This is My Story – Written Monday 6th December 2021 (Aged 46)

This is My Story

several days –
remain beautiful in my memory
spokes of hope
love, just like soap
emotions always like rope
such is the day
because when i first realised –
that power is just a form of cotton candy
there to be corrupted
even there to be devoured
such was the liquid
that poured from my dreams
that i held all my wants hostage
and i yearned for no more screams
this is my story
and like all stories
it is underlined with touch
written in a language –
not that far removed from double dutch
this is the playground
where play is kept within a blue square
and lush are the days
where the coconut shy –
shows deft skill for a craze –
that we do not yet know
and there is a canal boat, a party line
which sadly, we all toe
but this story is all mine
