Our Bed

Poem By Sallie Howson

And when I wake
And you are gone
I place
My hand
On the pillow
Where your head
Lay.

I bury
My face
In the sheets
And catch
Your smell
Still
Clinging there.

The bed
Refuses
To give up hope
Of your
Homecoming
But I
Know better.

There’s no
Return
From where
You’ve gone.
No welcome back
No happy ending
Just…………space.

But
I’ll leave
The bed
It’s dreams.
It’s memories
Of romantic nights
And bed delights.

I
Won’t be the one
Who rips the
Bed clothes
From it’s grip
And
Washes
You
Away.

Death Of A Poem

Shot down in its prime.
Shot down
While making daisy chains in the park
For little girls to be daisy queens.

Jealousy

I’m not jealous
But I know what I saw.
It all started last night
At the restaurant,

The Old Man In My Bed

I woke this morning to find
An old man in my bed.
Short grey halo
Surrounding his bald head,

Foreigner In Italy

They love my skin.
“Sweet, sweet brown sugar”,
They say
Their hands running down my back.

Dancing In The Rain.

Knock, knock
On the window.
Two fat raindrops
Calling me out.

Don’t Ask If I Miss You.

Don’t ask me if I miss you.
I’m not some schoolgirl
Who’s lost her mobile phone.
Thumb still twitching
