Beautiful Delusion

I have decided to select a small selection of unpublished poems to present on here.Many magazines will only accept poems that are new and unpublished, so it is always a difficult process of evaluation, deciding which poems to protect in order to preserve their literary viginity. As a result I have a virtual cupboard of poems that languish unread.


Beautiful Delusion


You look like someone


waking slowly from a dream


feeling your way


back to consciousness




I suppose


out of love.



I could have told you that


sorrow is twinned with bliss


but you were too bewitched


by pheromones, a strangers lips


the intimacy of the tentative kiss


the smouldering beauty of his eyes


the complex nuances of chemistry-


to unpick, the  tangled web of lies.
