Punch Start

written by: SMiles



Punched as a sucker
might expect to receive
a knee bend failing the quest
in an endeavour to please
tripping the fandango
in lights of the moon's silvery sheen
losing heart tethers to the tumble
of bambies glistening mean
a naked self wandering exposed
to vultures attack
only left holding a loving forlorn
by the following pack
bruised to batterings
of such a longing heart
i ache you long time my dear
until accepting your depart
such feelings of depth
sending quivered of despair
lost to a world
only you can repair
such hardy foolings
as a Tom on my part
bare laying fragility
from the end to the start.



My name Is Stephen John Miles (SMiles) live in Barrow in Furness Cumbria England, I'm 53 diagnosed dyslexic at 47. Found my written voice once diagnosed and have been shouting ever since. I've a self published children's book Zac's leather elephant and a published children's book The fox the owl and the big green towel, I have a new children's book coming out later this year called Book of Zac. The books are published by Austin Macaulay. I made stories up to entertain my children all rhyming this led to the books. My break in poetry came after a friend of mine died and I wrote a poem for his funeral. Two years ago I appeared at the Bloomsbury festival in London. I write beat poems as it works well with my dyslexia. Something I feel strongly about is self expression after feeling excluded for so long. I'm not for everyone but then not everyone's for me so that makes us even.
