Lights In The Sky

Before they launch, We would Find one another In the dark Suspended in amber Amidst a throng of witnesses As they whispered Hopes Fears There are lights in the sky But in the end If it were too dark to read I would just want to look At you For the First Last Time TheContinue reading “Lights In The Sky”

White Ribbons

It’s almost tension After a fashion, But, it makes me crumble a little Just to walk into the room And see you, Testing me and how strong you make me Wishing this moment would Last forever And tomorrow, we will return To ourselves But tonight My hands My mouth are glacial warm whispers And here,Continue reading “White Ribbons”

Hideous Talks

They happen, Tentative in so much as they’re heralded By pockets of cautious silence Not the same as confessions to lovers, More a sense of testing the brotherhood You’ve grown to appreciate There are things us men, Won’t tell you, No matter how often you ask, Because you cannot know Nor take the Burden fromContinue reading “Hideous Talks”

Beatrice, On Departure

Beatrice sat in the departure lounge. She had allowed herself a soy latte, decaf after she had her vitamin drip. She looked up from her phone, appalled and excited to see if anyone recognised her.
