A passage about abuse and Inner pain by an extraordinary young woman who has experienced too much. Here are two very recently conceived offered forth by her editor and champion.

New poetry by a very new comer.

I found you swinging out in the dark
Like when we used to, summers in the park
You were grey and I was tied
And you thought it was your time to fly
You thought the screams were wishing you dead
I wanted to shake you, it's all in your head
But the laces were tied and you disappeared
And the screams are ones that I now hear.

I saw the fame ricochet your mind
Twenty seven years, time to shine
Gone with a shot, you were my own star
But live as you're not, the fame was too far
You were untouchable, cameras and lights
But there were secrets, drugs and fights
You were tired and the lights were blinding
There were secrets we were finding
So the bullet went in, and out went the lights
Twenty seven is the most famous fight.


Hidden Desire, Hidden Truth

I live in a remote place off the coast of the United Kingdom. I must gain some of my inspiration from the physical and social isolation. Poetry allows me to 'travel'!
