Why I should always sleep on stuff

Snapshot_108a

Another poem from my 2011 poetry collection, “Old friend, learn to look behind you in the coffee queue.” Thanks to -K- Lynagh for inviting me over to pose for a shoot, during which I took the picture above.

4:45am
I wil send a letter.
It will spill my anger.
It will be tight.
It will induce guilt.
It will make things better
somehow.

4:50am
I will send a letter.
It will show I’m wronged.
It will show I tried.
It will show I needed.
It will clear my name
somehow.

4:55am
I will send a letter.
It will sneer at choice.
It will show my hardness.
It will shut the door.
It will close my heart
somehow.

8:30am
I will send a letter.
It will say, “I’m sorry”.

  1. Your poem wonderfully sums up how I’ve found being in SL has changed my impulsive attitude.
    Words can hurt in any form, but once out of our mouth they are on their targeted trajectory, text speech gives one the chance to read through, adjust ….and maybe decide to Delete – or be a little more forgiving.
    I try to opt for the latter these days :)

    In my case your words perfectly hit their spot.
