I try

I am
not a saint
I try not to swear
but sometimes I do
I try



a black line


A war


The air
Swells with dark clouds
Thunder rumbles and claps
Big, fat drops ping off the glass roof
A war.



a black line


Like the measles


Love happens only once.
Just like the measles
You take it only once
Your heart is a firework
flashing heavenwards

Meteor-like, it blazes for a moment
but bang goes the illusion
"Love conquers all"
Not always
A hoax perhaps
An indulgent delusion definitely
