Mourning…

Mourning…

written by: David R Mellor

 

I wake up to coffee
My failing eye sight
Classical music gently calming down
The beats of the coming day

My cat encircles me
Wanting food
And then with trepidation
I turn on the news

They are waking up to
An underground shelter
Darkness all around them

Hearing in the distance
The slow thunder of tanks

And the loss of their lives

David R Mellor

Born 1964, (Liverpool, England) to a difficult birth, David didn't find his voice until his youth. Years of thinking he was nobody and treated as such. Including a period of homelessness in the desperate Thatcher Years. However, he hit the paper papering over the scars. Found understanding and belief through words. He has been published and performed widely from the BBC, The Tate, galleries and pubs and everything in between. His poems and stories are autobiographical, others topical and several his take on life.
