Biography of Jack Ashenden

Jack Ashenden poet

A tortured Love and a Fractured Mind
bringing dark memories, present truth, alive
and while you, and others, a meaning may find
something beyond understanding will survive

What you read is not of me, but of another -
that part of our soul we'd rather forget -
but that all attempts cannot smother,
nor leave us without deep affect

I'll leave you now to consider all that I've thought
and perhaps something worthwhile I will have taught…

Immortal?

Though time may decay your youthful features,
and dark nicotine lines furrow your brow,
your smile will remain like the miniatures
you create with infallible know how.
Though wracked with the horrid pain of old age
our legs may keel and our arms lose strength,
your inner power will remain on page,
a testament to those who loved a friend.
Amazing futures lie ahead for us
