On the Glade

The light was flickering Out went the embers Out went the fire The insides so dark The rain went drip-drip Shivers ran down my spine The cold gripped my very being Because we had to meet On the glade once again My feet grips the soil My hand on the sword Here I come to… Continue reading On the Glade



Five Our front teeth missing We built sandcastles Watched in delight as the waves Smashed it in pieces. Ten We were conscious of our bodies No longer would we bath outside. We would cry if one called us his wife. We began to hear of rape and violence We wonder if it will ever get… Continue reading Timelines



She didn't mean it,It was just a fling.He slapped her,It was the devil's handiwork.She mocked her friend,It was only concern.He ignored her calls for days,Work was exhausting.It was easy to hideBehind the excuses.She knew;He knew.But it was easier to hideThan let everythingFall apart.©2020 Booky Glover Booky's Poetry

The Red Gown

The Red Gown I had a red gown That went down To my knees With heels So perfect I wanted to be Queen Bee I sang here I wrote there * With my bottled fears With my tears stained face I walked down the aisle As they spoke behind my back The whispers were intentionally… Continue reading The Red Gown


Promised to Never leave

You promised to never leave Yet there is no warmth In your dark eyes anymore You promised never to hurt me Yet you break me in me pieces With your silence day to day You promised to ever hold me Yet this grip feels cold And I wish you would let go Your heart is… Continue reading Promised to Never leave
