trailing in my wake
like unwanted creatures
searching for a home
they have sought me out
and each time
arising more darkly reincarnated
seeking to tear to pieces
all I have fought to be
the phoenix of hope within
trying so hard to rise

gains full glittering height
like clenching fists,
thumps into the first basin.
from thence on as foam,briefly lingers
before falling again,slower,more raggedly
into lower receptacles.
how alike to human thoughts,this process
they,blandly arising,seeking the bright rewards
of agreed negotiations with wit...

Slinkily invading the darkness.
she carries the theft of the moon
in her eyes.
becoming a figuration,
more black than the night she is in,who
looking up to my window,see,s me,
also thieving the moon with my eyes
albeit for the sake of my heart.

and never did fold.
she faces truth with truth.
I can easily believe
she never once let pain cross her face
despite many a battle raging inside.
always stood defending the ramparts of home was she
no doubt alone there many times.
thank heaven she and victory knew well of each other.

veils as usual.
yet its cloaking intrusion
where little clouds of neon
squat under each streetlight
like chinese lanterns.
allowing flittering insects
to enjoy their own synthetic suns
Wednesday 26th October 2011 12:24 pm
as I stand in the everywhere
of your magnificence
arms outstretched,praising heaven
the world spins around me
and lay themselves beneath my feet.
soft blown are the petals filling the air
as angels smile down from gleaming houses
guilding moreso, the sunrays with beautiful idyllic refrains,
hallowed sounds,blessed orchestrations
Tuesday 25th October 2011 9:07 pm
when I first touched upon your heart
little did I realise
I had found an oasis
a place of unconditional love,
bearing all I needed
to fill my soul with a living dream

rewind and delete
if he could,
the brawling and bawling
his history rang to.
the clatter of his stupid
staggering down one too many Loser Streets.
there is no more comfortable role
he can slip into.
no Mr.Fuckingperfect costume to wear.
no choclate box cottage of ecstatic happiness
to stand at the rose surrounded door...

from the summer sphere
spearing through tree,s
goldenly pooling the ground.
bringing more than is enough
to please grateful eyes.
to those preferring to dwell
in the darkness

they besiege him mostly
because he can,t retaliate.
but god help the gutless wonders
if he could!
the helplessness inflicted upon him
by worthier enemies
now leaves him wide open
to a daily reign of abuse
nothing like the reign
he and his eighth army comrades
battled against in North Africa.
when these present day fuckh...

close exchange of sighs,
haunted by abandonment
intoxicated with sadness.
a song of the heart broken into
innumerable irreparable pieces of lamentation
a dirge indeed to a precious conspiracy
without the hope of redemption
to the most beautiful of dust.
Thursday 20th October 2011 7:24 pm
had I been better camouflaged
and less noisier
then the Kestrel would have had no cause
to relocate his beauty
and ethereally stalk further down the valley
while in my slow stumbling pursuit to further my adorations
is he, the aerobatic artiste,the drummer of air
not actually hunting,but
taunting my clumsiness?
Tuesday 18th October 2011 6:14 pm
where white collar criminals
get white-washed is easy,
there are signs saying
'bankers and politicians are now and forever welcome here'
while debt and despair pours through the roofs of lesser mortals
the very nice man at number ten, sits at his desk
the floor is strewn with crumpled papers bearing crumpled promises.
Sunday 16th October 2011 12:54 pm
another stepping back
from self condemnation,
or so he thinks.
every time he raises the bottle to his lips
each mouthful enhances the smile
and persuades him
to travel once more
the appian way of his mind,lined
with the crucifixions of his guilt.
convenient as it may be
little does he know or care
that it leads to the greatest capital of nowhere.
Saturday 15th October 2011 7:48 pm
tilting and rolling.
like sea-going spiders
having long spun their sunken webs
the trawlers are about to haul in
their silvery prizes
from beneath the high folding sea
and in the salty dark air
rigging lights dance above the tumult
mirroring themselves on the face of the swell
with piratical bullishness
he bellows commands above the...

there is always the dull
lingering aftermath of January,
albeit the beginning of the next countdown
to what the manufacturers
of fluffy,battery consuming
magically moulded plastic must haves
would come up with.
Mum had always softly advised me
never to expect too much.
so the thought of owning a rocking horse
was going to continue elu...

in Gods green room
cough turned into a splutter.
splutter turned into a laugh
in which they all
were unable to do anything else
but join in.

I conceived you
over many many years.
you slowly arose,beautifully unfolding
the guardian spirit of my heart
together we have arrived.

even in and despising
the cold light

I would have thought

vagrant winds arising
flinging themselves against our faces.

knee deep in the blown dissarray of grasses
though others roam here
none could have a greater love of this wild temple.
on we strode with renewed expectancies
leaving silent grace to wholey reclaim the presence of bea...

movements of others
he has to,using his honed skills,
negotiate a way through unaware,unapologetic crowds
but has no need to apologise for his affliction.
more than a match
for eagles eyes,his hearing
has to supercede his loss
the unseeing eyes

love flows from you
like a river of truth
cascading over and through me
pouring into and
soothing my tremulous heart
with purest deliverance.
my soul wantonly drowns
in the unambiguous reward

from a distance accompanied by the loss of control unashamedly compelled, I watch her undress in fragments of lamplight
silence,soft eddying breezes fill the space of night separating us.
privileged are my eyes to behold such beauty that I know will crown waiting slumber. too soon the vision of her and lamplit h...

the same shit clinging job

she pours the religion

with the armour of her loves blessing.

she is every barrier shining forever
in the face of all adversities.

she will be here with me

from the so called
places of knowledge visited
he has collected words
of self importance
that he needs
to help build pompous declarations
he is unaware,or probably would,nt care to know
that I too have travelled
into places of people
but not seeing anything

the warmth and I,
the cosy middle
between mattress and douvet
shivering into a crumpled heap of clothes
and unwelcomingly cold shoes.
after the obligatory bathroom visit
my stomach suggests
I fill the air with toasting, bacon frying and coffee aromas.
the used cutlery and dishes
give me the usual 'you won,t leave us till later-wi...

with hardly the time to close our eyes hoping the world will turn.
we only have time to redeem what little,others cannot save
fatality awaits,we are star-marked for death it waits but cannot tear down the sorry song of our hearts. a song the unpitying can never destroy. we shall welcome you one day with a gift of pity ...

it comes down to nothing other than mockery flesh fallen to strife
smouldering in hopelessness
in her blank stare eyes reflect nothing but neglection and haunt the dulled past.

taken each time
by the thought and
trying so hard to mentally prepare
for the loss of you
I practice a tearful act on my knee,s
to the words of 'oh my God-shes gone!
the act however
will demand of me the deepest belief
in the truth of such a disaster,or
is sorrow to bring about the reality
of a much heavier burden,
outwitting so great a...
