The Beat Goes On


The drum beat,
Crashes through her body,
As she weaves through the crowd.
Lips slightly parted,
Eyes focused.
She knows,
What she wants.
The music heightens the mood.
Did you ever stand a chance?

Inspired by the song Towers – Young Guns

When Somebody Loves You

You crept under my skin,
Tattooed your name on my heart,
And I fell.
I’m still falling.
You’re not just somebody,
Your name is on my every breath.
I will be there to catch the stars,
Just to glimpse your smile.
Stay awake all night,
To guard the demons from your door.
Let you go,
Because I can’t make you happy.
You will break my heart,
But I can’t change,
My love for you.
This week Carry On Tuesday’s prompt was the lyric “When Somebody Loves You.”

There Is A Box


There is a box,

Our favourite things,

Not wanted any more.

Too painful in this light.

Generic teddy;


Twee card filled with empty words.

Your tokens to me.

It’s a fine line,

But without the dust of love,

They’ve lost their magic,

Their glow.

And so have I.



This week Carry On Tuesday’s lyric prompt was “A few of my favourite things”. Still not sure how I managed to take a happy upbeat song about fluffy kittens and come out with this…
