The June playlist was going to be extremely different, but as we haven’t had a lot of sun the past week or two, I thought I should write post a slightly different one.
So spring is coming to an end, if it’s not already finished, and summer is being welcomed. For us Brits, it means we have 5% more chance of not having rain. And occasionally there’ll be some of sun, here and there. To be honest, this week’s weather has been great, and the focus says that this bank holiday weekend is going to great as well.
(The author has given permission for their poem to be posted)
Silence isn’t always golden.
Wrapped in a cocoon of layered thoughts, the tongue is silenced.
You teach bad blood,
You teach death.
You teach men to run away from themselves.
I went to the Caribbean and fell for a sea mermaid.
Her skin was clear and smooth like pearls.
It was not her light that drew me,
but the darkness that I dwell.
I hate the term “love”, because it means that it was the dark place that I fell.
And from me that I leaked like a well.
