Kissing (Deprived Of)

Of course I’m missing kissing…

I miss kissing every day.

I try to think of other things,

But the desire won’t go away.

 

I’m going out for healthy walks,

I’m doing lots of reading.

But when I think about your mouth

It’s not just my heart that’s bleeding.

 

I am obeying the Lockdown,

Big chunks of my life are missing,

But of all the things I’ve sacrificed,

Worst of all… is kissing.

Change

This is a chill Autumn wind.

A wind of change

It dances the golden leaves off the bough

Sweeps me out of arms reach,

Turns friends into strangers.

 

This wind blows through my bones

Shaking loose flotsam

Makes the impossible almost possible

Pushing and yielding, reaching in and out

Becoming more than a lover

 

In this brisk Autumn breeze

Anything could happen

Your life could change for the better

For worse, for nothing for something or other

Only the wind knows

Isle of Wight Pride Theme Poem

I’ve been commissioned to write the theme poem for the Isle of Wight Pride 2018. I’m going to be there all weekend, and and looking forward to being part of the UK National Pride-winning Pride on this beautiful island.


Stepping into our Destiny.

Moving into the light.

Proud to be L.G.B.T.

Here, on the Isle of Wight.

 

Remembering our History.

Poets. Artists. Sailors.

Rooted in this island’s rock,

Farmers. Fighters. Tailors.

 

Celebrating who we are,

Stylish, full of life.

Welcoming Loves diversity

Its harmony and strife

 

Honoring our Community,

And how our lives can be.

The courage and creativity,

Embedded in L.G.B.T.

 

On this day we send a message

To our family worldwide.

Be yourself, you’re beautiful!

There is no need to hide
