I Never

Poem By Khalid Mansour Saleh

I never want to see your eyes water
I never want to see your mouth turn upside down
I never want to see you alone
I never want to see you hurt

Your hugs will always lift me higher
Your eyes will always tell the truth
Your mouth will move, to speak the words
The words that mean the world

Any words from you can make the birds sing
The world happier and make the saddest of people smile
We all share a common factor of smiling
So come on say these words, so for one split moment,
The world can smile.

Sitting at the beach watching the waves
I hear the bird sing, I realise you spoke
To me they sound like poetry
Like Shakespeare and Keates
To everyone else, they are just word spoken,
By a person, who shines inside.

To feel those words around your head
Feels like the moment can last forever
To give you the strength to seize the day
If only for tomorrow, we will stay.

These last words to you and I
I speak with love and affection

Blairs Britian.

Drawing the blood, watching it drip
The rich colour, like a satin sheet.
The warmth, the comfort, the blood.
Do I feel alive?

Spring Sonnet

My head is like a fresh spring day
Too many emotions, to express at the same time
The beauty of each one, forces the heart to betray
To keep these inside away from you is a murderous crime

Escape Of A Con Artist

To you I must say I’m sorry
But there is no more you and no more me.
I really did think it was plain to see
That maybe me and you were never meant to be


Take a look outside your window
What do you see?
people? trees? Cars? houses?
All normal everyday things

Without poetry there would be no love
no understanding, no deeper meaning.
Without poetry there would be no music
nothing to think back on, nothing to remind us.
