Adrian Murphy

Rookie (March 1968 / Northern Ireland)

Biography of Adrian Murphy

I am born and bred in Northern Ireland, attending school and University here and now work as an accountant in the Northern Ireland Civil Service.

While I have always loved literature and poetry, I found only the courage to write my own poems quite recently - partly as a form of self therapy as my marriage of 20 years ended in March 2009.

As time has passed, I find that words and poems seem the most natural way of expressing my thoughts and feelings about life.

Hopefully you will appreciate what you read.

Fools Gold

An autumn dew lay heavy on the grass that somber morning
The commotion of the night before burned into our history
Angry voices lost in emotion, frustration exploding into destruction
Sirens steaming through the New Hampshire night

“She doesn’t believe I love her! ” repeated tearfully
All I wanted was for it to end that night – but I lived on
Heads hung in shame we left the hospital
The enormity of it all dragging inexorably behind us
