Your Day Spent With You

The moment has arrived,
Your day,
The one you’ve looked forward to,
And dreaded.

Never doubted you,
Not for a second,
Your hard work and diligence.
A day for you,
The day has come,
And tall you’ll shine.

A show to the world, and yourself.
Only wished I could spend it with you.
All leading to this moment.

Your moment,
Your time,
Never to be forgotten.

Your hard work shown,
A time for your recognition.
Only wishing to spend it with you.

To live the moment with you,
The feelings,
The care.

The time in the making.
Your time,
I wished I could make it better.

No matter,
I’ll be there,
In spirit, compassion and support.

Your day, wanting to spend it with you.

Kindness Out of Nowhere

Kindness out of nowhere,
The kindness that comes, out of nowhere
Out of place, but in total kindness.
Random and surprising.
A sense of comraderie,
Solidarity.

The kindness of another,
For another.

Surprise at its form,
A sense of help, and of care.
From a stranger,
For help.

This kindness,
For everyone to follow.
To help.
Whatever capacity it may take,
Mere kindness to be seen,
To be felt,
To be kept and continued.

A care for everyone.
In the form, any form.

A kindness out of nowhere.


Context, I came across a wounded wild rabbit, out of nowhere a group of people came and stayed, to help in whatever way they could. In the end I phoned the RSPCA, and by that point someone else came and out of nowhere offered to take it to a vet. Kindness. Kindness to be rewarded.

Looking Up In Wonder

Looking up in wonder,
The night sky glistening,
The next day to come,
Its bright light just waiting over the horizon.

That light ahead,
The day ahead,
A world waiting for fruition.
The golden skies ahead.

The bright shroud of day.
The mere moments of the bright.
Those times to make you laugh and smile.

The comfort of a wonderful day,
Waiting for the moments,
As they come,
So small yet significant.
Grins of wonderous glee.

The times made for the taking,
For the making.

Oh how the world is bright.
Brilliantly wonderous.

Just over the horizon,
As I wait in anticipation,
Living today as it😆’s amazing.

The bright and golden times.
The spotlight in the making,
An iconic making,
Mine for the taking.

All the fears and worries brushed aside.
Reminded by the glistening lights all around.

A wonderous day to come.

Looking up in wonder,
In awestruck amazement.

Looking up in wonder at my making,
The world bright ahead.
The golden threat of wonder.

A amazing light.

Looking up in wonder.

Gentle Reminder

The gentle reminder,
All found in place,
That gentle reminder.

The world gone bright,
The times to come.

The reminder comes,
In those bright days,
And the dark of night.
All to come,
Worth the wait,
Worth the while.

A gentle reminder.
Those fondest of memories.
The beautiful times.
To last a lifetime.
To hold onto.
To cherish.

Worth the struggles and the pain.
Worth the fondness,
To send an occasional message.
To brighten my day,
And another’s.

The gentle reminder,
The brighter day,
Memories, hopes and determination.

Thoughts unable to comprehend.
Happiness in unknown form, unknown quantities.

The beauty, behind the sunrise.
Of a blossoming flower,
Of the deepest purple of dusk.

Oh how is such beauty made real,
This world shown to me.

The possibilities open.
A path unknown,
Yet also clear.

This gentle reminder of being,
Of feeling
Of making.

This gentle reminder.

My gentle reminder.

Fighting The Demons

Fighting off the demons,
The corrupting influences,
A dark force to throw off.
A bringer of only suffering.

A powerless entity,
As I drain them of all power,
Collect my life,
Make it my own.
Bring on the coming future.
Casting out the corruption.

Detoxifying my life of all the darkness,
That the demons use to cling hold,
I’ve found freedom from the darkness.
Claimed light for my own.

Many pieces coming together,
Forming a whole,
Forming coherency,
And a brightness not seen in a while.

Such a long time I was in the dark,
Having lost the light.
Being broken, lost, hurt and inflictng what the demons taught me.
To be cast off,
I now have choice, agency.
To cast out corruption,
To throw the demons aside.

Here I fight,
To claim a happiness once lost.
To find peace, in a tumultous world.
To find love in all things pure,
As it has found me in the unexpected places.

The demons now have no hold.
Yet they will be, an ever-formative part.
Kept in check.
But having made me stronger,
Made me wiser.
Given me great pain.
I will keep them in check,
Cast them out.

Fighting these demons. I win.
Living the life I have found.
Fighting off the demons that still seek to destroy me.

Fighting off the demons.

Poetry and One Year On

Hello everyone,

Wished I was feeling in better spirits when writing this, but can’t help it. I’m glad WordPress told me it’s my one year anniversary on WordPress, honestly cannot believe it’s been a year.

So much has happened, so much has changed.

I have been through a lot, lots of stuff has changed, lots of things all running through my head.

Poetry has made it all much more bearable, even being a compulsion of mine, something I intend to continue, so long as I have feelings to describe, understand and make sense of.

Thank you to all the good people who have had many kind words to say about my work, kind people who listened, read, messaged me and gave me kind messages!

If I had known today was the anniversary, 15 minutes before the day was over and with work in 6 hours I would have planned something larger. Maybe tomorrow.

But thanks to everyone.
Helping me when I was trapped in a dark place.

Finally found a way out.

Still get good and bad days as everyone does and will so long as you’re human. But I’m moving along, better, even despite being sad tonight, have a great friend to hold on to, hold out for and hang out with.

My studies are going really well, confirmation of an aim I’ve had for a long while and committed to it fully.

My close friend helped me (unknowingly) find a better work-life balance, writing positive poetry, but they showed me. The positive things to see.

Things will go up and down.
Things will at times be difficult.

But I can.

All my WordPress family I believe in, no matter what you are going through, I hope and wish you well. To fight your demons as I have fought mine.

On a side note, feeling slightly better after writing this, found the words to a poem I had the title for, and thought of another while writing this!

The Lonely Silence Of The Dark

Lonely silence of the dark,
The dark days gone past,
Those yet to come,

Waiting for those light days, the ones to look forward to.
To hope for,
To live for.

When the darkness of the night is all around,
With silence as the figure lurking in the dark.
The depths of night.
An impenetrable shroud;
Thick, dark, all-consuming.
Suffocating at a touch.

The feeling of life,
The memories returning,
But only for a time.
The deep sadness,
To accompany the lonely silence of the dark.

Beautiful Mind

Your beautiful mind,
A world encapsulated,
Pretty and intelligent,
A beautiful mind and kind.

Open, free and radiant.
Funny,
Even to force a smile out of me.

Gentle to the touch,
Deep and thoughtful.

Beauty unquestionable,
Most important,
The mind and heart of gold.
A mind open, smart and capturing.
A heart, kind, sweet and deep.

A beautiful mind,
Trapped in a world-
Unable to compete.

The kindness there,
Worth waiting for,
Left to make my own way,
Hoping for the next day,
To see you, hear your voice.

Here I am,
Happy.
Even when losing my way,
I think back to you,
Your beautiful mind,
The advice you gave.

Oh how I’m stuck in wonder,
At your beautiful mind.

Memories Remaining

Memories remaining,
The images intact and golden.
This bright future,
Golden times ahead.
What I want.

To hold,
To show,
To care,
Ever wanting to care and hold,
To be there,
To hold in times of need,
To be there.
To care and be.

To try and to hold.
To try and be with.
To show how you have made.

How you have.
Who you are.
How it was.
Those times.

You.
Just you.
I cannot explain.
Cannot show.
Cannot think.

You.
How those memories remain.
They keep and hold onto me.

How they grab hold and take me.

How they remain and hold onto me.

Kind Heart

That kind heart,
The warm smile,
The flow of your hair,

The times,
We laughed, smiled and talked.
Shared personal thoughts, feelings and ideas.

And I couldn’t help,
Falling in love,
Not knowing what happened,
Where did this change,
Why the feeling.

Months apart and feeling no different.
A single message, to brighten my day,

Your skills, talents and intellect.
Blow me away,
Have me dragged into a trance.

Making me want to be a better person
Making the day brighter,
Helping me to let it continue.
Positivly looking at the world.

Oh, how I want to give you all my kindness,
All my care, compassion and effort.
Oh what a kind heart,
Enough to knock me off my feet.

Oh what a kind heart.
