Life moments

Agony, anguish- not from pain but

from longing for comfort, love, loyalty

friendship, trust, real truth

Tired of trembling questions

rolled-up fists, quarrels, testy silence

screwed-up nouns, pushy topics

pretentious niceties, fake smiles

limited love, blind love


Steps to ladder to sky

sky, sky, sky

Letters of love to shreds

paper, cut, snip

Trashed secrets traded

for honour

fake, fake, fake

Realisation- feelings are real

cannot be unlearnt, unfelt


Go away!

You don’t negotiate with feelings

They win, and you lose

Or, they lose and you win


Wake up to the dawn or

sleep with the sunrise.
