Dangerous to know

I am nearly 72. It is the first poem I have ever written and came almost effortlessly on the back of a Memoir (1945 – 2016) I felt compelled to write.

DANGEROUS TO KNOW


 


Asleep not asleep


thinking of you.


A gale outside,


bullying the air,


releasing a prayer.


Asleep not asleep


thinking of you.


 


Asleep not asleep


naively with you.


Bodies closely entwined,


loving and laughter,


happily ever after.


Asleep not asleep


naively with you.


 


Asleep not asleep


clinging to you.


Knowing not knowing,


coming and going,


young love overthrowing.


Asleep not asleep


clinging to you.


 


Asleep not asleep


alone without you.


A wispered aside,


a green-ache inside,


nowhere to hide.


Asleep not asleep


alone without you.


 


Asleep yes asleep!


Many years after.


Aware and alive.


Careful : not blind.


Magnetic and kind.


Asleep yes asleep,


and… dangerous to know.
