I guess you saw it coming
I guess you’d marked the edge well
as we walked the path

failure is its own reward

I guess you’d call me hopeless
I guess you’d call this love song

no need to be pedantic
about who loves who
or why

I’m retired IT manager from Manchester England, and I’ve been writing poetry (formally) about 10 years, but I’ve been obsessed by playing with language since I first understood it.


My other artistic interests include sculpture, painting, and making music and jewellery.
