Under-Rated Pleasures

Poem By Maddi Eden

The golden sunlight, on your bed in the morning.
Yawning and stretching in the warm tawny sun
Like a contented purring cat.

A friend's smile, genuine and spontaneous
After an amusing comment you've made
It makes you feel top of the world.

Your favourite song, coming on the radio
And beginning to hum along
It can make your day

A thunderstorm - perhaps this is just me
The thunder, the lightning, the hammering rain
Just makes me feel so alive.

When someone you like a lot (more, maybe, than you care to admit)
Remembers your birthday, even drops a present round
The warm glow inside.

Each to be relished. Love life, while it lasts.

All For Nothing

The sweat on our backs
The blood in our veins
The beat of our hearts.
Pointless, eternal.

So Much More Than Lovely

Your writing
Makes me smile
It's just
So lovely

My Destiny

When I think about it
Long and hard
I think that I’m crazy to stay with you.


Isn't it funny
How when you're in love
Ridiculous things
Have extraordinary meaning?


The label on your jeans
The sheen of your complexion
The length of your nails
