Tweeting drama

Hope you’re all well. I’ve been away a lot recently and writing. A new novel is in the works as is an anthology of short stories. But look here, it’s my collection of poems, all contemporary. Happy reading!

Tweeting drama

A little bird appears, so innocent, so tempting.

Why not give it a go?

Something new

 

1,2,3. It’s that easy

Now what?

The little bird suggests

 

Soon following new people

Some interesting, others not so

Stalk away, everybody’s at it.

Rumours and lies

Rumours people start

Lies follow

Never knowing who they hurt

Never knowing what they’re saying

Today, it’s him

Tomorrow, it will be you

Sometimes, we laugh

Sometimes, we cry

It’s all part of the act, you tell me

Then rage, when it gets too close

They want to get so close, too close

They go on, not  knowing the truth

The truth is ours, our reality.


Forever may not be long enough

“Forever is the most dizzying word in the English language. The idea of staying in one place forever was like standing at the border of a foreign country, peering over the fence and trying to imagine what life might be like on the other side, and life on the other side was frankly unimaginable.”

Emily St John Mandel ( Last night in Montreal)
