John Hayes Poems

Hit Title Date Added
1.
Provenance

Pierced patterns of glittering light
Relentless sentinels of the night
Advent of the end to come
Darkness beckons
...

2.
Vapours

Darkness on the stairway glancing
Always see the figures dancing
Moonlight seems to make them chatter
Up and down they seem to shatter
...

3.
Starstruck

Through swathes of light
We are bound
Transfixed moths
Of the night
...

4.
The Path

Wilderness strikes the heart,
Passion plays from the start,
Between the rivers of the mind
Fortune steps towards unkind
...

5.
Is Love A Sentence?

Structure the sentence
With subject and predicate
Making mere nonsense
Out of quaint etiquette
...

6.
Inside Out

A butterfly
Flutters by
Reminds me
Suddenly
...

7.
Lost

Are you in a dream
When I speak to you
I get the same old answers
When I try to get through
...

8.
Transitory Peace

Oh yes I remember the time
When all was well with me
I would hear the clock chime
After I had had my tea
...

9.
Deliverance

I am drawing pictures in my mind
Painted images of thoughts unkind
I hear the voices of instruction
Steering me towards destruction
...

10.
Utterance

I find that I am always wanting
To express myself in endless taunting
Banter, badgering baited breath
Please oh please don’t mention death
...
