How many memories will vanish?

How many memories will vanish?

How many memories will vanish?

Making googly noises in your chair.

Sticky mess in your hair.

Wondering around aimlessly like there’s no cares.

How many memory’s vanish right there?

A kiss on the forehead.

Holding hands, grab my finger.

Summers day plans.

How many memories die right there?

First steps, first word, which first comes first,

First day of school.

First blown raspberry across the room.

How many memories will vanish again?

First bus journey, first trip on a train.

First time skipping.

First dance in the rain.

How many memory’s washed away?

Our first locket like memory’s inside.

Yours might fade.

Mine I’ll pride.

No Rewind.

No rewind.

19/06/2018

A light goes out behind their eyes.

That’s what it’s like to watch them die.

It leaves a mark right here inside that shimmers and lights then fails to hide,

And it leaves other things inside.

Be good, be strong, love, be kind.

We don’t live forever, there is no rewind.

The shoulder of the girl next door.

The shoulder of the girl next door.

What we like to plant doesn’t fruit for the seed is never watered.

I’ll say no more just wilt and wonder until they’re older.

Then who knows the nature of another’s shoulder?

Until I’m older.

Balloons on the water.

Balloons on the water.

Balloons set free like parts of the ego.

Released independently lighter and more fluid in motion,

cascading marbles drift out over the ocean.

White lights of bright daylight as the sun bites a reminder to hold tight.

This rotating cannonball in one swoop could clear us all.

River Balloons

06/11/17

The river runs wild, tepid and tame.

The river runs open thinner and shared.

The river runs broader, wider and famed.

The river runs danger, calmer with games.

The river runs,

and it’s always the same.
