I know, you know…

I look yet can not see
I listen yet can not hear
I feel yet sense nothing
from you in return.

My demons tell me you’re
not real, how else can I
explain your indifference
your avoidance of me.

I’d no expectations save
you lived up to who you
say you are. I know, you
know, I am a fool.

Woken up now…

I’ve become a little lost on here
not being the man I am
to those who know and need me.

I’ve been distant, distracted
passive, as if waiting for something
to happen in my life, this isn’t me.

I’ve woken up now, can’t keep
waiting for a future I have no
say in, impossible to make real.

You live for today not tomorrow
I make you feel good, it’s only here
you want me, this reality for you.

Shorts – a take on poetry: Review by L Owen

The nature of our online world, as real, you remember people, however distant, they’re here in some way – a review by L Owen who blogged until a few years ago:

EDS Shorts eBook Cover

Easy reading short quirky poems about life and relationships
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 May 2020 by L Owen (Amazon UK)

‘Easy reading but very thought provoking. Eric has a marvellous way of writing one thing but possibly meaning something else entirely. What exactly? That’s for you to decide, to interpret in your own way and that dear reader is the joy of poetry. From a poets point of view… I thoroughly enjoyed this collection.’
