Philipos on ENSIGN MOUNTBATTEN (7 hours ago)

The things that never will (or was it the Will that never thinks? Honestly it's been so long that I forgot)

I stargaze in my own room,
with thought of holding you.

The melody of songs I don't know,
make me wonder what there is to behold.
With a gentle laugh,
I stand starstruck by your words.

Like a child I stand below it all,
seeing colour that aren't letting you go,
as the stars paint a portrait of your smile,
I am caught stargazing in my own room.

And the sky turns back to white,
as the cei...

The Big Room

bragging about them is natural

my main bedroom is enormous

or, you should see our kitchen

you've never heard such a fuss

 

the living-room where gran died

private places for lovers' trysts,

modern caves instead of holes

in hill-sides wreathed in mists

 

civilised now, flock wall-papered

aertexed ceilings, marble floors,

don't omit that prerequisite, an

exquis...

four walls

 

lying

thinking in the dark

 

four walls do not

make a room

 

a room needs a floor

and ceiling

 

four walls

a ceiling

and a floor

 

four walls with no door

can keep others out

but keep you in

 

a door

an invitation in

or

an exit out

 

try to decide

which is best

 

door or

no door

Arrows of Rain

To hang on a wall of my empty room,

I think I will need a picture of rain.

 

Hitting the ground, and springing up to ankles,

Rain wets the socks and trousers from below.

 

My eyes chase along

Roof-edges, streets, sidewalks,

 

--tick, tick, tick--

 

Checking all, one by one,

To find a dark brolly,

 

And a woman in black enamel shoes,

Lightly treading the...

Chapter 5: Ghost

I stop by  your house today

And decide to hide under your bed

Keeping quiet and low

So you won’t know that I’m here

 

I made these visits a routine now

Because I just can’t let you go yet

Despite my best judgement

I can’t stop being in love with you

 

I can be something special

Something special in your room

Something that you can notice

Something that you ca...

Interlude

  Quietly, she spoke of tea, toast, the after smell of cigars,
Let us say we met in a room: curtained, peeling, private.
Briefly she consulted the winter afternoon,
Reviewed the deadening, leadening sky.

It was discreetly done.
No presences danced beyond no lifted curtains.
Darkness had silted us away.

Words, like spoons, stirred the air,

ROOM HOUSE TELLY WINE

 

ROOM HOUSE TELLY WINE

 

Time stands still in a front room in early ’95.

The telly is on but the sound is off,

All About Eve plays on the stereo,

soft vocal tones and powerful guitar.

The clock says a time but that doesn’t matter

as here it is timeless.

Bev drinks a glass of wine

while I have the rest of the bottle

and a full bottle of Thunderbirds.
