Pain.


From time to time I
think of you. How much
we could have given
to the world
together with our almost

love – yes
You,
Me,
Us.
There never was.

From the very start,

that could’ve been framed
forever in the ceiling.

of you. Im so tired
of being
held captive.

Im so sick -
like I’ve been
punched in the chest with
eyes forced
to leak
hot, salty tears;
veins twist
migraine kicks as
I curl in my bed
under the sheets. I’m
still cold,

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
