It suffocates me

It’s so hard

Weighing me down

My morale is

Making me drown

No matter what

I try to do

It suffocates me

Like super glue

Down my throat

Clogging my nose

No way to stop it

That’s how it goes

Help

I want to cry

I can’t understand why

I want to breathe

I feel I will die

I want to see

Can’t open my eyes

Dont want to suffer

Time goes by

I feel sadder now

Can’t stop this gloom

Its overwhelming

Cannot pull through

I can’t be alone

Not in this room

Help me please

What do I do?

Tell me your secret

Maybe I didn’t know

What your secret was

What you have been hiding

Only just because

Your darkest little thing

That you keep to yourself

Thinking about you all the time

And nobody else

But you forget I know you

And I know when you lie

You cannot hide it from me

I can see it in your eyes

Go on spill it now

Tell me what it is

Let it off your chest

You owe me at least this

Erica and the boy

An angel was sweet

As sweet as can be

She loved a boy

Who hid in a tree

He would hide each day

That cute little one

Hiding from dad

As there was not mum

He would cry and speak

Aloud to himself

He would arrange his comics

Up high on his shelf

A to z

With so much care

Such precision

He liked to stare

Did this mean he was different

Maybe a bit

Did it matter?

Of course not you twit

He was so special

As the angel would see

She would guide him

Keep him happy

She liked his words

Oh so kind

Reflected thoughts

Taking his time

Touching his thoughts

The angel would sing

Feeding him joy

From deep within

What is your name?

My angel, my love

Erica, I am yours

Never give up

Childhood · family · New work

I have never seen the snow

I have never seen the snow

Until this cold cold day

Fluttering gently

Through smeared windows

Oh so beautiful

Daddy putting on my gloves

Smiling to himself

What are you thinking?

Why do I need such a big coat?

Will it chill my hands?

He pulls down my warm pink beanie

And covers my ears

His words are muffled now

He kisses me on the bridge of my nose

Opening the door he ushers me out

Into the magical snowstorm

I am in awe

Such magic in the cool crisp air

Silence surrounding me

I look up and feel the flakes

Onto my nose

I open my mouth

I love snow

Please never stop

Love our children

Sometimes when we have had a really bad day

Its nice to get home, see your family and play

I like colouring with her, even though I’m colour blind

It doesn’t bother her, she really does not mind

Playing video games with my son, to see his joy

It makes me happy seing him smile, oh my boy

My favourite time at the moment is at night

Reading to my daughter, wonderful books, such a delight

It is the little things that help us through our days

We all have our methods, they are all the right ways

Love them as you can, give them a great big hug

Let them know your feelings, show them your love

I just want to breathe

At the moment

I think we would like to breathe

I think we have given up

As we have to heed

We watch the news

And check the stats

How many more deaths

Staring at that fact

Vaccines now going around

The change is slow

We have to be patient

That’s how it goes

Maybe there is a chance

That soon we may be free

Not to protect ourselves

How good would that be?

family · Life

Cousin Peter – hospital

I finally spoke with a friendly voice

That knows my cousin well

Turns out he was in hospital

Before the covid spell

But this voice doesn’t know

Anymore than me

And I’m going to have to dig

If I want to be freed

Burdened by the unknown

Only holding on to hope

Time is my only option

Call it an escape rope

My next steps that I’ll make

May provide something

And stop adding to this book

Because I’m really missing him

Muffled by masks when drinking our beers
