Just me.

Just me.

Sunday, 23 December 2012

My new poem about choosing between losing your sight or hearing. Pretty easy choice for me, but what would you choose?

Oh, there is so much music
in Silence
She's my friend. She is.
I can hear
the emptiness of your words
the shallows of my smiles
all sounds of this clutter and
the Big Unnecessary of my existence

But to lose sight?

Life is about light
Life is about colours
Life is about moving away form darkness
seeing my mother's ageing face.
