the sound of colour

i hear in colour
rainbows of sounds
voices are blue
the wind is red
birds are green
my mind is filled
with colours merging and
coming together in a
multicoloured blend of noise
then they rupture, divide,
disperse back to where
they came from and i am
left with the white
noise of life


I’m been experiencing headaches nearly every day since July. This and the subsequent poems over the next few days are centred around my experience of living with these headaches.

is this headache real
or am i imagining it
i’ve become so used to them
that it’s difficult
for me to remember
what it’s like to live
without a headache
or do i experience
life without a headache
but i don’t realise it
there’s the pain, the
sharp pain that shoots from
the centre of my brain
exploding through my skull
down my scalp and off my chin
confirming the headaches
are still there
a sharp reminder that
life at the moment
is far from normal

sugar coated soot
dropping on him
from the chimney
he imagined it
was black pearls
falling from space
a message from
far away that
he was on
the right path
in his life
