Lonely Girl In A Hostel

Poem By R.M. Alexander

She sits alone
Sipping water in the heat.
Listening to music,
Gently tapping feet.
I wonder where she came from,
How she came to this far land.
In the heat of the jungle,
Where the ocean meets sand.
You can see she is lonely,
As she takes another drag,
Of the ciggarette she pulled,
From her travel-worn old bag.
And with that she walks away,
Never more to be seen by me.
And again I am left wondering why she came,
Who'd she run from? Who'd she come to see?

What I Need

What I need is a cup of coffee.
Strong, Black, Soothing.
My mood is dark,
Darker than the cup in front of me.

The Beauty Of A Beer

The heady scent,
Of a long cold pint.
That first sip,

Pen To Paper

I try to write,
But it's shit.
Again I put pen to paper,
And again I'm dissapointed.


Of flowered fields I cannot write,
nor sunny day or moon-lit night.

But the feeling of being alone,

A Frigid Morning

My face is chapped,
But my body is warm.

Sunrise At Ayer's Rock (Uluru)

Dark and cold,
only silence to be heard.
A moment for pondering,
for self reflection.
