Light, love & laughter. And when it works, rhyme.


Here’s my poem for you, my today. You are my sunlight squeezed shut eyelids in the morning. My mellow, midday sadness like breathing in heaviness. My shivering fingertips, quivering lips as what used to be my favorite, falls white and blinding like loudness expressed in cold. You are my warm days turned to exhaustion, beating on me like anger and a sickness for home. My emptiness, like a bottle poured contents out but still no room for more. You are my mindless thoughts. And my more mindful expression. Emotion like waves, and your coming and going, the tide. You are my late drives home soaked in sadness and streetlight. Blurred lines seeming yellow and screaming a different color. You are my tired feet, getting home with swollen eyes and feverish hands. You are my music too loud, background music, blaring, bleeding but my rhythm. Most days my drumbeat was your hand on my back. You are my sleeplessness, and the dreaming when it does come. You are my vision blurring, static. My memory, my musty, forgotten, sweet smelling attic filled with what remains of a photograph. You are rain being good. And darkness being comfort. Here’s my poem for you, my yesterday.

they were lonely birds
but exchanged no words
it was their desire
but weren't admired

the world was strange
but they couldn't manage
they sang in loneliness
but brought joy to the face

how could they unite?
and force the passion to ignite
but they remain delighted
as and when the scene of love was sighted

there is joy in silence
and cash it on when getting the chance
love is a divine gift
so make no shift

enjoy and try to meet
love each other and affectionately greet
it may pay one day
when you will have your sway

Hello Sarah, a quick few words to say how much I like your biography. For some reason it has made an impact on me. Perhaps because I hold these things dear as well. Thank you. Keith

Welcome to WOL. You certainly sound like a well-rounded young lady who will have many avenues to explore through your writing. A sense of 'wonder' is surely the most essential gift a poet can have. And then - application.
