Mouse

I spent the morning looking for my mouse
I dropped it in the washing basket
Its plastic ears are broken
After
A round of rollercoaster laundry.

I stood there like a child watching
The plastic figure looping in cycles
A cyclone, it reminded me
Of Cyclone the cat chasing
After its tail tormented
By Mouse the mouse!
I was a child and names
Were not my strong…

My thoughts are lost, hypnotised
My mouse is lost
A day is lost
When did it happen
When I became dependent
On plastic mice and heap of wires
Sitting in my kitchen
Mentally homeless
Missing a cat, a mouse, and
A child was I once!

Her path

The moon sits
Between two mountains
Tonight
Shy.

It lights the path
Her hands drew
Her gaze takes
To her pleasuring
Beauty.

I follow mesmerised
Her trail blazing
With desires
And ideals of
Youth.

The moon sits
Between two mountains
Tonight
Shy.

The night expands
And wrap the mountains
With my shadows
I only remember her
Words.

Our walk is long
But pleasant
She holds my hand and gaze
The moon’s light sparkles on the river’s face
Our walk is long
We sit by the river bank and laugh
Her laugh gives me the
World.

The moon sits
Between two mountains
Tonight
Shy.

Bed!

I am still rolling
Between the sheets wet
Sweating all night

I am still hugging
Tightly the pillow seeking
Comfort.

I am denied in the
Land of dreams a place
Waiting the
Sharp piercing of the
Morning in
Denial of the night before
Scared.

I remain in bed
Taking refuge from my fears and
Pain.

I remain in bed
Cowardice act of self-
Pity.

They say

When the sky
Flies all the way
To the other side
Of the world
To shelter you
From my gaze
That tells you
A profound force
In this world
Unkindly looks upon
The love I have
For you
An opposition
With a proposition
To deny
The composition
Of you and me
How can I stop
Such a grandiose force
To make happy in my arms
And enter paradise
Starring into your eyes
Yet they say
Love conquers all.

Fragments

Saying
Words
There was
There were
Incomplete
Fragmented
And
Thinking
I keep
He is
Lies
Told
She said
Walked
Walking
Away
She said
Walk
I
He
Incomplete
But
Fragmented
Yet
Was a thought
Walked away
Both
We walked
Opposite directions
Fragmented
We remained
Incomplete.

Restart

So my computer at last spoke
Actually complained
It is time to update
It is time to rest
Its message is insistent
Restart!

I refuse
I demand continuation
We are not on a break
It was a trick last time
I played the game
I lost her and years of agonising grief

Restart!
I refuse.

Restart!
She said before leaving
Eventually I realised
I lost her the minute I agreed
To play the game.

Restart!
Fine!
I leave for a cup of coffee
But this time
I leave.

Spring summer

Flowers are debating the
Virtues of smiling in the
Cold
Spring’s sun
Shines unawakened

Flowers are debating the
Virtues of smiling in the
Early
Summer’s light
Burns the eyes

Flowers are debating the
Virtues of smiling in the
Spring
Time passes
Now time to sleep again

The beaming sun is
Perplexed.
