Tiredness Leaves Me Wordless


I’m wordless at the moment

My thoughts are in postponement

I hear Leonard’s songs

All night long

Lyrics full of love

White lilies and doves

I hold your pale glove

My one truelove

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  2. Remember that song Ivor, “You say it best when you say nothing at all” Of course this is not a reference to every other poem you write, in case you thought different in reading. It just seemed to fit this poem. Better stop digging before the hole gets too deep…

      1. And last nights poem that I finished this morning, I wrote during the night when I was half awake a few time during the night, but the words were in my head, so I had to write them down then and there in my bed, otherwise the I lose them and then they’re gone into oblivion.
