Wound – a poem about………

It doesn't matter how much you ignore me, I am inside you and always will be. Carry on trying to cut me out of your skin, You wont succeed as I’m the disease within. With every random incision you bleed, Then stop because I’m not what you need. So wrap your new wound tightly, Before I reappear nightly, To torment you onward towards the end, Living daily in a …

Sprinkles – a poem about……..

As a young boy, I was thrilled by the sprinkles, which cascaded over my ice cream or angel delight. Little drops of sugary colour that illuminated my dessert and brightened my heart, which simply melted, forming new shapes of wonderment. How those days disappeared quickly though.
