Snippets from current editing of poems

From “Suddenly Awake”

You stood naked

While you waited…..

And while you ached inside

You washed yourself and dried

And found somewhere to hide

The towel and the nightdress

 

From “Stress”

Thoughts jump in panic

Heart beat quickens

But outwardly the body

Repeats expected tasks

And soldiers on

….Words plucked from ends of nerves

whistle round and through

never touching, never uttered

By the outward senses….

 

From “Circles”

….And yes, I love the life that I have now

But not the speed with which it seems to go

Without me even moving, doing nothing, day by day

The world that spins ignores me, as if it doesn’t know
