The sweetest memories hang
in the dark room of my mind
I develop them occasionally
more exciting times
Yellows and browns begin to wash
across the leaves outside my window
I haven’t seen you in the flesh
since those shoots were new
it feels so long ago
We ran through those streets
as if we owned them
spinning endlessly from bar to bar
from joke to ...

When I walked through the path,
Alone in the moonlight stars.
I found a stranger wearing smile,
Didn't know the feelings behind
Walked with her and saw a different world
'There I got a new family' - I loved
Didn't know we could get so close
That my life could be disastrous if we broke.
Hiding the feelings behind and faking the smile they left.
Hope of meeting again is the only thing they ...

Encouraged by comments on my latest blog - and reminded that I always intend to post my blogs on WOL and usually get distracted before doing so - I'm repeating a blog from a few weeks ago which I didn't post here. With thanks to those who commented on the last one!
I've been thinking about what happens next. There's been a lot of talk in the press, and shared posts on social media, about t...

world is hushed
but inside we are all screaming
waiting for the tomorrows
when our meetings will be filled with embraces,
with reading a silent stare
and we will know what they mean
not just from a frozen screen
but for a reflection of all time
We are all waiting for the tomorrows
we will no longer meet in solitude
but a meetin...

We met there in the bar
the same drink
the same table
conversing over troubles
we leaned on each other
in those long nights
I sit and wait
at the same table
with the same drink
you hadn’t arrived yet
and I linger for hours
Nights like this pass
was it something I said
was there someone new
what was it keeping you
Then you arrive one night...

I saw your face after 8 months of absence
Could have avoided it by taking another path
But I pressed on
Faced the challenge
Saw your smile
And I felt nothing
Only the regret that I gave you more than you ever deserved
I relived the moment a hundred times
I could have said so many things
I could have taken the high road and be pleasan...

A honk and a wave,
a smile greets you
not able to place the face
but you comply
then she questions your well-being
Scrolling through the latest developments
you pick an appropriate response,
‘I’m hanging in there. Happy Thanksgiving.’
She returns with the same,
then disappears into the sea of lights
She is too kind
this is not the ...

I see myself in a cerulean blue sea of balance
with depths of ultramarine.
I am an island of content in cadmium yellow with fringes of frivolous lemon yellow
and hints of passionate alizarin crimson.
In orbit around me are my family, friends and loved ones
who are moons of solid ochre yellow love.
They hold me.
This is my tiny portion of the universe.
