Guy Farmer


"Short-Sightedness" by Guy Farmer

A summer morning,
Standing on a
Balcony inhaling
Quiet air.
Headphones on,
Listening to the
Song that makes
Him yearn.
A string of days
Blur into each other,
Slumped on a couch
Without a hope.

"Unattended" by Guy Farmer

She cries at the
Most trivial moments –
Everyone around her
Notices that it
Doesn’t quite fit
With what’s really
Going on at the time –
Memories of the
Anguish she felt as
A child bubble up
Relentlessly,
Unacknowledged,
Unattended.
She lives this way
Her entire life,
It colors her
Worldview deeply.
