Two Poems - Jamie Gartley

Jamie Gartley | 17 July 2018

 

 

Aura

 

There is a cruel underpinning to lust in the moonlight.
 

A curious and firm feeling that blobs its way into your consciousness.
 

It stirs and waits until the early morning light beams its aura,
 

and you feel the gnash of a vicious bite.
 

‘I am not here, I am not yours’,
 

said with a sort of pubescent disaffection.
 

It laughs, and I sleep.

 

 

 

Side One, Track One

 

Five years flash by in an instant.
 

There is more to be forgotten than remembered.
 

Though it seems forgotten far too quickly.
 

A familiarity in warmth is to be desired;
 

no matter how often, no matter how long.
 

I want you, you want someone else.
 

There’s the difference.
 

When love’s flame flickered, and we began to falter,
 

you put out the light. Now I put out the light.
