It started with a cough

He started his day

As he always would

He laced his shoes

And ran through the woods

He listened to music

And felt the breeze

Passing through

The towering trees

On returning home

He panted much

He couldn’t understand

Why it hurt so much?

He thought nothing of it

And shrugged it off

He ran a bath

And washed the sweat off

Kissing his wife

Then his two kids

Not to wake them

God forbid

Ready for work

He got in the car

He coughed hard

And saw stars

He arrived at work

Feeling weird

Dazed and tired

He started to fear

He collapsed on the floor

The others came

Call an ambulance

He is in pain

The ambulance arrived

In their gear

Spaceman suits

Ordering people clear

Took away

Everybody out

Cordoned off

People shout

To the hospital

This poor guy

Can hardly breathe

He can only lie

Put in a bed

Examined, scared

No one close

To love or care

Feeling weak

He can hardly move

Crying now

What can he do?

Put on oxygen

Case getting worse

Family told

They have been cursed

He slips away

To a final sleep

Forgetting family

As they weep

Saving the snake in the flames

A man saw a snake

Surrounded by flames

He tried to help it

Bitten and in pain

.

The man dropped the snake

Back into the fire

He looked around him

His courage to be admired

.

He found a metal bar

The snake wrapped around

He placed the bar down

Carefully to the ground

.

A passer by saw his act

Questioning why he helped

“The snake’s instinct is to bite”

“But I just had to help”

.

My first poetry available for purchase.

Spring haikus

Look at that sunrise
Warming beauty, rays of gold
Allume this grey day

The little boy gave
His hand, whistling while crossing
The road with her

The odeur of them
Seeping through to our nostrils
Flowers blooming spring

Today let’s have a blast

.

I like them moments of silence

Just being alone

Hearing just the clock ticking

In the comfort of my home

.

The fridge whirring

Nothing else

It’s a funny thing

Being by one’s self

.

It’s lonely

Exhilarating too

Daydreaming about the world

What we are about to do

.

No television

No radio

That would spoil it

Not the way to go

.

Just…. Peace

Tranquille as can be

In my little bubble

Free like a tree

.

What will happen

On this day so new

I am so excited

Opposite of feeling blue

.

Just….. Thinking

Reflecting on the past

I am sure today

I’m gonna have a blast

.

Today let’s have a blast

Trust

I can never trust

After what you did

Unforgivable

Your want, now your bid

.

It hurts, cut me deep

I bleed and suffer

Deceitful actions

Can’t trust another

.

Hope you love again

Not only yourself

It would be a shame

To destroy oneself

Her

She don’t want me

Scruffy old me

I’m too skinny, no muscles

I watch as she flees

.

That other guy, he’s fitter

Look at his body, looks

I’m always reading comics

Or my head’s in a book

.

Not interesting, not at all

Like watching pain dry

Just plain old boring

I’m not gonna live a lie

.

She doesn’t notice my hair

My clothes as I try to impress

It seems just like

I’m trying to pass her test

.

I’m sure we like all the same things

Many common interests

If she could only know me

She wouldn’t care about the rest

.

Swallow my overwhelming fear

I’m approaching her, try to talk

I freeze solid in front of her

She smiles, my heart starts to stir

Him

.

He doesn’t want me

I’m not good enough

I’m ugly

Bit of rough

.

Why would he be interested?

I’m not pretty

I’m jealous

Lots of insecurities

.

He won’t even notice me

I don’t even exist

His lips are perfect

Just one kiss

.

He’s ignoring me

No matter how much I try

Do I not exist?

He’s making me cry

.

Am I not even your type?

Not pretty enough for you

Can’t you see my efforts

Invisible shining through

.

Notice me, speak to me please

He’s approaching, what do I do now?

He’s going to say something

I can’t move, have to talk, how?
