I'Ve Learnt How To Walk In The Sunshine

Poem By Anji Carter

I've learned how to walk in the sunshine,
There's plenty for any who try.
The curtains are open, it's daytime,
There's not much to see in the night.
Shimmering in the day bright,
The shafted light high in its beams,
Yesterday's shadows can't hide it,
There's something that waits to be seen.
The bench is so cold and so wooden,
Scraping the backs of my knees.
The chill of the iron, curving my palms,
And flowers can cause me to sneeze.
Sitting out here on the sidelines,
Or hiding away in the stands,
Resting awhile in the shadows,
Thinking of far away lands.
Waiting for time to start healing,
For what was once broken, to mend.
For ‘Laughter' to sit down beside me,
And ‘Happiness' tell me we're friends.

You Began With Me

No matter how far you go from me in this life -
You began with me.
My breaths gave you your first taste of air,
My heart pumped my blood into your veins

The Seasons Of Thought

Sometimes my mind can feel so strange,
An endless teeming mountain range.
A snow of thoughts, falling swift,
Into chasms, into drifts.


These strange confused contusions, are they a part of me?
And if they are, then why are they?
I have a mind that runs at tangents, tying itself in knots,
It's always getting lost.

Mercury Is The Moment

Will I be drawn by what I knew before?
Life is a whirlpool, I am very small.
Dreams are like clouds, evaporate too soon.
They carry thoughts and aspirations,

Sweet Baby Sugar-Lips

Sweet baby 'Sugar Lips',
His minuscule Lolita.
Coaxing kisses,
