Mirror

I'm not sure where she's been hiding, these past few years, Her bubble and spark seem diminished, replaced with hot tears, Her life appears somewhat frozen, in the mist of his mirror, She attempts to gain clarity, to view things a little clearer. In her heart, his name inscribed, it spelt out 'forever', Her love for him ran so deep [...]

Vicarious

Fingers entwined, roots of borrowed trees, Love so fierce, brought to her knees, Thought provoking, rumbustious words, A numinous feeling, Magic words left unheard, Fuliginous air with natures TV, that embellish chilled nights, Elysian themed dreams, ravelled with lust and her sight, Tortuous emotions, and the beauty of their tale, Luxurious liners, no pirates, one [...]

I Loved You Once

Absolutely beautiful

loveletterstoaghost

I loved you once
under fake stars
and an alcohol haze,
our bodies not understanding
the desire between us.
We talked like the night
would last forever,

knowing it never would.

I fell in love with you twice
across phone wires
and postage stamps,
your laughter ringing
in my head.
We talked like we’d never
see each other again,

hoping that wasn’t true.

I fell in love with you three times
among blue waves
and warm days,
my heart leading me
to your arms.
We talked like it was
the beginning,

dreaming that it would never end.

I love you still,
beyond years
and miles between.
Our ghosts follow
us around,
and we pretend
not to notice how

we never talk anymore.

October 13th 2016 minus my kidney

24 hours before hell took hold. I look excited in this picture, the last supper, pre-surgery, pre-nephrectomy, supping on a beautiful glass of our 'tage, the last for probably a very long time. Enjoying sweet moments of nostalgia with each delightful sip. Surgery was at last here. I'm not moaning. I needed this surgery. I've [...]

Under the Twisted Willow

Under curly branches, had our first date, Kissing, gay lanterns and staying up late, Stars a'twinkling like sparkly little "mince pies", Hand in hand we lay and watched the sun rise, Stay with me, MJ and not forgetting the  Magic, Our choice in music was somewhat tragic, You had me back then, in the palm [...]

Another lifetime, hey?

You wrote to me once, a poem I think (after hours of searching I've found it filed deep in "that" folder), saying that you didn't like to leave things unfinished. More recently we have both made reference to something we said after our initial short Summer fling ended in 2014, something I guess I've clung [...]

A rather Radical Nephrectomy

I walked out of the hospital into the blazing sunshine. 31 degrees of sunshine,  loaded up, with an NHS shopping bag full to bursting, with the next months concoction of drugs and nutrition drinks that I would need to consume in the days ahead of my surgery. My mind is whizzing, I feel like I've [...]
