Richard Pierce – author, poet, painter

Life, Poetry, Writing


These days, it ebbs
And flows,
My magenta mood,
The colour of melancholy,
Fear, lack of belief,
A sense
Of senselessness.

Today is a day when
The mood is a tidal wave,
When I want to press
On all the words
I’ve tumbled onto screen
And paper and thought
They were good enough.
None of them ever were.

The whole world is wrapped
In a magenta cloak today,
And it’s endless and too heavy.
