I put my age on here 4 years ago. Instead of updating it every year, I shall just say that I was born in 1980 and you can work out how old I am. :) I am Mum to 2 children(both boys)who have been inspiration for much of my poetry. I have had several poems published in different books but I thought it would be nice to keep it all in one place. Unfortunately I don't have all of my older poetry so this will be mostly recent.

Red

'Red' by Rhys Tamborski (my son aged 14)
Red, red is all we see
The colour of blood all around me,
With each and every breath,
We know, we're getting closer to death.
Back in the trenches we have walls of mud,
Rats and lice share these ditches with us,
Every man: over the top will add to the blood,
The blood that stains our trenches and clothes.
Out in No Man's Land; the field of death,
We will draw our final breath,
We will go over the top again,
Only to be killed by German men.
Red: the colour of blood.
Red is all we see,
The colour of blood all around me,
With each and every breath,
We know we're getting closer to death
We are Murderers now,
No longer human,
We've killed so many innocent men,
But why? Because they signed up, just like us,
Thinking it would be brilliant, thinking it would be fun.
But no, it's NOT! Whenever we see the sun
We know we're going over again,
Just to kill more men.
Red, red is all we see,
Their blood surrounds me,
The blood of men; enemies, allies, friends,
We know that all lives have ends.
Red, red is all we see,
The colour of blood all around me,
With each and every breath,
We know we're getting closer to death.
Red of blood,
Mixed with brown of mud,
I draw my final breath,
And taste the bitter scent of death

My Love

Forever isn't long enough
To hold you in my arms
Though it only took a minute
For me to fall for your charms.

You tell me what you think of me
Each and every day
I really hope you know, my love
That I feel the same way.

I have fallen for you
In a way I thought I never could
And I know you love me
Like I thought no other would.

I didn't think it possible
To love me like you do
You don't have to say it
Just know I love you too.
