the Comfort Zone

It’s cold outside the comfort zone.

I need to stay in my niche where it

is safe and warm.

A sheltered haven of downy feathers

still sweet with your imprint.

On dreary nights when the rain

pours endlessly down my bay window

I disappear into  street life,

shivering beneath the grayish moon

with nothing but cheap wine to warm us.

Tonight I am engrossed in urgent lovers,

immersed in their own  heat they are oblivious.

Their shadows  sway to the insistent hum of life.

Because I am afraid  I pull the shades,

sink back into exile.

  1. Great written words by you as always. Touching and endearing and the video… David Gilmour, one of the main reasons why I picked up a guitar in the first place and my all time favourite guitarist of all time.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this clip to enhance your piece. To hear artists make their instruments talk is extremely rare these days, and these guys still ‘have it’. One of my favourite tracks of all time, I could listen to it for hours.


  3. you know ! your posts are great they are a reflection of your soul, and the integrity of your heart, I regularly follow all of your posts, and know even though I do not have time you are a person who has a heart and soul worthy of respect. I can not and you do not tell your posts are a reflection of the beauty of your soul ! sorry to bother you but this is my opinion, I certainly want to know my opinion
