Throwback Friday – Care Guide – Eric (EDC Writing)

A ‘poem and a line’ hung separately before, re-aired at the ‘Go Dog Go Cafe’ today…

Go Dog Go Café

‘Poem and a line’ –  an early 2018 poem and a six word line – a light care guide to laundry! 

…..

Care guide no use
hand rub squeeze tight
deep soak wet through
hot wash why rush
spin-cycles least two
well-conditioned hell yes
iron best wrinkle free
airing-cupboard tight fit
while here clean sheets
okay mister don’t mess up
damn you’re doing it again

She’s a tickle… he’s an itch

Throwback Friday – Life’s Light – Eric (EDC Writing)

Life’s light felt right to post again over at the Cafe…

Go Dog Go Café

Grey autumn day
clouds as far as eyes can see
breeze swept trees shake off leaves
smoke swirls from log-fired chimneys

Arm in arm they walk
snuggled close to share their warmth
each complete with one another
for them there is no other

The path they tread now clear ahead
past diversions left behind them
a footstep from the door they pause
embrace give looks that say it all

The key their love he sweeps her up
lips touch across the threshold
life’s light within first sign of spring
winter closed the door behind them

Him & Her – Again

Him

Relieved to say with surety this saga over now

you’ve shown what you really are, as for who

I’ve not a clue, I’m quite glad of that, makes

ending this farce easier, it isn’t hard at all

 

The signs have always been there, your

inconsistencies, your lack of sensitivity

your inability to keep tabs of us, just how

long we’ve been in touch, seems ironic now

 

I believed in you for so long, guess I wanted to

couldn’t see, at best, you’re just on here for fun

It’s sad really that you need to fake so much

I’d say goodbye, but why, we’ve never said hello

 

Her

 What on earth has got into you? I know exactly

how long we have been in touch with each other

thank you, but all I hear from you is complaining

do you not think your negativity really upsets me

 

Do you honestly believe that these constant threats

of you going are doing you any favours at all

let’s be clear, I’m not playing your game any more

you’ve shown what you are, and that’s not nice at all
