Poetry Blogs (love and time passing)
22 years ago/55 years too soon
your smile could light this dark room
people speak fondly of you, I think they're all stuck in the past
but your name is legendary around here, to say you didn't last
for the love you only knew was one of a clenched fist
but you were my father, and you are still missed
Stepdad, sportsman, golfing fanatic
when we drink to...

With you I feel my heart,
As love began to start.
The two of us shall grow,
Let's take things very slow.
The first moment we met,
I haven't known it yet,
That this is love that I felt,
Until my heart begins to melt.
The time froze like ice,
As I gaze to your pretty eyes.
Truly lovely sight it is,
Your stare to me can move trees.
You have a gorgeous hair,
Also mine, to be fair.

As the sun slowly slides
through a quickly capsizing sky
you laugh at me for taking photographs
for wanting to record this way of things

in our short lives
And with each day that ends
I feel a larger ending
and with each dusk de...

I love my brother
I love my sister
I love my mummy

but they've gone on ahead
that's what mummy and daddy reckon
so I have to love them even more
'cause granny and granddad are dead.

I'm to leave now
A tall ghost is carrying my bag
A long street is walking behind me
A mad merchant bought my smiles
And no water to renew the dusk
I can't have my step begun
Even if the rain washed my tears
I'm to leave now
Can I have a deep look at your eyes?
Can I take my dreams, your smile
And my dried red rose?...

Like lifting lino - underneath
another world revealed.
Adverts for corsets, garden twine
and orthopaedic shoes.
News of a war, or peace in our time.
I move the realistic rocks we made
for the museum. I painted them, grey and gnarled,
but it was you who made the frame.
And stretched between the two
is paper mach...
