You Began With Me

Poem By Anji Carter

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
And gave you your first taste of life.
My energy nursed the egg that was you,
Hatching it into the warmth of my womb.
My body opened to let you out into the world,
Where my eyes looked upon you with love for the first time in your life -
And always will.
No matter how far you go from me in this life -
You began with me!

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.
