Poem: The Jealousy of Distance


I wonder if you’ve said

‘I love you’

To anyone else yet?

Such stupid questions

A jealous mind engenders

When love should just be

Thrown about

Like snooker balls

Scattered over a table

Of greenish furze

In the Liverpudlian art gallery

All the paintings came to life

And stole me away

I got trapped inside

A different reality

But no matter how hard I tried

To scream through the different dimensions

The elevator had stalled

And the glass walls

That separated us

Were too opaque

To see through

A lonely heart’s meanderings

On a blazing summer’s day

A smile ever-ripening

As it fondly regards decay
