I’ve been writing lots of poetry in recent months due to being inspired by people and the world around me. Things which have been bubbling to the surface and needing to breathe, have forced its way out.
April is poetry month and I have been actively participating in the Dirty Thirty (one poem every day for 30 days in April).
Truth be told, most of my work has been filled with profanities but this one was written whilst contemplating my parents and is one I would like to share with you:
Never to rise nor set
Your luminous hearts fixed
Watching in abject silence
Epithets eternally emblazoned
Within and upon your earthly kin
Eternally through the promised premise
Incandescent in dogging darkness
