Lying in the sun.
Dozing, beginning to drift
                                       ever higher.
Looking down at myself,
                                       trying hard
                                                     to remember
what I came here for.
                               Only blankness.

Lying in the sun.
There's a hole in the sky
                                     light streaming in.
I can see Heaven from where I am.
A man I love lives there,
was never in my life,
                               neither did he love me.
Who is to blame?

Aah, this precious sunshine!
                 I am hot and feverish.
The sun is scorching
                               and my breathing is laboured.
Overhead is space.
Oh there is so much I've lost.
Burn on, pale skin.
I'll be dust too,
                     and like him,
                                       find peace...

A curtain drawn.
                        Retail therapy.
Sleep like a log.
                                      Trying not to think.
I feel like getting blotto,
                                    fill a glass.
Fed up running from delusion
                                             going nowhere.
On a crowded train,
                            no one smiles or says "Hi."
Then I arrive and meet a guy -
                                            he hangs on to my every word.
He wears your face.
He's yearned for me as you never did.
He asks me to stay.
"I'll make everything alright,"
                                            he softly whispers.
"No, I can't," I reply,
                              "there is someone else..."
And my mind is racing.
"Let's go out then?"
    "What's wrong?
                          I don't understand...
where is this other guy?"
                                  I shake my head.
What can I say?
                      And I reply,
"He's in my Soul."


  1. __ Grand "Y", of the sun. So often morning suns can bring mourning; the mind image.

    mind image
    that love of my soul
    mourning light

    that crest of new light
    risen with each day

    1. Many thanks, Anthony.
      And yes, an awesome force, the Sun...when it's obscured by cloud we're all miserable...when it's in full control we're at risk of being seriously burned...;))
