A mixture of thoughts and feelings, inspired by favourite words and real life experiences in the heart of North Westmeath.

Long although remote,
Torn within seconds.
Hurt from a casual comment.
For innocent parties,
Not for me

A line crossed.
No return.
Your message disgusts
Then life moves on.
For you,
Not for me

Sickness remains,
Photographs trashed,
Gifts discarded.
Your wife’s pride obvious
Through posts and pictures,
I can’t comment.
Friendship destroyed.
This is over now,
For me.
