1. Searching for you

Should we escape?

We certainly are not the best

When talking of our hurts

We always do just what we do

And everything gets worse


We row and row and never stop

Until we are blue in the face

We never stop to think about

Giving each other some space


When we really need to discuss

We do all we can to evade

When things have gone on surely like this
Is it not time to escape?

  1. It’s really good to see you back, Phil. How have you been? I’ve missed your work. This poem is very poignant. I imagine that words similar to these have been thought of by others in a similar situation to yourself. I can certainly identify with them from a long time ago when I was in a difficult relationship. Take care.

    1. Hi Ellie, I missed our conversations. For the moment I haven’t felt like writing so trying to put all my books poems on my website. Hopefully I will feel like writing again soon. Sometimes motivation and inspiration is hard to come by. It will be back one day. How are you doing?

      1. I think we all go through times and dry periods when we can’t think of anything to write about. I’ve been writing more than usual these last few weeks as I’m dealing with my counselling coming to an unexpected early end. I’ve worked so hard with my current therapist and now I have to go on to a long waiting list to see someone else. The wait is likely to be months rather than weeks and I’m dreading being without that person to talk things through with every week. It’s a frightening time for me. Strangely enough, I’ve written mostly rhyming poetry as opposed to prose for quite some time now. It seems to come quite naturally considering I’ve had a fairly long gap between when I used to write regular poetry until now. I hope you will find your inspiration again soon. I look forward to reading whatever you decide to post when you can.

      2. I hope you find someone suitable sooner than later, you can always chat to me if you need an ear. I don’t think it’s ever something we lose, if it comes easy it is like riding a bike. I always preferred rhyming poetry when I was a child, wouldn’t keep my interest if not. Anyways see you around. Have a good evening.

      3. Thank you, Phil. That’s kind of you. I prefer rhyming poetry these days, too. I used to write a lot of prose, but I definitely have a preference for rhyme nowadays. Hope it’s warmer there than it is here today. Stay well.
