Love Poem

Where have you been since when, first seen? in a pub, drunk and befuddled. on a pitch, wet, be — puddled, who knows ’til now, love’s confusing signals, the sweaty lip, the furrowed brow the dread of each encounter?

But…Read more Death of a thousand Cuts

To That Girl

To that girl, I say, a mystery, you were a secret when I met you I was mute, blundering, tongueless, awestruck and fumbling You were aloof, untouchable, a thought inside my head. Your pretty face, those hazel eyes I let you go, you walked away. You wondered why? he’s such a fool, was it something…Read more To That Girl
