thoughts well
To write words over and over
To explain what it feels to love you
To express what you mean to me

No words can be enough for that
And so I always end up erasing them

Richard Smith
Am I see through
Or am I seen
Does anyone remember
The places I’ve been
The deeds all done
From past to present
Are they noticed
Most likely forgotten
Over time
Your actions erased
Even if mentioned
Met with a confused face
 Mar 2021 Tanya
I’ll still be around
When your born again!

Bill Adair
And the countries called,
Seductive heroism,
And the young men came.

And their mothers sang
Songs of woe, Lieder von Leid.
And the young men served.

And the people wept,
Tears a universal tongue,
As the young men died.
This poem was first used a few years ago at a Remembrance Sunday Service.

she said
I am numb

my soul does
not feel

I accept

as inevitable
my dog is

neutered or

I can’t eat
raw meat

it makes
me sick

she said
you are not

the animal
I married

drunk on you
 Feb 2020 Tanya
your name is
forbidden in
my mouth
or in my heart
because when
i think about

i'll cry a little more,
hurt a little stronger
love a little softer
because you no longer
make me feel sober

i'm drunk on the
memory of you
if only i could chase you with pizza but shots don't work like that

Perfect Match
 Jan 2020 Tanya
I always thought we were the perfect match.
But matches are meant
                                   to ignite
                                         and burn out.
