Friends

On seeing in my mind’s eye your long hair encasing a face
Worn by wisdom that only life brings for we are friends you and I.
As I pass each corner alone your voice echoes across the empty streets
Dawn sets I await your tread fall
I teeter between grief and happiness to have known you
For we shared a dream
But we stand as one as I remember you
With all my heart I recall funny moments
Embrace my loss
The wind blows away my tears
The sun warms my face
We stand at peace as I wish you could be with me.

Gabby Tyrrell

Shadow

I tread the pavement carefully
something is after me
The hair on the back of my neck rises.
My eyes dart around
I hear a footfall -a shout.
A fall
I run.
It runs after me
Dark arms embrace me and hold me close.
My shadow was only trying
to keep up with me.

Gabby Tyrrell
