Treading gingerly

‘Round shattered thoughts

The serrated shards

Of fractured memories

Stinging barbs of

Splintered dreams

My fragmented conscious

A minefield of pain


For when you cleaved my heart

In two


You left me also

Music Box – A Haiku


The notes that pour from

My music box heart form a

Plaintive melody.

This will likely be my last post before I disappear on holiday for a week – in case anyone wonders about my absence! I can’t wait to swap the brisk British weather for some scintillating Spanish sunshine 🙂 See you all in October!
