Poem a day challenge #100 (Reality)

Reality

By Scott Bailey © 2013

No reality.
That’s what attracts them
No history, no baggage
Only dreams of the night
That’s the attraction of the mistresses,
the hookers and the one night stands.
No reality.

Better to live in real love
Than empty dreams

Poem a day challenge #98 (Divine)

Divine

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Imagine
Me
I kill without discrimination
for race, for age, for sex or sexuality
I take saints and sinners
I take your loved ones
in return
I deal you pain
without explanation
when asked
the answer is
that you cannot hope to understand me
As a man
you would lock me up
revile me
or label me insane
But I am divine
So that’s OK then

Poem a day challenge #85 (Who’s the Fool)

Who’s the Fool

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Listen to all the anger
Hark at all the fury
Just remember that
You no longer own the jury

Humiliate the whistleblower
Make him out a fool
Wielding propaganda
Like an old blunt tool

Don’t you know we’re cynics now
We can see through all the lies
You will have to do much better
Or suffer the surprise.

Wonder Shore

Back from the shore
Into my arms.
After an explore
In a world of charms

A world full of wonder
Mystery and fun
Of beaches and crabs
And space to run

Breathing salty air
Hearing laughter ring
Dancing without a care
Of what tomorrow may bring

So dance some more my son
Enjoy the sun and sea
When the day is done
Run back home to me

Poem a day challenge #69 (Through the Glass) (Villanelle)

Through the Glass (Villanelle)

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Slowly the shadows pass
As memories retreat and fade
Passing beyond the glass 

Like springtime budding grass
New joys together are made
Slowly the shadows pass 

This pain we will surpass
And sunbeams will cascade
Passing beyond the glass 

Though sometimes the shattered glass
Will cut us like a blade
Slowly the shadows pass 

New light will surely trespass
On the lawn that we have made
Passing beyond the glass 

Those memories we can’t bypass
But their colour has finally greyed
Slowly the shadows pass
Passing beyond the glass
