Flossing my teeth

the bits between them

remind me:

despite life’s goings-on

you remain

here in thought.

You were pretty


and how you ignored me! 114 more words


Monsters of Our Nightmares

Never did I realise,
How magical sunsets could be.
A warning, perhaps, or a reprise
Of the moon’s light reflected on the sea.

Have I ever told you, 63 more words


Nothing of the ordinary

Sometimes I wonder if you ever think of me,
Remember afternoons we spent together.
Your silence goes so well with grieve and distance,
Are memories not lies in many ways? 39 more words


Confessions like such.

I see you.
Your smile. Your Kindness. Your intelligence.
So close, yet so far-
yet you make my hair jump
and make my heart skip a beat. 105 more words


sometimes :: sheenagh pugh

Sometimes things don’t go, after all,
from bad to worse. Some years, muscadel
faces down frost; green thrives; the crops don’t fail,
sometimes a man aims high, and all goes well. 65 more words



Creatures, so savage

Ferocious, but can be tamed

They love their masters

More than humans love humans

Who are the real animals?
