2 October 2010



there’s the tenderest vibration 
of laughter’s unheard echo 
the emptied out sensation 
of rooms now left hollow
and something fragile vacillates 
between happiness and sorrow 
something now is missing 
some subtle nuance fled
it's something nearly tangible 
that burns inside my head 
as half remembered passages 
in a book that I once read 

The End


  1. yes, like when i left -
    when i left him
    and when i left him
    i left me
    in that
    something now missing...
    that burns
    head..." my heart -
    something that "...left
    a shadow..." -
    a shadow without the
    promise of tomorrow -

    you, sir, have walked the same path as i - beautifully thought and written! beautifully!

  2. Thank you Gypsywoman you appreciative remarks are gratefully received, especially as they come from some-one I know really can write.

  5. It's a pleasure to do a little to help you out, What I have gained from your friendship over twenty -odd years, is beyond compare. Sure you have your Demons, but plenty of Angels too.
    I could never judge you.
    You have; without exception, always treated me as a cherished friend;
    I think no less of you.
    Great to see you with a voice to the world. People are listening.
    It's not always a happy tale, but they ring true.
    Thank You.

  6. You know me Ian - there's no room in my pockets for poesies.

  8. Hi! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I
    came to look it over. I'm definitely loving the information. I'm book-marking and will be
    tweeting this to my followers! Great blog and amazing style and design.

    Feel free to surf to my web blog - Suggested Internet page

  9. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was
    super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your
    blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything.
    Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers?
    I'd genuinely appreciate it.

    1. Always write from the heart my friend - do not censor yourself or try to bend your words to suit an approving audience. No holds barred - utter honesty - that is what I propose - that is what I believe is at the heart of good technique...
