Pt 3 - Drenched Again

Poem By Jane Sparkes

Drenched again from emotions wasted and paths washed away by footsteps ill trodden.
Tomorrows will come come by then be past this stifling fog and the torrid weight of regret.
Wonder, full of longing no more as glistening lenses see through roads unlit into lightness. Dare to fly again, set free torn plans, scarred nerves and died loves.
To see me find in a different place the face you never expected.
Changed to a stranger, grown away, let go and for what?
Say farewell and did onto further planes of expectation finding unfamiliar and freshness quickly soured.
Yes, come find me in a different place, familiar strangely illuminated sensations unknown as feathers on glass.
Tread lightly less we wake to zones of indifference
Speak softly with tones to drown greyness and shade of clarity where idols ruined now ruined to pale.
Shifting stillness, an unending dullness, find no fire through the clarity of despair within the void.
Missing oblivion of hope fueled fantasy gone for what?
Who tells the bird to fly free only the caged, but the warm and the safe.

The longer I am
The more I know
The less I know
Was what I thought

If You Look After Me

If you look after me
I’ll be a good companion
I will stand in a stable and look forward to the food you bring
I will ignore my urge to wander, to roam

End It Now

If I end it now, before its dead
He'll remember it fondly
To herself, she said.

Stranger Passing Through

See you stranger with your eyes that measure, take notes and absorb my reality.
A strange place discovered, call it middle ground or no-mans land.
Funny that where no man treads a woman is safe but unaffected, no woman wants this anonymity, this vacuum.
So onwards into new regions we wander.

Suddenly Single

Rolling down my cheeks the tears
Shoulders shaking, the pain sears
Burning heart with hurt and fear
Anguish reigns now you're not near.

The Sting In Your Tail

Fly with me said the honey bee
Hour by hour set your heart free
Feel our love, trust our harmony,
The futures bright for you and me
