For Today

We live in a world that encourages us to be fake, to put on masks, to hide who we are and put up barriers between ourselves and the rest of the world.

Here you lie


Soaking in the sunshine and the dust

All yellow and glow, in a world you know not

 Your folds wild in the wind. Soft in the rain. Still in the dark. 

I want to take you home where you’ll lie


At one with my heart

For Us

           I loved the quiet

  The warmth. The sea.

 Watching you breathe


 The shadows close in

 The wind whispers

          “I am here to stay”

 The blue hills stretch along the horizon

 The lonely star sits in the dark

Distant, yet so close

          I am losing my mind

To the traces of you

Left in my coffee.

We sat drinking our tea in silence, not looking at each other. Presently the shadow would pass. We would push it as far down as we can. And, in a little while perhaps, we would touch hands and smile. And, by stages, we would go back to being young and happy in love.
