Sheila sat on her bed.
School was a bore.
Benny was there,
but nothing happened.

We sat at lunch time
recess on the sports field,
but nothing. Others were
there: girls together or

boys playing football.
I felt all odd inside
being next to him.
Wanted to kiss him,

but I didn't I just sat
next to him listening
to him talk. How I got
through the boring lessons

without getting told off
I don't know. My mind
wasn't in it. Just Benny
in my thoughts. Those hazel

eyes of his. That quiff
of hair. That smile like
that Elvis I've seen in
newspapers. Be dinner soon.

Mum moaned about my room
when I came in just now.
So untidy she said. I wonder
if I will kiss him tomorrow.

Unless it rains and we are
stuck in during recess.
Sheila's mother called her
for dinner. Sheila stood up

and carried her thoughts
of Benny with her down
the stairs to dinner. Sometimes
it felt as if Benny was in her.

When I see her smiling,
She makes me smile too
She is not just cute & innocent,
She is pretty & beautiful too

My emotions are connected now,
With her heart and her feeling
She found me, when I was wounded
And she was there for my healing

Please post your feedback.

Yochana didn't look happy
when I saw her
in class
Monday morning.

Her friend Angela
sat next to her
and was whispering words
to her.

I sat next to Rennie
at the back.

He was talking
about his weekend
and football.

I was taking in
Yochana's back,
picturing it
as I was next to her
in the guest's bed
that Saturday night.

Her parents asleep
in their room.

She had crept
into the guest's room
and climbed into bed
beside me.

I wondered if
her parents
had found out
and that was why
she was so unhappy.

Miss G came into
the classroom
and the talking stopped
and we sat up straight.

I tried to push
Yochana and her parents
from my mind,
pushing ahead
with the lesson
after registration.

But it was like
the blind
leading the blind.

I'll be counting down the days
until I see you again
until I'm looking into your eyes
with nothing in between

I'll be thinking about you
until I get off the plane
until I run into your arms
until there's nothing in between

I miss a lot of people right now, whether because of physical distance or emotional distance. I had a dream about seeing them again.

John caught up
with Elaine
just before
morning break
as they came past
an empty classroom.

He took her hand
and dragged her in
closing the door
behind them.

What if
someone comes?
She said.

They won't,
he said.

She looked around
the classroom,
then back at him.

What did you
bring me
in here for?
She said.

You said
I could kiss
you later,
he said,
now is later.

But here?
She said.

Why not
no one here
to see us,
he said.

She looked at him,
at his hazel eyes
and brown quiff
of hair.

He stood
gazing at her:
well?
He said.

She leaned forward
and kissed him
on the cheek.

He held her
close to him.

She sensed
his hands
about her.

He kissed her lips,
held so close.

She could feel
his heart beat
as well as hers.

He released her.

She felt all odd
like waking up
from a strange dream.

She felt as if
it wasn't real.

He said:
can I kiss
you again?

She nodded
and he drew her close,
kissed her again.

Outside against
the windowpane
the start of rain.

A BOY AND GIRL AT HIGH SCHOOL IN 1962.

She's a haute couture girl, who dates haute couture guys
With jaw lines so defined
Might as well just be a knife.

She's a haute couture girl but
He's more haute than her
Cheekbones on their own
Are causing a society stir.

They are haute couture hotties
Almost political
Coats and leather jackets
Lace and buckskin intervals

They are haute couture darlings
And they might just be icons
Sunglasses, Onassis
Dressing just like a Don.

They are haute.
Smoking haute.

Fashion is fantastic, I'm a big fan of plastic.

Night stars
Passing cars
They all go by as blurs
Lying here
Next to her
I felt at peace
As if nothing could ever come between us.
Her arm around me
face inches away from mine.
I could feel her breathing against my skin.
I love you I whisper as we lay her.
I can see her eyes in the dark.
Her beautiful blue-green eyes.
Staring into mine.
I love you too she whispers back.
At that moment I know exactly where I'm supposed to be.
Anywhere including her and me.
We are meant to be together.
Like the day with the night.
Without one there isn't balance.
Night must eventually go away for the sun to rise.
And the sun must go down for night to come around.
Together they work together creating a cycle.
A cycle of balance.
Without her my life would have no balance.
She is my night
I am her day.
Night stars...
Passing cars...
Always meant to stay...

At peace with her

I thought of Yiska
all through
double maths

thought of us
at midday break
behind
the science block

kissing and petting
until some teacher
banged
on the window
of the science block
and shooed us away
with a wave
of his hand

the maths teacher
wrote sums
on the black board
in white chalk

I copied down
and so did Reynard
he scribing
in his thin
penned script

I mused
on Yiska
beside me
on the wall

her lips on mine
her hands about me
my hands
about her waist

bang bang
on class
the teacher
stern faced
waving us off

just as I touched
her ass.

I'm in the front row at your show
watching you strum along to the song
you said was about me;

my hair sticks to my face
and covers my eyes
but I can still see
that's it's about her
