Midweek Poems – “I Love my Baby, My Baby Don’t Love Me”… R. Johnson

We can sit and stare at each other for hours, but have nothing to say. We can walk happily hand in hand for miles, but she can’t make love to me.

We … Continue reading Midweek Poems – “I Love my Baby, My Baby Don’t Love Me”… R. Johnson

Midweek Poems – Out of Sight Out of Mind?

The flames rise to dance anew with the added fodder. Sadness consumes happiness as thoughts feed the flames. Wood to coal to ashes the dance goes on.

Life of a Smoke

I’m lying in the dark for what seems like forever. I know I exist, because I feel movement and solid mater surrounds me on all sides. Suddenly a light shines on me, I’m grabbed large soft things squeeze me too hard. In a single movement I’m transported between a pair of soft, warm surfaces that … Continue reading Life of a Smoke

Frustration

Frustration Oh, so cold, very cold Cold enough to spread Out of my centre. Cold enough to raise The hair on my forearms. Cold enough to cause My hands to loose grip of my pen.
