Comments about Melanie Fairhurst
I Remember The Last Words
I remember the last words you ever said to me, to any one
You said it was alright, I didn’t need to help you
You would do it yourself.
You said this with such kindness
You called me your boy
You said you would see me the next day.
I remember the thoughts I had in my dark room
You said it would be alright, but it wasn’t
You didn’t do it yourself.
You said nothing in kindness ever again
You called me your boy for the last time
You never did see me the next day.
I remember the phone call
They told me what had happened
They said you had gone ...
wind tearing at the corners of the sounds.
the pop and crackle of a fire.
the earthy, homely and good smell of the land.
the orderly rows of trees.
followed by mile upon mile of scrub,
wild as can be.
near me thick, comfortable grass.
five or six buildings, white with iron roofs.
mountains and koppies surround me
