Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day

February 14th is Valentine's Day 
So a poem I thought I would write,
To explain about love and how to find
Mister or Mrs Right.

For some, love happens instantly 
After meeting for the first time,
Heart skips a beat, butterfly effect
These feelings inside! Oh sublime.

But let's take a moment to ponder
About love and Valentine's Day,
A day when you show your true fee...

Paper Hearts

entry picture

Paper hearts don't beat

They tear

Of Valentine's?

He was not aware

All she wanted

Was a rose of red

But spending money

Brought him dread

She rolls her eyes

And looks above

As he tells of how

She has his love

These words sound


Said without cost

That was the day

Her love

He lost

Then came the 14th day

Of Feb

A new lover she found

Stupid Cupid

entry picture

I see you lurking about
making him say 
sweet nothings
to lure me out.

This time 
I am being smart,
walling off 
my broken heart.

Using your 
flaming arrows
to paint the sky.

Let the world know
you are really 
not a nice guy.

You are a trickster
who makes girls cry
with your stupid lies.

My schooled soul 
knows the truth

Romantic love
is an illusion,

Wardrobe Mistress - '85

Wardrobe Mistress - '85


I stood in front

of the wardrobe

we shared

and stared.


I had just seen her

with overalls down

below her knees,


your familiar

bare bum



Its thrusting

only previously seen

in awkward twisting



Your shirts and tees

hang between

pink and lime,

purple & olives,


shady gre...

7 poems for Valentine's Day

entry picture

My New Year's resolution was to learn how to 'sound' my poems so I could share them on the internet.

I've done it - although I'm a beginner, I posted my first attempts on my Wordpress Blog as 7 Poems for Valentine's Day by first posting one poem a day, then finally the sound files.  

You're very welcome to check them out on here:  francesmacaulayforde.wordpress.com

The Gate

entry picture

By : Ali Taha Alnobani


Yesterday she invited me to see the moon in her garden
The wind tried to prevent me
Although I was sad, I walked under the rain
The gate was full of small doors and small cats were looking at me
Their shining eyes told me the tale of my baby
One night she was looking at the moon,
But a big cat with shining eyes got her dreams broken.

One Night I Stole a Purple Balloon


One Night I Stole a Purple Balloon

One night I stole a purple balloon

From a cheaply decorated nightclub

I was pissed out of my mind so it looked pretty

And taking it seemed a good idea.


When I tied it up at home

Like a child decorating for a birthday party

I did not expect it to be there for long: balloons

Tend to run out of air or escape when you lo...
