Better Safe Than Sorry

BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY

Wear my heart on my sleeve
Come hell or high water
I’ve learnt over the years
Better to go short sleeved

Whoever Has Ears (18b)

WHOEVER HAS EARS

Köln Concert
Over and over
With you then
Without you
Music you can rely on
Others … Not so much

Madly In Love (Repost)

MADLY IN LOVE

Her life redrawn as a comic strip … sans comedy.
No longer that dynamic duo. Batteries flat.
Bats in the belfry, robbin’ bewildered senses blind.
And … adrift might best describe it. Hooked, blind and snookered.

…..(He is the one?)

Even lying beside her, not truly here, he lies
oceans away, behind cold fronts, lines of icy bars,
biting winds, squalls of temper, hurricanes of contempt.
Comforts herself with poetry and sweet memories

…..(He is the one!)

that turn to nightmares where he’s drowning, calling her name.
Then she is there, reviving him (mouth to mouth, of course).
Waking to find him gone she recaulks her leaky fancies,
sets her sails for yet another day tacking upwind.

…..(He is the one!)

Eschewing havens, but never her hope, she soldiers on,
soiled sails reduced to tatters, she rows from pole to pole,
trawls the seven seas. Her treasure? Nowhere to be seen.
He has unfurled his true colours: the skull and crossbones.

…..(He is the gone.)

Don’t look a gift horse
In the mouth the saying goes
That’s where the fangs are
But they never tell you that
Or the reason why they don’t

The Kiss

THE KISS

Perhaps you may keep
The silver you have taken
But never the gold

Accidental Betrayals (A Four By Six)

ACCIDENTAL BETRAYALS

Adrift in this jet stream
Futures already gone
No longer remembered
Those unforgettables

Strangers

STRANGERS

The first thing in mind
Always, always: are they safe???
It’s my history

Betrayal

BETRAYAL

You blew my cover
The one person I trusted
So colour me gone

Marriage & The Ex

MARRIAGE & THE EX

A mine field
Mine till I shared it

In search of what?
Trust? Security?

It’s like I say
A mine field

Coasters

COASTERS

We should get out more
Or so our friends advise us
But people out there
Can be so disappointing
So we coast the internet
