    Now is when I will tuck your hand into mine, reach over and cross your scarf once more. Now I will ruck up your sleeve and draw frozen mice with my fingers, running down the inside of your elbow Now I shall step on your toes so I am the same height, and then, also now, I will breathe on your f...

    There is an exquisite lightness in your eyes; it settles in your crows feet and cuts a high angle across your cheekbone, sharpening on the arch of your brow until it is almost solid, warmth radiating out like an aura of risk a forge ready to melt an outstretched metal hand; reform it int...

    Time is slipping, shipping away glorious moments And I can see the lights, I can smell the buds Of last May, when my friends all gathered under the Tipsy umbrella, wobbling in the breeze. They Looked so happy – groups of chatter and passionate debate and -   Now the lawn is overgr...

    Sleep evades me this night Tauntingly it stays Just out of reach; On the tips of my eyelashes Slyly, it hovers Heavy, hanging on to the edges Of my eyelids. Tonight   Sleep does not deign to let me dream....

    The proclivity is there unspoken (maybe mentioned by spoken silence and a few perky responses met with awkward silence) raking its way from the nether regions of the brain numbing (not denying, but not encouraging, just kind of suppressing, impressing as Not Important) but it is (it is ...

    Glisten, glisten; listen to the rain outside the winds that howl, the cold that bites shadows rearing up in fright with images of barking dogs, whose noses fill the mind with slimy smells of watered land and grass that's green and all the while you; glisten, glisten in the dar...

    Let lights be stark To forthright Shadows lie, squandered in the dark Should all ye hark at break of dawn, when faded is the light Let lights be stark The innocent remark, For we who travel free of fright Shadows lie squandered, in the dark. When moonlight rises, a warning bark Will ...

    Your anger is a bit like beef stew Chunky hunks of anger that you chew on deliberately Chopped-potato-feelings that you sardonically, constantly review Carrot slices of resentment crop up sometimes, long overdue, Adorned with spicy regretful filigree Oh yes, I'd say your anger is a bit l...

    And I remember Fred - In the dying of the night - because he's dead. A girl walks past with small steps, beloved, With starlight Reflected in her eyes, and I remember Fred; I remember how he had often fled - no shining armour for this reclusive knight, And I wonder if I see him in t...

    I shouldn't be here, you say with a frown marring the contours of your hair. I wouldn't do that, If I were you, I'd do it a thousand times over just to prove I could. I'd be here every day with a muffin and a sly grin because I've climbed into a locked-door room though The window was open ...

    Wings stiff in rigor mortis, Though still – so soft! – too soft To feel at all, the impression of touching gained by sight, Legs splayed upon the ground. No butterfly is this – for it does not flutter – by The concrete rough and grey, pebbled, mossed and mudded Is no f...

    You told me, my love, that you'd carry my heart (within mine, you said, I carry your heart with me I carry it in my heart, you said), that whatever you do, and wherever you go so will I (and oh how you smiled, with your smug little smirk, so pleased with yourself that your dimples could burst)...

    Fallen leaves litter the ground Broken and crumpled, Strewn across the paving. In spring they grew from small, green, curled up bundles, In summer they unfurled and flourished Metamorphosing into shades of vivid orange and dull, burnt brown As autumn approached crisply, with dewy and frostbi...

    Eyes closed, she felt at the world. The faint drumbeats from a song played softly in the corner vibrated in her ears, and all around her was the sound of tapping, clicks and exaggerated coughs. The loud whirr of the C.O.W.s provided a soothing background, and if she let herself relax, she would sens...
