Clara’s Ballad

You’ve heard the words remember me
echoes splinter through time
quiet whispers in reality
somewhere the bells have chimed.

He met her inside a Dalek
she was full of sass and style
studying every move and trick
parting ways for a while.

He found her at the Rose & Crown
serving the London streets
chasing him through the ancient town
the second time they’d meet.

And then somewhere in the future
a place you and I know
he would find her as a teacher
and travelling they would go.

She went spinning with him in space
a button nose of curiosity
questioning every time and place
but he was the mystery.

Deciphering the enigmatic
whimsies of a mad man
she saw how his life was tragic
but danger had a plan.

They fought the Great Intelligence
and ran from time zombies
he brought her aboard with pretence
keen to know her story.

Leaping into the gold vortex
she saved him from himself
shattering across his cortex
echoing through his self.

She was the voice inside his head
that pulled him from the dark
a shining light in times of dread
a tiny little spark.

Remember me you clever boy
Remember me in dreams
Remember me you clever boy
Nothing is as it seems.

I like to think I'm a story teller. I love stories. I believe the world is filled with stories just waiting to be told and learned. I enjoy travelling down the road less travelled, with my iPhone and journal in each hand. Here you'll find all my poetic musings... Enjoy!
