Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus short poem

Photo by photophilde

Hints and hokum,
Take me to the locum.
See if she can make me right.
Rub a bit of cream in,
Pills to stop me dreaming,
Visions well beyond my sight.

A pill for all ills,
Yet I’m sick to the gills.
A steaming hot toddy and bed
I’m sure that’s the way
Think I’ll go there today,
And see what the drear doctors said

A life without being able to enjoy music and express in words would be, for me, empty and cold.I have been writing since age 16, some 30+ years now but have only recently started publishing my works. Since doing so in Dec 2013, I have published 4 novels and 5 volumes of poetry, (available on Amazon.co.uk).My words are my life. If they touch you in any way, if you are able to take something from them, then my work has achieved its goal and I am a happy man.Welcome to my world. Darren.
