Where Are You Now?

Poem By Anji Carter

Where are you now,
My gallant knight?
With all your shining armour bright,
Resplendent, on your steed of white.
Who with a sharp and gleaming sword,
Would come to rescue at a word, this damsel,
If you should observe
She needed you?

Where pray are you?
That noble lord,
Whose lady I had planned to be?
Whose every wish would be to serve
This maid, who so enraptured thee,
Who with her grace
Had captured thee?
So long ago.

I lost you!
Hard it sometimes seems.
You are an old
Forgotten dream,
From days when I was still naïve.
And never could I now conceive
Just how one should address, receive,
A Knight of girlish dreams!

No matter how far you go from me in this life -
You began with me.
My breaths gave you your first taste of air,
My heart pumped my blood into your veins

Sometimes my mind can feel so strange,
An endless teeming mountain range.
A snow of thoughts, falling swift,
Into chasms, into drifts.

I'Ve Learnt How To Walk In The Sunshine

I've learned how to walk in the sunshine,
There's plenty for any who try.
The curtains are open, it's daytime,
There's not much to see in the night.


These strange confused contusions, are they a part of me?
And if they are, then why are they?
I have a mind that runs at tangents, tying itself in knots,
It's always getting lost.

Mercury Is The Moment

Will I be drawn by what I knew before?
Life is a whirlpool, I am very small.
Dreams are like clouds, evaporate too soon.
They carry thoughts and aspirations,

Sweet Baby Sugar-Lips

Sweet baby 'Sugar Lips',
His minuscule Lolita.
Coaxing kisses,
