Sarcastic Kiss

Let me take up paper and write of forests

Leafy memories of varied significance

The purged sanctuaries and sacred hollows

Naked and exposed,

Let me close my eyes to see it fully

Lips pursed in a sarcastic kiss

Instantly thoughts jostle for position

Drowning out the icy wind,

Let me make an error to fix a mistake

Regretting regrets is my new favourite passtime

For all the forward thinking I can muster

The backward pull is always stronger

    Anna…this. This poem is complex and beautiful. Although I love the witty charm of your usual pieces, this one catches in the throat. Fantastically dark and intriguing.

      Thank you! This is probably an area I feel more comfortable in if that makes sense. Most of my recent poems are like this but sadly they’ll not probably be read out at gigs incase I depress anyone 😄. Actually I read this one on Friday and it was one of the better received ones xxx
