Apple light

( This is one of my favourite of my poems ……….)

You’re at the corner of my night screams

drifting from ephemeral sleep

spun sugar tongue cherishes

easing into bedroom murmurs.


Years pass like confetti, whimsical uncountable,

fading in the after wedding rain

words curse, enrapture dignify dilemma

meaning forgotten in the aftermath


Fractures fractal into coloured mirror

deflect a moving face, once known now bemoaned

and materialism sticks like dirt in vacant pocket

grubby under bitten nails.


Where are you in the sticky sleep of silent mornings

just out of sight of body’s cravings, sublime uncreated

a throbbing amputated limb forsaken in the jostling of necessity.


Reality creates it’s own eggshell

we paint with Easter colours

blood hues contused with children’s gold

solid till it cracks exposing sapient tissue.


I’m hypnotised in Universe’s cradle

where the inevitable climaxes with unforgiving waves

corroding inner strata, carving tumuli to smoothed brow.


Are you ready for tomorrow’s brand of humour?

Harsh apple light illuminating characters confusion

till the “Whole” is formed from hidden fragments:


we turn the last time and in that blinding flashlight

dissolve, dismember, yes face to face with one forever

in that luminescent moment we will at last forget to yearn .
