I Lived There for a While – Friday 6th September 2019

I Lived There for a While

i lived there for quite a while
before,
life made planning applications
and redeveloped my smile
everything,
is open to change
personal planning permission
will always rearrange
they knocked down my hope
dynamite explosive,
so much smoke
i lived there for quite a while
with victorian dreams
formed in brick,
to the 1960’s architecture
where designers appeared to miss a trick
i made my poems
dance along its streets
i made my hope play drums
whilst looking for a beat
i made my experience run free
with runners feet
i hoped one day i would settle
grow contented and feel complete
i lived there for quite a while
