The Place


I dont want to be here, I want to be there,
why can’t I be there all the time?

It’s the absence that grows the heart,
the contrast is necessary to visualise the beauty,

Moss covered rocks, bubbling water, ferns on branches,
The smell fills the air, the smell of life itself,

Strengthening me internally, spiritually
Giving me an internal understanding , a sense of belonging without people.

Wheres your place of specialness?
It’s out there somewhere , we all have one.

Go and find yours, remember it and tell your children,
and PROTECT it at all cost.

Before it gets lost.

I grew up on a council estate bordering the green fields of kent , so it was fishing in streams and glue sniffing skinheads, what a contrast. I,ve taken drugs and had mixed times both very bad and good and have done a huge variety of different jobs which all in all I think make my work interesting. I dont drink or take drugs anymore. Havent for 8 years. Its better but I regret nothing, it all adds to you person.Thanks for reading my work. Its very enjoyable to do and a bit secret !

The Place

The Place short poem

Square box hidden in plain sight, square with the head positioned just right; the place of silence. Lying flat, no movement, with a stiffness of sort, a rectangular figure, colorful, long and sturdy. Propped up with a stillness, an energy

The Hiding Place

The Hiding Place short poem

Deep into the night, I can hear the hiding place calling. Its canopy soaring high into the clouds, And its green carpet spreads from horizon to horizon. It is where many mysteries hide. It allows a child’s imagination to create
