Terry Hall

Terry Hall

written by: David R Mellor

 

I heard the news
At 4.30 a.m. exactly
I knew it would hurt
And it did so badly

A voice that blew away the fluff of the 80’s
A sincere stare
And words that were rich and plenty

I heard the news
At 4.30 a.m. exactly
I knew it would hurt
And it did so badly

An honesty that left you feeling less alone
A life of pain
etched in words that could have been my own

I heard the news
At 4.30 a.m. exactly
I knew it would hurt
And it did so badly

I heard your voice
And it rings in my head so beautifully
I know it will stay, in the echo chamber
Of my memory

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.
