How deep

The depths of your love

Knows no end

Encased in all that’s pure

Regardless how it ends

There is no beginning

Nor shall ever stop

For I shall always bask

In your glow it envelopes me

Healing me through and through

Ridding me of all that is blue

These times are so tempestuous

But I can always depend

On your love for me

There it never bends

I’m always in your debt

For you are my friend

This I’ll never regret

For I love you and love to love

As a circle with no end

I’ve avoided you

Mr Blue

You’re wants and needs

Your voice too

Your smile

Laugh

And baby blues

Silver hair

Fingers too

I’ve avoided you

Moved forward

The pain I felt

Mentioned their names

Saw mine and glanced away

I’ve avoided you

Just as you did me

I get it now

Was never to be

I’ve avoided you

And moved forward

Got a degree

That I am proud of

I wish I could share

My wonderful news

Someone to grow with

And wonder with too

I’ve avoided you

It broke my heart

This rope is so thick

It won’t tear apart

My locks are yours

I cut them today

I know you like it this way

Short and natural

Below my ears

Swaying and bouncing

Without any fears

On the floor

A mess on bare feet

I picked the curls up

Heart skips a beat

Oh no have stuffed up

Looked in the mirror

Who was that girl

The COVID hair

I’ve given the whirl

And hurled them into the bin

Just like the tragics

Filled with sin

3.30am

The waves crashing against the shore, Wind howling as the branches tore, of the tree above me, Will I go no I won’t leave, I’ll push the boundary we call luck. I’ll stay put with my junk. This junk I own the last of stuff. Before I had more but now it’s tough. The beach is my home, the trees my shelter. No debts or loans, yes life is sweeter. So I’ll stay here until the morrow when daylight comes there’ll be true sorrow….

Another year

Without you

Another year

Dragged

Another year

Dropped a bombshell

Heart is snagged

Another year

Tears have fallen

Another year

Winter drawing

Another year

You are older

Some may say wiser

Another year

Without a mentor

Another year

Time to be gentler

Shall we dance 2

Cuckoo sounds

Curse the day we met

Forever chained

The string is blue

Another time

Your words were true

The song now plays

A different tune

You clutch again

And spin me through

cyclonic fields

Of words and laughter

Madness thoughts

Of pearls and clutch bags

Ballroom gowns

Neckerchiefs

Men with long hair

Clefts in Chins

bow before me

Eyes of arrows

Heart’s-the target

Fly like a sparrow

Grab my waist

hold my breath

Want

I want

Classic of you

Words of want

Ringing true

I want

All of you

Mixed up words

What now Mr Blue

I want

An idea or two

I want it now

Just a few

I want

You always do

What will you give?

In return Mr Blue?

I want

Here we go again

You call me up

And give your name

Just so you know

A name won’t do

I want much more

All of you

Time on Earth

Should be all it promises

Sunshines and lollipops

Unicorns and horses

But listen while I spill a spool

Of loneliness and heartaches

Where trees Sway

Stairs are long

and winding

And sighs escape when they may

So jig it up

Drop a few, mix it if it pleases

The plan to plot

No sadness you want

So drop them as you need to…

Daughter

I watched the light dim

As your chocolate eyes watched him

Like many others before

Treated you like a whore

Angel like and naive

A good girl I believed

Walking a dark path straight to

Adulthood just to prove

All around you cotton wool

We tried to cushion you

From the world out there

But you just didn’t care

So on you kept going

Till the fourth boy left you lonely

Defending them you did

Your hurt you couldn’t tell

Kept it buried down the well

Till the water overflowed

Up the darkness it arose

Shaking with rage inside

Blew your insides soul and mind

Now the white walls surround you

Whispers white noise docs in blue

Watch you closely as the cracks

Reveal secrets deep dark and black

I wish you could’ve talked to me

Before the eruption made you bleed

If only you shared your pain

Of the boys who broke your brain
