Alex’s Poem

In “Shot In The Dark”, Ken had been rushed to hospital after being shot while protecting one of his clients. Having described herself as Ken’s girlfriend to satisfy the nurse, Alex sat all night with him in hospital, tenderly reading him romantic poetry such as the following verses:

If pain and hurt and ache I crave
Or a fire to burn my soul
If tears I choose to cleanse mine eyes
Then to you would I give my all.

If lips must be bitten but never kissed
And ne’er to mention your name
Then nought is left except to die
As a moth unto the flame.

The poem was probably specially written by Tony Jordan, writer of this episode, rather than being a quotation from a published poem.
