Let Breathe – Six words into verse

Young hearts fragile as old bones

Catch her cold she goes viral

Born to see days like tomorrow

Wait a moment and it’s gone

 

No escape tied up in dreams

His will to keep her near

Her hand quite ordinary till held

The gift of his life hers

 

Reality no place in this fantasy

Smile at the ludicrousness of stars

Take away the madness let breathe

Be still let yourself go now

Promises – Poem and a line

He a man untied

to time or anything

beyond accepted promises

 

She his curved ball

provokes imagination

believes she can be his

 

Conscience slips and slides

everyday more blind

to all he’ll leave behind

 

As he sleeps he stares

sees her in his darkness

light rolls back their years

 

Love beyond words

felt though unheard

their promises unbroken

 

…..

 

He remembers, she too… will always

 

Renovation – Poem and a line

Key in the door

a little stiff

needs lubricating

she keeps telling him

 

Steps inside

odd smell greets

wet plaster wood dust

others homes not his

 

Walls holes overfilled

tiles broken rough edges

doors an inch too short

frames botched distorted

 

Windows condensation soaked

heating gone awry

message painted on a wall

your home as you left mine

…..

Prerequisite… drill then screw. Nailed it.

‘As I’ve said I know you, you see pressure in everything, even when its really not there, and you just won’t give in to a man’s point of view, being #stubborn is your auto-response, it always has been with me, why not truly listen and give the real inner you a chance?’ #vss365

‘Come on, stop playing games, I know you’re a smart girl, so less of the indignation please, it’s not helping you or us, so get real, stop avoiding the problem you have with men, I’m one and I’m trying to help you, okay!’ #1lineWed – theme ‘game’
