Susan Alldred Lugton Poems

Sleep oh blessed sleep,
the place where I can dream,
of all that I do need


the resounding echo
to one’s new reality.
Existing in time,

They came together in love,
chrystallised genes.
They did not know,
that a baby might grow

If I dared to let someone in
perhaps it might damage my soul.
My fear, would I then be whole?
I muse a little, but who knows,

He loved her and she loved him,
His kisses sucked out her whole past and future or tried to
He had no other appetite
She bit him, she gnawed him she sucked

A decision made
after long years of doubt.
Killed off inside.
life’s pleasures locked out.

The new morality,
It's called infidelity.
Sex just a commodity,
universal disloyalty.

She waved her tiny hand that day,
and went outside to play.
As darkness came and chill set in,
they could not hear her footsteps say

Shame, that cursed killing shame,
cascading into flooding tears.
Feelings, is it me to blame?
Shame, the knife that cuts, that sears.

Chemistry learned at school,
with the bunsen burner.
Then appeared a new rule,
a new type of burner.

The best space to play
is in one's own mind,
that curious place
where we all can say

Shame, that cursed killing shame,
cascading into flooding tears.
Feelings, it is me to blame.
shame, the knife, cutting that sears.

I dream of fairies
When I'm about to shatter.
I dream of fairies,
for they tell me I matter.

the bane of our own existence.
When we let it go,
and we really know who we are,

Their mother and fathers were too damaged to hear.
Their mothers and fathers were too busy to hear.
Their mothers and fathers were too depressed to hear.
Their little boys and girls were not allowed to cry,

You are hiding my dear
because your are frightened,
What now,
when there is nothing to fear?

The three forces of Eros,
bind us together.
Sexual, physical,
love, emotional,

Alas she had thought,
death come to me.
My happiness gone,
no longer strong.

Happiness, illusion,
born out of confusion,

You meet,
and its sweet

Susan Alldred Lugton Biography

'lets just cut to the chase' I write poems when I feel like it usually quickly. Hope you like some of them, or at least they touch something inside you If I have done that there must be a point to some of my ramblings.

As a psychologist and a woman in middle age I write from personal experience and professional work. I hear the best and the worst, rarely the middle ground But thats life, the ying and the yang. The main thing is to remain creative and poetry is something I always come back to. Somehow it expresses and heals the soul and sometimes the heart. It keeps me learning about myself. I live in Nelson New Zealand. A nice sunny little town with lots of nationalities English American Dutch and of course New Zealanders who have lived here all there lives and we all know what that means

Sleep oh blessed sleep,

I have read a couple of poems written by Susan Alldred Lugton and found then quite interesting and nicely carved. The subjects have been taken from our daily life and have been treated with aesthetic care. Her poetry presents a mosaic of different shades of human nature that one learns from experience. I wish her good health and many more years of creative writing.

Hi! As a silly-billy myself, loved your sillyness poem, and wanted to suggest: 'so sweetly' for one of the 'completely' s; and in the last line 'for forty winks'... Michael
