Street Poetry by me as is the following:

The other day
Like a cloud’s courage
I gently fell in love

With someone
I knew
I had not yet met

It sat unadorned
Just under skin


And I watched

And thought
This love
Might just last a lifetime

    This is what this reminds me of: when you find a lover, the one who lingers on your skin, then you walk the streets, go to work, sit outside in the sunshine on your lunch break, everything is about him, missing him, remembering the moment of his abandonment (this could be read as giving up, surrendering)….

    Which as a love letter is in contract to the leakness on the walls, the brick burning black…. all point to the meaning of abandonment as in leaving…

    I especially love the crosses, how they fall down the wall..

  • Your comments are great. You so get my work. And sometimes you get it even more than me .) x

  • Or at least you put into words elements of what I do which are more subconscious…and subliminal almost. Love it.

    parallellsydney doesn’t roll off the tongue. syndysimile sounds better to me. If you like that, that’s what you’ll be — the first link on my fiction blog!

  • Nice one – then that will I be. Thanks Mr Hand – you are a scholar and a gentleman :)
