On the receiving end

Do not be with someone who only wants you when you are happy.

Letters on the shelf

I see my book on your shelf
And yours on mine,

I would take our afterthoughts
And turn them into rhyme.

Every romance starts with
A blank page.
Take note,

People still write letters
Left for others to quote.

Each day with you
Leaves a poet at a loss for words.

I love you, Darragh.

A time for us,

Our love story —
A living bookcase
Sealed with kisses.



Use disappointment as fuel for success.

If you do not have anything nice to say, 
Say it nicely.

(Don't) go breaking my heart


Love should not break your heart, but it should have the power to.

Fold the towel

Wrapped in love
Changes one.

Whether it is for the better,
I know not. 

Hard to believe
In easy love

When emotional scars
Still cloud the mind. 

Wrapped in your arms
Feedback that binds.

Easy to believe 
In compromise.

I am changing,
I know that now.

Do not throw in the towel,
I will gladly fold mine.

Water under the bridge is forgetting,

Forgiveness is crossing it.

Storms to look out for

The world put to a halt,
In lockdown
Creating this cocoon of ours.

Morning kisses
Conversations on toast
Another coffee for this sleepyhead,

It is in those seconds you do not notice
That it hits me the most. 

Who will we be
When this page goes down in history?

Dressing sharp for a burger 
Dancing to silence,
I will remember

Feelings on the tip of my tongue 
Slowly unlocking  -

Truth lights up the dark

I fell in love
During lockdown.

There are places where you leave your prints... and others that you carry in your heart for all eternity.
