Three Little Words | A Poem

I always found it hard

To utter those three little words,

Scared of their power

What they’d become.

I couldn’t allow them to escape,

Captive within my breath

Until your permission

Gave them freedom.

Fading Star | A Poem

A fickle fragment of failing fortune,

dust and bones wrapped in rags,

old school star of stage and screen.

Lights went out,

the curtain fell

for the last time.

Escape to the Sun | A Poem

Feet

Dissolve into scrolling white sands

Eyes

Fall upon crystal clear waters

Ears

Discover the whispering breeze

Hands

Absorb the heat of the midday sun

Heart

Captures the moment in one beat.

Silent Strength | A Poem

Fear not, strength find, and dignity shall keep

Prepare for a test of the mind and heart.

Love strong, keep close, and your courage deep,

When everything tries to pull you apart.

Life Isn’t Fair | A Poem

In a flicker of a moment, all we knew had gone away

The dust left there before us in the harsh cold light of day

No reasoning, nor common sense, no way of understanding why

Accept, we must, which cards are dealt, as the hands of time tick by.

Heart of the Wishing Well | A Poem

Follow me, I have a secret to tell

It waits in the heart of the wishing well.

This garden hides faeries, but bogeymen too.

So I am going to share this one with you.

Take a look down, lean over some more

Stare into the darkness right down to the floor.

Listen carefully so this won’t be forgotten.

“Tell me what you find, when you fall to the bottom”.

Sometimes | A Poetic Tribute

After hearing about the extremely sad news of Robin Williams passing early this morning, it struck a chord with me personally. Depression has many levels and affects many many people in different ways. Some people cope…some…don’t. I was inspired to write a small piece of poetry in honour of an amazing man who brought so much, to so many.

 

Sometimes it’s a desperation, sometimes it’s a head full of lead.

Sometimes it’s a endless nightmare, sometimes you’d rather be dead.

Sometimes it’s a saddened heart, sometimes it’s a distorted mind.

Sometimes it’s a fear within you, sometimes it’s a daily grind.

Sometimes you just can’t explain it, sometimes it’s always there.

Sometimes you let it beat you, sometimes it isn’t fair.

But sometimes the days are lighter, sometimes the fog does clear

And sometimes the love of others reminds us why we’re still here.
