Poetry Blogs (goodbye)

Curtain Call.

I only write when I'm sad
Cause I use my words to cope.
So what am I supposed to say
When I feel the slightest bit of hope?

Love poems and positive thoughts?
I've tried that but it's all been said
I start writing and all I can think about
Is the times I wanted a bullet in my head.

Pretty typical stanza coming from me
Everything I write is basically the same
Oh no, I broke down the fourth...

I was an addict

When you met me, I was an addict, and you were too.
We were addicts together.
We used each other, because that's what addicts do.
Our foundation was made of sex, drugs, and booze. No wonder it couldn't hold us.

When we ran together I was an addict, and you were too.
Each time I saw you was exciting, glamorous, taboo.
Never underestimate the value of a good running buddy.

When you told m...

Farewell Serpentine

Circling the water
one final evening
I catch sight of my reflection
see those lines forming
writ across my brow
so I roll my head in ink
kiss the page…

Soon, we’ll be quietly leaving
no longer anchored in Zone Two
swaddled by the Thames
for an unknown pause we’re going now
The shapeless mess of time approaches
with me, desperately
clawing at relief lines
to understand what gradient

Goodnight Trellick

Riding the night train home
you fall asleep, head on my shoulder
I watch our reflection in the glass
watching our reflection
age
improve
converge
expand
as you sleep
on the night train home…

It’s a short walk on a summer evening
a short walk to our place
my arm around your shoulder
pulling you in close
I look up into the sky
deeply
drunken
grateful
expansive
but I see no stars...

Until Then, I’ll Be Waiting For You

entry picture

Yesterday is in the past
Tomorrow is closing in
But today is here
As we make plans for your last day.

We play at your favorite playground
Away from the busy city lights
And talk about all the fun times we had together
That are now precious memories inside my head.

As the moon slowly awakes from its slumber
I know today is coming to the end
But you grab my hand and say to me,
"Inside the...

Puzzles To Speak After You

Disappearing, out of view
always so smooth
always too soon
you make disappearing cool

When you slipped away
left puzzles to speak after you
let them say whatever’s needed
an exit so expertly executed

I wasn’t always a fan of you
such strange clothes
too out of time
so far removed from me
I didn’t know what you could say
that could ring true for me
I never thought there could be a...

Not so gentle reminders

What am I supposed to say? Goodbye?

Goodbye.

That didn't work.

I'll try,

Try again. Bye.

It's fine. I'm fine. I'm alive.

I'm dying.

Dying, flying back

To the tracks

The click clack

The roar of the black

Train gliding by so fast

It lasts

Only as long as the last

Car to pass 

And brings terrible silence

Into the night.

FATHER AND SON

entry picture

I touch your cheek,

I'm surprised, it's cold.

I reach for your hand

for I need it to hold.

 

I look upon your face

that beamed and sparkled

as we loved and laughed,

wrestled and tickled.

 

Your face is so pallid,

the sparkle is gone,

no more to smile

at the hot summer sun.

 

Your hair neatly tended,

you lie there so still

as I try, with memories,

CURTAIN CALL

entry picture

How do you say goodbye

to everyone you love,

your family and friends

who you hold high above.

 

How do you say goodbye

to the one in your heart;

your soul mate, from who

none could tear you apart.

 

Your night and your day

and in every sweet way,

no words could express

what you're needing to say.

 

How do you say goodbye

to the child in your hand

My one day friend, Mark

  To Liverpool

By: Ali Taha Alnobani
On Vernon street
Off Dale street
I sat near the sidewalk
At the edge
Like a broken bridge
People were passing
With their robot walking
Sea gulls felt my pain
Also did the rain
And my one day friend Mark
Who heard the voice of gulls in my heart
And my desire to start
His frien...

Goodbye, Gaston

.

 

 

 

My uncle, Gaston,
mum's bro (1-yr apart),
died whilst I cradled him
in the crook of me arms.

He lay there bliss-filled
Faint lustre of his boyhood charms.

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

I whis...
