Rest upon us and could

Lead to memories of joy

Happiness and bliss

Your hair eyes and voice

Know I truly miss

A little break

Is what we need

Feet ache

Red hot knees

Elbow bruised

Worn out shoes

9 to 5

Onset blues

Head throbbing

Tired of sobbing

Watch the news

Now petrol robbing

What shall we to do

Prices sky rocketing

Who’s at the door

Screen as their knocking

Oh lucky country

You were once thee

Confusion ranks

Uncertain destiny
