Goodnight Sighs

Lay back Chill out Relax Recount As dusk Descends Day at Its end The wine The girl The light Her curls Perfect Embrace Forget Rat race And life Does sigh Goodnight Goodbye


Worlds tumble about me in free fall, Stars flipping from vertical to horizontal, Myriad flashes in a pinprick night. The universe contracts and expands, Whilst I stand at its centre unmoved. Am I reliving the beginning, Or witnessing the end? And, in truth, Do I even care? Unless, of course, it is I that hurtle through all, A broken spoke in the cosmic wheel. How do […]


 There is no requirement for oxygen,  No need for air, nor the use of lungs,  When the two concerned lie breathless.  It is in such sublime moments with biology beaten,  And physics sidestepped, that life truly feels complete.

 It was less than a whisper More than a ghost Close to the West wind Mist on the coast A voice that asked me The question I feared ‘Do you still love me?’ The vapour it neared I wanted to run Silently scream But came realisation  That it wasn’t a dream So I sucked in a breath But by then girl had gone And all I was left […]
