Deep Within

Poem By Scarborough Gypsy

Once again alone and lost,
This empty feeling is the cost
Of many regrets and dreams I’ve tossed
Onto the heap of mental compost,
This wasn’t the way I meant it to be,
I’d hoped that today, I would be free
From burden and hurt that obviously
Was the root of evil caused by me,
So many dreams that I’ve thrown away,
I asked you to go, when I should have said stay,
I learnt my lesson too late in the day,
And guilt is the price that I have to pay.

As I read your poetry, I find myself enjoying it more and more. I like the way you express yourself - honest and to the point. avr
Excellent depth. It pulled me right in as I was reading it. You have a way of zeroing in on the core, the source of pain. I pray it's healing for you to write. It's healing for me to read it.
These are poignant words that have a wealth of meaning and regret, cleverly and tastefully put together.

Forty Is An 'F' Word

I look into the mirror
By accident these days
For it’s not my own reflection
That meets my startled gaze

In invisible ink

Love In A Teacup

Shop of curiosity, dimly lit within
wall to wall and floor to ceiling,

I lay awake in my bed
Awaiting only sleep

Stopped – and then went BEEEEP!

Alcohol Abuse Is Not An Addiction

Am so afraid of how you feel
Listening to what you’ve said
Chills me to the bone
Our whole existence is on shaky ground
