Somebody

Poem By Mike Tonkin

Who is this woman
Who came into my life
Seemingly
Eons ago,
She is inside me
A constant
That I
Cannot ignore
Electric messages
Pass between us
That is all
And yet,
And yet..
I can’t tell her about
My dreams
But I will sometimes
Wake
In the darkness
Of the night
Sweating and
Trembling
I am alive
And I can smell
The form of her,

I
Can
Never
Remember
My
Dreams

Her pale body
Lies along
The length of me
And she is not a
Stranger
But a part of me.

Your Life Etched In Time

Before you there where women who delighted,
But when you came along you were
The only one, there were not enough
Stars in the sky

I saw it first
When I was five,
It was small,
So small

A Look, Two Eyes

A look. Two eyes
Filled with yearning.
A look. Two eyes
Gently burning

Aberfan

On 21st of October 1966 a tip of coal slurry slid
Into the village of Aberfan and 144 people were
Killed.
Of these 116 were children who were buried

Wandering

Wandering
Aimlessly amongst the trees
And the wet decaying leaves.
Silence.
