Reminder of Life – Liam Caldwell

When clouds pour forth our empty pearls of fears,
Don’t let your tender tears be washed away:
All love ends like this anyway
After, or during, the artifice of years.
Don’t bear remembrance like shrapnel, I beg you,
Nor let it tarnish, like buckles on your shoes.

Look above the rooftops and the streetlights
And watch converging sunsets, light from light;
Infer those songbirds in their v-shaped flights,
Dwindling or enlarging to our lone sights.

About aloudqmu

Aloud is a monthly poetry and spoken word open mic night, and literary magazine. We are based in Glasgow University's Queen Margaret Union, Glasgow, Scotland, UK. Here we wish to publish performance videos from our open mic nights, event updates, and the writing featured in our monthly Aloud Magazine, and some of the writing that didn't quite make the final cut.
