So I’ve mentioned in my first post that I am an amateur poet. Amateur being the key word here.
I wrote a series of poems from about the age of 23 through to 29. I haven’t written any since but I looked over this series the other day.
The first thing I noticed is that they aren’t quite as good as I once thought they were. But hey, this is Memoirs of the Mind – and that is where these poems came from. So I present them to you.
I formed the poem’s into a book called Beauty and Disruption.
This series follows a journey. The journey from the beginnings of a young, happy and naive youth, through the downfall of a stage lost in grief and self pity, and eventually out the other side.
Here is the sixth of the series.
It was at a time where I was thinking about life a little more completely following Adam’s passing. I realised how much more everyone meant to me. Especially my girlfriend and future wife Amanda. I wrote this for her.
AN EMPTY HEAVEN (Rory Mouttet)
I don’t care what Heaven’s like,
or how much the angels sing at night,
If I go there without you girl,
then it would not be such a beautiful world.
If I reached that heavenly place,
but I could not see your heavenly face,
or have your gentle arms to comfort and hold me,
I know my heart would still forever be lonely
Lord forgive me for saying this,
but I don’t care how good the feeling is.
Deep in my heart I know it would not be true,
Because my heaven girl is here with you.
