Poetry Blogs (Reconciliation)
When you see the sun setting behind the black clouds,
his rays stretched towards you in the hope of rescue,
and you know it’s not his time to leave,
it’s not dusk yet,
what do you do?
Stay still, stay calm.
Kiss him goodbye.
Make yourself a cup of tea,
sit by the fire, read a book, and wait.
Wait for he shall return soon.

We are at war
We are at war
and I should not be calm.
We are on the battleground
Holding our castles
and guarding our rights and riches.
We, you and me, are at war my love

& he was hanging on.
He held back the Ripper's blade
Unmindful that he'd had it made.

Sonnets are meant to be about romance
You know? All that's good.
But why should form be contained,

in their own expression?
Imagination like a dodgems car,
wild yet bumpy.
And I guess that's what love is,
you can try to steer in the right direction
but there will always be obstacles...
