Born
conjoined
lived as one
haunted, they cry
for a better life
hiding in dark spaces
they dream of how they might be
if only they had been born as one
in a world of possibilities
their crying can still be heard to this day…

Can You Hear Her… #Poetry

Can you hear her crying late at night?
Over the loud music, I hear her tears
You and I watch as she carries her pain
Nothing we do can change the beat of time
Tomorrow, the clouds remain dark, full of tears
Down the rabbit hole, the music has a merry beat
Over the river, sits the King on his throne
Waiting to greet new visitors to carry their tears
Evening starlight removes her pain
Never again, would her tears last through the night…

Do you remember, we do it again…? #Poetry

Do you remember, we do it again…?


Evening murmurs breaking the silence
Do you remember the shape of my body?
The sound of my voice
Does your mind hurt
Thinking back to the first time
The kiss that stole our breath
How did we end up tip toeing over stars?
Looking down at age that passed
Leaving us grey haired
Holding hands walking through the light
Greeted by long forgotten faces
With star light in their hair
Looking back at a life
We would live again…

Good morning Peeps… Jaye here!

I was really pleased with the amount of work/reading I did over the weekend, patting myself on the back and everything!

In the cold light of day, (and it was chilly this morning) I realised I had not written a post for today…

Luckily, Anita had… (and this one made me cry…)
