A morsel of you

I reflect on what we might have  been

had things been different

life’s unforseen,twists and turns

following fates convuluted hand

I had a glimpse or  a dream

of a different future – built on sand


Would we have been greater in pairing

 or a disaster that fate has been kind in sparing

our paths met, then diverged, adding richness 

loneliness and sadness in the parting

leaving a layer of learning which must add growth

or is this but a hollow dream


What I am yet to become

will be due to singular striving

Happiness and fulfillment

 in this life needs work and dedication

I reflect on what is now

what might have been I disallow


Another world, another life, we might be bliss

Until then I gather life and fulfill my destiny

 unable to be blue living life to the full

only more so because I shared a morsel with you.

A megabyte of madness 

A megabyte of madness – A Villanelle
You became a megabyte of madness

Since we met life’s never been the same

We frankly share happiness and sadness
No false catechism staunches blackness

We listen truly and do not shame

You became a megabyte of madness
We share our secrets with a cheerfulness

Plus a tut or maybe two, but never blame

We frankly share happiness and sadness
Friends across the ether, so priceless

Fate introduced us on a word game

You became a megabyte of madness
We highlight most of our flaws, with bluntness

But you cheer me when my world is aflame

We frankly share happiness and sadness
To say we are in love would be baseless

A different emotion we sustain

You became a megabyte of madness

We frankly share happiness and sadness

Padlocked Love.

Padlocked Love
So many padlocks

Locked with so much love

Each locked compartment

Bursting at the seams

Once upon a time

 the symbol of fidelity

Lovers clipped them to a rail

Threw away the key
Thousands of padlocks 

Sitting in a row

A sign of relationships

Waiting time to grow

Years pass by and the

world begins to tarnish

Locked to the rail

With no hint of varnish
Could we view those couples

Starting off brand new 

Ten years on how many

Are still true

Are they welded close

Like the padlock on the rail

Or split assunder the lock

All atrail?

Escape

Escape
I shut out the  dark cloud of words.     

circling like birds above my head        

reverberating  penetrating                

 piercing like  swords, injury by harsh

 sounds  cruel intent                                       
Silence  now my best defence         

this no time to mount                      

a counterarguement

it will only cause offence

 I need to save my sanity                     

 in serenity                                             
Face and body language neutral

I release calmness                      

focus on the harmless sound.   

of the house those

small comforting noises

welcome in the dark of the 

night or the eye of the storm 
My spirit is  not broken

I will survive anger without blows

I am wrapped in my tranquility

floating in a bubble roaming         

free from fear 

my submission is just remission      

Until I can escape

Life has moved on updated

Here is the first version of this Pantoun I have since reworked        it please see the second version any thoughts if either works?

        I flutter and fly like a trapped butterfly

Commitment I promised it wasn’t a lie

While life has moved your love I  still crave

It applies throughout life into the grave

Commitment, I promised it wasn’t a lie

I tried to stay true but you said goodbye

It applies throughout life into the grave 

Once word is given it shouldn’t enslave

I stayed true but you said goodbye

Needs, change the picture I understand why

Once word is given, it should not enslave

We should try to honour it  be strong and brave

Needs change the picture I understand why

You need to move on although I shall cry

Though we should try to honour it, be strong and brave

Throw out  commitment, morality waive

You need to move on although I shall cry

I will find a way, to fly in the sky

Throw out commitment morality waive

I keep my values my sanity to save

I will find a way to fly in the sky

While life has moved your love I still crave

I keep my values my sanity to save

I flutter and fly like a trapped butterfly.
Written in the form Pantoum .

Version 2.
I flutter and fly like a trapped butterfly

The commitment you  promised was a big lie

Now you have gone your love I  still crave

It will probably stay till I go to my grave
The commitment, you promised was a big lie

I wanted to stay true but you said goodbye

It will probably stay till I go to my grave 

Although a love once given, shouldn’t be betrayed
I wanted to stay true but you said goodbye

You changed the picture I don’t understand why

Although a love once given, shouldn’t be betrayed

We should try to honour it  be strong and brave
You changed the picture I don’t understand why

You left with such bitterness it’s hard to justify 

Though we should try to honour it, be strong and brave

There comes a time with sadness our feelings to waive
You left with such bitterness it’s hard to justify

I need to rebuild my life and just quantify

There comes a time with sadness our feelings to waive

The old life with you has nothing to save
I need to rebuild my life and just quantify

Now you have gone your love I still crave

But the old life with you has nothing to save

I flutter and fly like a freed butterfly

Relationships normal chain

The bubble has been burst

Will that be the worst

Life gets in the way

Almost every day

Changes put a strain 

On relationships normal chain

He/she can make you sad

Also make you mad

Love is but a guide

You cannot run and hide
What is this nebulous thing

The emotion that pulls our string

Attraction, sex and lust

May well just go bust

The underlying theme

That makes our eternal dream

Is a perfect symbosis 

With absolutely no neurosis

Its a rare and perfect beast

Easy to become deceased.
