Sonnet: A Mother

A daughter, sister, friend and a lover, She was all of this before a mother. From a child she became a woman grown Her precious time was rarely spent alone.   Inherently passionate and caring, Above all else she was kind and sharing, Of her love, her time and all she could give, Through the...

Sonnet: A. Trip

Chewing on minuscule squares of paper, How long will it be before it kicks in? Too late now, just wait for it to begin. All too soon you are lost to this caper.   It comes, like all good things, to those who wait Slowly at first, a peripheral haze, Then colours and visuals steal... Continue Reading →

Sonnet: Looking for Love

Looking for love in all the wrong places, Swiping right on all of the same faces. Asking questions getting one-word answers, It’s a social media disaster.   Whatever happened to love at first sight?

Who would rather her people never wake,   Her ill-thought plan an untested half-bake, Her appetite for greed will never sate. Isn’t it time to make the Torries wait? Why are we rushing...

Sonnet: Happy Anniversary

How many times did I say, ‘I love you?’ Clearly it wasn’t enough for either, A fight for love, a fight for us? Neither, We fought each other with fierce words untrue.   I once said that I would look after you, I did not mean to be a deceiver. In me you were never... Continue Reading →

Sonnet: A Family in Need

I seem to sleep when I should be awake, I dream rather than live reality. Unconsciousness offers me amnesty, From duty, and the decisions I make   One after another. I fear a break, In our relationship. I disagree, And so I must fight you to guarantee My family get all that they can take.... Continue Reading →
