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I have decided to select a small selection of unpublished poems to present on here.Many magazines will only accept poems that are new and unpublished, so it is always a difficult process of evaluation, deciding which poems to protect in order to preserve their literary viginity.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

 

falling

 

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.
