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.

Steps in the dark

Sleeping alone tonight
She has gone
The tiny note
She left full
Of tiny words written
By her tiny hand
A memory to caress
All I have in
My lonely night
I need water
I choke
I stumble in the dark
I fall
I still hear her steps
Her tiny steps
In the dark
Are you ok daddy?

Revenge

A moment of anger
A desire of pain
To hurt

Passes unrecognised

A child in between
A baby unborn
To end

Passes unrecognised

The revenge of
Consumed souls
In love and hate

Discarded a blooded sheet

The innocent moon withers
The loving stars fade

Discarded the memories
We had
In a moment passed

An angel lands
With broken wings
To cry

A weeping angel
A child’s call
In pain

Passes unrecognised.

Wall map

Thousands of lines
Run through the fabric
Covering a plain wall
Plain with no ceilings
The lines are blurred and
Coloured
Borders remain
Strong reminder of
Divide invented
Strangers of the same
Yet
Beautifully ornamented
Thousands of lines
Run through the surface
Imagined
Yet
Realistic
Contradiction of past-now
Map on the wall
Stares back at me and
I wonder between which lines
You are?
