Stanley Collymore Poems
Get Real! Get A Life!
Is it really possible to fall in love with someone you’ve never
met that in actuality you’ve never even seen other than
trading selective photographs with them on Facebook
and whose sole means of communication between
the two of you consists of online chats actively
pushing personal narratives that even if they’re
not totally narcissistic in nature nevertheless
rely heavily on the hyperbolic promotion
of one’s self in practically every respect
while paying scant regard, if any at all,
to what is actually the stark truth about
yourself, that lets face...
The Luxury Of Hindsight!
Would I really want to change anything
if I had the chance to live my life all over again? My
honest answer, with the full benefit of hindsight, is yes -
I most certainly would! For there’s the egalitarian period
I went through, thinking that all I ever had to do -
apart from being responsible and good - was to
be my usual self with others; and, therefore,
they’d not only understand but, more
importantly, appreciate as well
