You’ll be the first to know when a new poem is posted

I hope you feel at home amongst my words, and I hope you enjoy the important spaces in between them just as much…

Welcome to my thinking out loud…



Posted on 24 February 2021 by Iain under Thinking Out Loud
A picture of a virus in the body


Exponential touch through shared space
Unequivocal in focus and goals
An audit trail of diminished hosts

I am like the wind…

You can only see my impact, but never me

Immunity an unknown factor
Community my ideal hunting ground
Unity in distancing my nemesis
Opportunity is all I need

I am the separator of herds

I am the perpetual slayer of giants

I have been here before and worked the streets
Albeit dressed in different clothes
You were hypnotised by my power
You were levelled by my will

Name me whatever you will

I am no pathogen of peace

                     I am microbial malice

                               Our battle has begun again,
                               and I do not sleep…

Thank you for being my travel companion
