“One Last Affair” published on Spillwords Press

I was very lucky to have my recent poem One Last Affair published on Spillwords Press in their ‘featured posts’ section.

If you’d like to go there and give it a read, please do πŸ™‚ There is even a tiny little ‘heart’ button you can tickle to let Spillwords Press know how much you’ve enjoyed reading it…

Thanks to the team at Spillwords Press and to you for reading. I hope to post some new poems soon.


P.S. I’m currently taking a break from Instagram and Twitter but can still be reached by email.

P.P.S. Here is me reading the lyrics to Paper Thin Hotel by Leonard Cohen…

  1. They were smart to pick up that poem, it’s wonderfully breathtaking and others will agree. Go forth and make others fall at your feet in sweet adoration. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š And after all, it’s good to wipe out social media while tending to new poems; better to focus. Can’t wait to see what’s in store. xx

    1. Thanks Kim, that’s very kind of you. As for social media, life feels a lot better without it so I may not return. I do miss some of the unexpected conversations but it’s so much easier to focus on the important things without the doom-scrolling distraction. πŸ™‚

  2. Congratulations Tom!!! Wow! I so loved “One Last Affair”!! Magnificent word play and usage! Especially loved your words leading to different thoughts and meanings! They say, an unblinking gaze between two people ends up in a Yes! Brilliantly penned!!! πŸ˜βœ¨βœ¨πŸ‘

    1. Thank you my friend. It was perhaps not the most accessible piece of writing to share on Spillwords (there’s a lot going on in this one) but I’m glad it seems to have gone down well. Thanks for reading, supporting and sticking by my blog. It’s appreciated! T

      1. Yes, it is also my dream to see my work somewhere proper! 🀍 I’m not yet done reading your poems thoroughly though, and one of it I take to ponder. Also, if my memories are right, I think I missed you on Instagram already. Have a great day! The pleasure is mine too ✨
