31 poems

Double scoop ice cream, a sweet birthday treat
banana and toffee, too much too eat

After the ice cream I sit in the park
as young couples stroll, until it gets dark

Two dogs run in tandem, owner walking
on mobile phone, she is laughing, talking

all those around me, making connexions
while here I sit with just my  reflections

enjoying the freedom to do as I please
to sit in the sunshine, feeling this breeze

when I go home I must watch what I say
harsh words or new bruises may mar this day

I wish I was brave, to be on my own
together with you, I feel so alone
