Slept In Clothes

Poem By Alc Harris

Knees all soft and baggy
Skin all warm and clamy
with eyes half open
legs like concrete
shoes still on feet
to the hallway
where we meet
In our slept in clothes

Comments about Slept In Clothes

Great use of rhyme again... such a natural flow... I love this.. very visual! I think this is my favourate!
Nicely written. Hope you don't mind but as I was reading it I couldn't help saying 'where we meet... in our clothes we sleep.'
like the poem, you got a way of writing words like pictures, meaning i can see the point very well.........................

Forgotten Kisses

If I forgot the warmth of sun on my face
would you open the windows
bring light into this place..
If I forgot the tenderness of lovers kiss


There lived a man up on a hill
The locals did not bid him ill
But playground whispers of this one
Who kept his offspring in the sun

Angels Embrace

I wrap you about me
whenever I sleep
Like the arms of my Angel
and gently I weep

Faded Flower

Take down the wind chimes you hung in the hall
To catch our dreams lest they fall
Take down the pictures and sit here a while
With beautiful faces beautiful smiles


Sometimes as I sit here all alone
Through these pages I do roam
Songs of passion, loves lament
Of vampires, witches, devils torment


I read in the dailies
Marmite on toast is a work of art
sculpted and shaped
to appear almost lifelike.
