I’M JUST SO PASSIVE

Trolling all the restaurants and the takeaways on the high street
Whiffing all the smells of the cooking, but: never stopping to eat

Easy don't come easy.


When I think back to what we had,
It breaks my heart and makes me sad, 
Not because we said goodbye, 
Just because we didn't try.

A love that's true is worth the fight, 
Not just let it drift...Read More

Am I the only one

Urban Decay
Relic of a raucous night's revel
In an empty shop doorway
Stands a solitary cider bottle sentinel

Bundles of bedding. Beneath 
Huddles a barely visible body
Whom I have to skirt around

Shop windows blacked out and blinded
With nothing to offer but silence

How will they remember us
How will they remember us 
Those born after the war. 
What will they say about us.

Our denial of simple pleasures to our children,
Not letting them know the joy of completing a...Read More

Nights Out
Disco dreams and disco balls 
Big city,bright lights 
Pub crawls and bar fights. 
Mini frocks and hair dyes 
Made up faces 
Mascara filled eyes. 
Vodka martinis and champagne 
Bus trips and black cabs 
Standing in the rain. 
Nightclubs and deejays...Read More
