I'm Charlotte, I am 22 and a new poet. Experimenting with the style and substance of my work. I live between London and New York. Seeking improvement in my writing. Comments and critique are welcome!


New York City. To live in New York is danger enough, But to work and to twist, wears limbs weak; To seek truth from a stone with a texture so rough, Leaves the flags chance of rising, pale and bleak. Talk of gun shots on east 17th quakes knees, But forgotten when prancing to his place, Gin fuels swims in littered subway seas, As the city shaves and carves it’s own race. New York is a Lady for all who can dream, and she’ll rip to small pieces your young plan, But I will be torn and tweaked at the seams, If the delegate to repair is my man. So long as she stands cruel callous and tall, This american stranger will be my all.

Hello Ms Brogan (no relation to Steve from Liverpool perchance?) Thanks for the comment re ''This time on a sunny day'' (time for a title change methinks) I need to tighten up my arguments in the work- as, as always- it's never finished. tommy :)
