Stevie Taite

Rookie (30th January 1973 / Kent, England)


All matter and existence
build from the concept of quark

Everything you need for life
Fits on one Arc

A misty graveyard with just
the song of the Lark

The raving madness that takes hold
and makes you bark

The cutting bluntness
of a succinct remark

Barren, the searing desert.
I fight the urge to disembark

A broken mind, in the shade
of depression, so dark

A winters morn alone
on a bench in an empty park

    the first thing that strick is its schem

    Nice poem Stevie, but in the third from last verse, should that be barren (you've typed barron) ? (Report) Reply
