Seeing Stars

Seeing Stars long poem

Thought I’d call you for a chat mum
‘Cos it was your birthday today
Knew you’d been at it ‘cos…
‘Cos you weren’t sounding glum

In fact you talked for an age
Rambling on nonsensically
And no, we weren’t on the same page

For ten minutes we had a one way chat
You slurred on and on
I twiddled my thumbs, just sat…
Sat listening till you realised it was me
Not my sister who you were talking at

I asked you if you got my gift
I spent hard cash this year, no thrift
Pondered carefully on what you liked
Forgetting that it’s a drink fully spiked

I bought you a named star
Pity really – you’d no idea
Too long spent at your personal bar

Though a wish might do you good
Something shiny to look up to
When in your dark wood

We don’t talk often, see each other less
You wonder why mum?
When you’re always such a mess?

I know what your poison is
Booze makes you happy
Then makes you hiss

A real conversation is what I miss
I just wish one day we could really chat
Maybe for that you’d give up the piss

We could talk mum and daughter stuff
Not sure what that is actually
Boys and household tips, that kind of fluff

Maybe I’d share my new India life
The wonderful days, the moments of strife

I’m a dreamer, I totally get it, I do
My childhood wish upon a star
Won’t ever come true

Hearts Are Stars

Hearts are stars lost in a tango- between the moon and the sun. Stuck between parallel worlds- they only shine to a smiling moon only to die for a burning sun. Love is an eclipse of a sparkling moon standing
