Despairing, the rain reflects my mood,
I wander aimlessly looking for shelter,
A sign catches my eye,

Out Of Reach

The purple cyclamens bloom.
She's not there to tend them:
They grow awry
Not cultivated as before.

Crazy Eyes

I wrote this poem when a girl at my school got beaten up by other girls after daring to go for a night out to another village near her own.

I left the house looking for fun
My mum shouted out 'Don't be long.'

What Goes Around Comes Around

My son is tall and handsome,
My heart he tries to break
By staying out all night.
'Oh for Heaven's sake........'

Hi Lesley, I enjoyed reading your poems, I especially liked 'Crazy Eyes' with its clever double use of the phrase 'don't be long' and 'don't belong' to represent the 2 ends of the love/hate spectrum.
