There are words Written Sent Opened Read These are words Messages Shared Between us And sometimes others But yours The ones you send to me Are the ones I want to read the most. © Kris Blackburn 10/10/2017


I want to offer you the world and beyond. Everything within the reach of human endeavour I would give to you gladly. Instead, I stumble and fall. Break when I should be strong. And all I have left is dust. © Kris Blackburn 30/07/2017

Before the Rain Came

Before the rain came It was dark and dull Silent and still Lonely and close Curves of colour Racing and streaming Streaking bold and true Intersecting The darkness parting Until the rain came. © Kris Blackburn 22/07/2017
