We Are Borrowed

Death usually brings her own rewards.
More hugging and clutching, 
More appreciation,
More reverence,
More laughter.
More respect.
In some ways,
It is the best
Time to love,
A reminder
That we
Are all
Borrowed,
But we
Have to
Be returned.

Last Flight

Squadron leader to his Sergeant.

Another fatality Felicity,
another regimental letter of commiseration,
another space to type in with a name a rank
another space to enter our lives,
on this the darkest of days.
He was my friend Felicity,
an old school chum; we joined up together
for the cause; for dear old Blighty
naively for the thrill.
Here, the earring he wore around his neck
soon to be reunited with the one
his sweetheart holds most dear,
her tatty old airline ticket, also soon to be reunited
with his the one she holds, a memento
of their first meeting on a flight to Paris ‘38’.
Sergeant! Empty your ashtray it’s disgusting.

I Cannot Look

I cannot look I will not look 
That’s not you inside

Jaws of life are roaring
Trying to cut you free
Crimson are the car seats
Tears are all I see 

I cannot look I will not look 
That’s not you inside

That body in the white bed
With tubes all hanging out
We all just stand in horror
While doctors run about

I cannot look, I will not look
That’s not you inside

I’ve already seen the bandage 
Wrapped around your head
I will not look inside the box
Now your eternal bed

I can’t look I will not look 
That’s not you inside

WE ALL DIE

My piety,my poetry ,my love
All are in vain
my music, my love ,my mind
All are running insane

My rhymes are all crooked
I can't write a perfect song
Looks like my life is worthless
my music, my poetry its all gone

Behold the paradox,
In these old rhymes 
living in a worthless life 
All these times 

The music's almost over
just need to turn out the light
I need just one leap
Need to show on last fight

I need to create something
something that makes you feel
the goal isn't to live forever
Its to create something that will

Death of a Friend

There were no tears of sorrow when she passed
No suffering or pain, a quiet death
Though many questioned just how long she'd last
Few noticed when she took her final breath

So many photographs and memories
With family and friends while she was here
She shared her time and warmth so willingly
Forever will we hold her days so dear

Though she has passed we will continue on
There will be many gloomy days ahead
Some days her memory will flash at dawn
And some nights when we crawl into our bed

For now let's raise our glass at summer's wake
Cause soon it will be autumn's leaves we'll rake

Letting Callie Go

A full year it grew as dear Callie cat endured that stinking cancer. Night screams came, which pierced my heart. Only then could I let go. . .

Lament for the Dead

Lament for the Dead
buried deep beneath Twin Towers’ bloodstained rubbles my murdered loved one
a heartbroken heaven wept trapping joy in a time warp…

Moving On

I'm not sure if I should be angry
But I think I'm supposed to act sad 
On the day, I heard of your passing
All I know, is for ME, it was bad
Your family can't stop their weeping
Your friends were all glad, it's not them
And shortly we'll all get together
To sing you an old, but short hymn
Soon they will bury your body
But I will not visit your grave
'Cause I know, you are still in existence   
And no longer one of us slaves 
But the reason I think I am angry
Is not that you left me just bones
Is that you went to the next life without me
Leaving me stuck here alone

Sense of Touch

That Bench He goes there every day; to that bench in the shade; Where his shoes have formed small clearings in the gravel; where his wool sport coat has rubbed smooth the paint. He goes there every day, to that bench in the shade where the squirrels eat straight from his hand as little birds frantically snatch up seeds he's sprinkled about. He goes there every day, to that bench in the shade but not today…and not again.

When I Die 2

Look at I,I Richard Palmer seriously didn't cry,,,
When the ALMIGHTY called,'Poetic Palmer,Poetic Palmer,tell
this physical world bye bye,,,
Don't worry guys,wipe those tears from your eyes,,,
Feel,feel my presence,my spirit didn't blow away like a cloud
in the sky,,,
I am holding the ALMIGHTY hands,
I have become, a part of HIS plan,,,
Watching over and protecting my love ones,,,
An ANGEL,was always my after life intention,,,

Angel of Death

Angel of Death,
Cloaked in black.
With black scaled wings,
Upon her back.
Angel of Death,
Coming for me.
As soon as I sleep
Then dead I will be.
Taken by the night
It swallows and consumes me.
Now I am the angel
And death becomes me.

Farewell My Friend



In graveyard dreams
tombstones are etched 
with fading memories

Only plastic flowers
are forever—apart from
my undying love…

Farewell, mon amie...

Petrichor Petals

Petrichor petals 
float with departing zephyrs,
misplacing misunderstood messages,
whose true meanings are misinterpreted. 

Mislaid memories 
reflect on picture perfect puddles,
mentally memorising mistakes,
leaving behind a legacy of regret.

Painful passages
monopolise melancholic mind, 
bittersweet swansong symphonies,
seduce soulful spirit into a sabbatical.

Pessimistic penitence
engraves on blank expression,
depicting disease, drifting to death,
nauseating numbness perpetually laments.

Remnants of Roxanne

Remnants of you Roxanne
Drape over my memory like a warm blanket

I can still see you there just over my shoulder
Your smiling eyes and toothy grin beaming up at me

I still feel your warmth in the rays of the sun
And I still hear your voice in the winds that blow across this land
This land... your home
Will forever feel the presence of your shadow watching over...
Watching over us all

And though I am sad to be parted from you my friend
I am reassured to know...
That now there'll be someone to watch over me wherever I go

- for Roxie, my faithful wonderful friend

Glowing Cloud On Mountain Top

Glowing Cloud On Mountain Top


I met you there, so very full of grace
single rose in your shining raven hair
Radiance beaming from your sweet face
couldn't stop myself, I had to stare!

Every moment since, forever treasured
nights glowed on, your smile a star
Everything since that night measured,
love raced in deep, like a speeding car!

Now time has given me such great sorrow
Heaven welcomed your spirit on in
Misery my food, heartache my tomorrow
forever gone my lover, my great friend!

Glowing cloud on mountain top now dances
I gamble that climb and took my chances!

Autumn Leaves

Autumn leaves are falling,
there is sadness in my heart.
Red passions, golden memories
have gathered to depart.

The chilling winds of winter
blow across a barren field,
stripped of all its splendor,
of the beauty once revealed.

Flowers painted yellow,
blossoms pink and white,
just dust between the furrows
in the slowly dimming light.

Free to sail the heavens
no longer bound with slings.
Black bird into emptiness 
I soar on broken wings.

The Road it Forks

In the breaking light of dawn,
in a photograph - we kiss.
It's to your inner light I'm drawn,
while cursing fate, and chances missed...
Wrapped in thought, and solitude, 
sweet lies trumped by bitter truth.
The road it forks,and one way taken,
now questions over dreams foresaken...
A puzzling gauntlet of how, when and why?
You were my favorite hello,
and my hardest goodbye...

Eulogy

Eulogy

Good to the core,
regardless of things that went before.
The kind of a man
who'd lend you a helping hand.
When he smiled he let the sunshine in
and you knew he was a friend.
He had his faults as we all do
but his were far between and few.
Staying positive was his motto,
believing in God his faith,
and he was loved by all who knew him.
May he now always rest in peace.

The Jaws of Life Could Take Me Home Tonight

Wrestling the wreckage, I'm fading into darkness unknown.
My head is going straight to voicemail, missing calls from home.
These veins are erratically static, strung out on a backseat,
but the memory of music shall comfort me.
I am so scared, but trapped in such melody.
A bitter-sweet, temporary goodbye;
there isn't a stranger in sight to notice that I'm not alright.
In this night, take me back to simpler times,
when these wheels never spun out on the ice.
Pain has made me so slippery,
giving in to triggering trickery.
Please pray for me.
I am in need of jaws,
to bite off these flaws!
I am almost gone beyond repair.
God, I am so scared!

Linda-Marie

She was my friend - and friend to all;
she had a heart of gold. 
I miss the chats we used to have
and stories that she told,
her way with words, her witty tongue
and sassy sense of fun.
Her kindness made the Soup a home:
her words inspired each one.
Although our Sweetheart passed away,
her memory will always stay.

Dictator

To those who forgive me
I loathe you
for you are weak
No
your voices are not worthy
you spineless living
dead things
worthless as dumb dogs

If not incarcerated
I would do it again
would squeeze everything
out of you

land

pride

dignity

your life

No do not say you forgive me
you are not gods
You have no power to forgive
you are impotent

After I vanish
I will haunt you to your deaths
and there
I will be waiting
to squeeze the light from your soul
until nothing but darkness

THE GRAVE SAYS NOTHING

I can't forget my beloved one
Whose fate now lies in a grave,
I remember him at every moment
Of his company I crave;
But the grave says nothing.

Day after day I stare -
At the grave with wistful eyes,
Hoping that Lord would answer my pleas
And my beloved would rise;
But the grave says nothing.

Many tears I shed
That fall on my feet,
Each day I come to my beloved
To plead;
But the grave says nothing.

I wish from my heart
That he would rise,
And I fix on the grave
My patient, eager eyes;
But the grave says nothing.

Finally, I forget him
I go on my way -
But, ever silent, my beloved
And the grave lay;
The grave ... says nothing.

Amidst ruined scatter, I demise

In ruined scatter witnessing the greys into black Why has it come to this as us humans finally lack Through my eyes bloodied looking down on such Crossed I've become in frenzied scarred mode As to I I'm in awe as to the I that fuses Centurions from Legions brave, showing confuse To my left to my right seeing said damnest like I In wondering their theirs as to their paraded Mirrored like I that they require I be masqueraded The tolling bell has spoken as I enter my demise As I hang above paradise seeing cawing crows fly Images of my existence, forever, eternally why

Heaven Now Has the Rest

HEAVEN NOW HAS THE REST

It’s been so long 
Since my eyes have seen your face
There’s still days I wish you were here so I could tell you
Everything going right or wrong.

Your smile was the moon in my sky at night
And your laughter was my stars;
You are still in my heart
You will always be its light.

Even after all these years
I wonder how you would be
If you were here,
Some days there are still tears.

Heaven has the best
For now you have wings;
We lived a few years here in this life,
Heaven now has the rest.

Sonnet for Bill

SONNET FOR BILL

He told me of a driving force within
That urged in every game where he took part
An undiminished thrust to always win
Impelled him then to play with all his heart

Thus images of my own recollection
School player and athlete of high prowess
Yet he recalled one minor sport connection
When I, a duffer shared with him success

Though decades would diverge the lives we’d known
Later meetings were with friendliness and grace
Now in this life’s game a final whistle’s blown
It’s time for him to plan next match or race

In a new great game he enters as beginner
Will he yet take part in full, and be a winner
