Joe Dawson

In a world of my own

In a world of my own where words

Multiply, where sometimes they wonder,

And sometimes they rhyme. Where

Sometimes deep feelings parade

On a page of illusion, confusion,

Conpassion, and rage.


In a world where a story is told in a

Rhyme, where teardrops and laughter

Draw breath from a lie. Where dry

Lips glow moist in a passionate fling,

Or where hearts that were lost, find

Each other again.


In a world where the stage and the

Props are all mine, where feelings

Run high in the arms of a sigh. Where

Honesty, heartache, lies and the truth,

May be found altogether here under

One roof.

          Hi Bill, Thank you for reading, I hope that cuppa went down well, PG, Typhoo, or was it Gold from Aldi? Joe

          • The Uneducated O.A.P

            Nearly got to the stage of hanging up the used teabags to dry, surprising how many cuppas you can get out of one bag! Bill

                I think all of us touched by the need to write poetry are in a similar place to yours.
                For me you hit the nail on the head, i am all of those things u describe.
