The following poem  “You” is the completion of my very first trilogy.

The first poem being    “Parts of me”

The second    “Heart broken”

(The use of two words is intentional.)


Although posted here at WOL in a relatively short time, these three poems were written several years apart.



Roadworks roadworks in my mind

Excavations’ deep to find

To what’s all this subsidence due?


Digging deep, discovering you.

Hid away from my view

Corroding, eroding, as you do


Surface now good as new

No more roadworks…

                                  No more you!

Hi Kate

The emotional blackmail is the hardest hitting, as it is 'others' who feel the hurt and never ending pain.

Thank you for commenting and your continued support.

Fantastic Po, and I can relate
Nothing quite so undermining as a toxic relationship.

Cheers, Kate

Don Thank you very much for your comment.

Sometimes when we let our guard down the smallest word has such power to wield great hurt.

The first cut is the deepest... but the rest still filp'n hurt mate.

Nice to hear from you
