Another Night

Poem By Jane Sparkes

When stillness roams the empty trees which are haunted by shadows of birds.
Inky skies with a torch light lunar finger points to reason beyond all doubt you linger upon my dreaming mind.
Touch my soul with past cliches drifting like tides through dull consciousness.
Reincarnations of loss and joy mix a noxious but heady cocktail in which to drown while rationale is at war with the idyll.
Cooling and singular, a shudder leaves unmistakable tension where serenity was so falsely impressed.
Yet awhile when the tree ghost wake and air filters through dappled dawn mist, all joy is lost to reality. Another day without.

The longer I am
The more I know
The less I know
Was what I thought

If You Look After Me

If you look after me
I’ll be a good companion
I will stand in a stable and look forward to the food you bring
I will ignore my urge to wander, to roam

End It Now

If I end it now, before its dead
He'll remember it fondly
To herself, she said.

Stranger Passing Through

See you stranger with your eyes that measure, take notes and absorb my reality.
A strange place discovered, call it middle ground or no-mans land.
Funny that where no man treads a woman is safe but unaffected, no woman wants this anonymity, this vacuum.
So onwards into new regions we wander.

Suddenly Single

Rolling down my cheeks the tears
Shoulders shaking, the pain sears
Burning heart with hurt and fear
Anguish reigns now you're not near.

The Sting In Your Tail

Fly with me said the honey bee
Hour by hour set your heart free
Feel our love, trust our harmony,
The futures bright for you and me
