Or watched her go about her day,
In a pleasant kind of way,
And realize that you are happy too,
Just because she laughs with you.
And know that if she were to ask,
You would accept her any task,
And do it with unblinking speed,
If only it was you she’d need.
Have you ever known such despair?
To always have an angel there,
Who gives meaning to each pass...

I know I say things that make your jaw drop
Then I'll flash you a smile that'll make your heart stop
I'll get under your skin just because I know I can
Because when it comes to being sane, I guess I'm not a fan
I know I drive you crazy and you want to wring my neck
I came off so innocent and now you never know what to expect
We go from screaming at each other to waking up togethe...

I knew from the moment you walked in my line of vision
And my heart hit my chest with each beat causing a collision
You were suppose to be someone that I was better off without
But I let you come right in my life without any doubts
Your crooked smile showed your perfect teeth
And I fell onto my knees, crumbling underneath
Underneath your charm oh how you had me hooked

I’ll gather the Cockles from Red Wharf Bay
Best soaked overnight in salt water they say
Then boil them in water that is fresh from the tap
Then simmer, five minutes, they open no crap
A bowl with some milk and the Cockles go in
Then stir with your hand like they’re having a swim
Remove and then place them in self-raising flour
Once coated, then sieve. This star...

Way passed the sleep hour.
I stand surrounded in surreal stillness.
This moon shy night admits no ray.
Penetrates my mind. A church bell chimes:
And the deadly silence strikes
That deep dark hole of the head.
Nothing is awake.
Yet, something appeals. I know it is out there.
Minutes tick by.

The leaves are blossoming.
The time of lime green ripeness is here.
They cling onto the branches,
Their tips winnowing in the gentle breeze.
The few leaves which cling no longer,
Rustle on the floor
And are swept away at dusk.
The branches continue to shake
And the leaves, in their vitality and freshness,
Partake in the knowing, changing course.

The cloud came into view
In smooth sail, blue and light blue,
Forgetting its pre-planned plight
And encircling me with Magnificent fright.
The cloud soon burst
And quenched my thirst.
As down comes the rain
It drives me all insane.
The cloud, with all its majestic powers
Drowns me in its showers,
Sent from above- its heavenly towers.
As it r...

The tide comes in once more,
My feet tap in the shallow
As I gaze out at my hallow,
My lady lies on the opposite shore.
The deep ocean seems so shallow,
The radiance of the moon shimmers on the sea.
Thursday 4th September 2014 1:16 pm
A sky for a blanket .
Blue and light blue, grey and dark grey.
Clouds as moths wavering to and afar,
Circling natures son in the cradled hood.
Ah! Let my breath catch this beauteous scene
Could I escape from you?
I hold my breath to capture this moment
None would need nepenthe.

Such were the joys,
When we were girls and boys,
That at night when we lay in our nest
Ready for rest,
We were no more seen
Beneath the fair moon beams.
When into play came those rosy lips,
Dews of passion arose in vapoured wisps.
As your fingers lay fitted in mine,
The faithless turned to think of the divine.
And all that was chained in depth and height,
Had broadened, freeing the so...

In green meadows, lovers sit side by side,
In soft whispers, to one another, they confide,
Pain, sorrow and loss they have defied.
My love could not decide, with or without me,
My love could not decide.
Long hours lovers spend,
With joy and passion they befriend,
Time and love to them has no end.
Our time has come and gone my love,
Our love is...

The leaves pick up
And swirl and twirl beneath me,
Rising, to the swirling-twirling in my head.
Leaves leave of branches
And as if dancing to a tune,
Touch ground to be no more.
The branches shake now and then
Whilst the tree stays sturdy strout
Un-moving, unknowing to nature’s changing course
The nest lay (or what was left of it) mercilessly ravaged,...

The heart sees no curfew

Sees his morning harden upon the wall...

Little birds come chirping gay,
The moon sets; up has come day
Three weeks now set into may.
The birds fly free, unlike me
The birds fly free.
Street lights have made way,
For the mighty bright sun shines our bay
And still, this is all I can say:
Yet she is not mine love,
Yet she is not mine.
Carts ply busily on road,
Some load, some unload.

As the nineteenth autumn has come upon me,
It’s a whole new world I see.
Treacherous creatures, so often, hush and hide,
And it seemeth to me , a change in tide.
The poetry of soothing sensation has gone,
The glimmering golden glow of the sun is now none.
Some say ,’ The Head is battling with the Heart’,
Well ! All Logic has been torn apart.
As I gaze into...

Guided by the faintest of light
Though the world casts its shadows
They kept their dreams alive. People stop and judge them
For what I just don't know
But they keep travelling on
Though they've got no place to go. Love brought them together
Pain has torn them apart
Just two lost souls in the darkness
Joined together through a broken heart. ...

We lie back on the boat’s prow,
Hand in hand beside each other.
The sky is as silent as we are,
Though, our Hearts beat
In such rhythmic frenzy,
That the sky can stay calm no longer.
It rumbles, and vexes the meditative mood.
We wait, anxious, for the little Drops
To fall from Heaven;
As it always does on days like these:
The inexpressible joy and quietness of perfection.
One of those...

This place I cant leave
Though its here I grieve:
A long lost desire,
Ceased to a misfire.
Its also a place I’ve learnt to Love,
To soar into the distance High Above,
To express the joys of my soul,
And to take in Life as a whole.
To accept balance, delicately
And seize Earth’s offerings, intricately
To strive forward, positively,
Overcoming all negativity.
To touch smoothly,...

This spontaneous outflow of emotion has come again
Its been quite a while now, old friend.
You who made the Golden Glow of the sun none
And seemed to pave the way all too soon.
But the tide has changed now, like I once thought it did.
The poetry of soothing sensation,
The feeling of all a-new, has come again
To rejuvenate my senses, and yours.
To think and feel passions new to me,
Tuesday 2nd September 2014 12:36 pm
Placed here at heavens feet, where
At horizon blue meets its two shades.
Where the foamy spray
And the hungry teeth of the sea
Jive with the fiery leaps of the waves.
Where the undercurrents futile backlash
Is nullified by the seas thunderous motion.
Where truth arises out of a child building a sandcastle.
Only to be incessantly devoured by the waters onrush.

There's a part of your brain
Yet to be further explained
A beautiful mystery begging for more
You may think not on things such
But scientists admit to as much
There are these matters still to explore
Links between scents, songs and memories
Aroma of fresh popcorn fills the stands
Takes you back to whistle-blowing refs, heckle-howling fans
High-top sneakers squeaking up and down the ...

Capture your beauty
If I could carve you, it wouldn't be wood
It wouldn't do you justice, it wouldn't be good,
If I were to carve you, only marble would do
To capture that beauty, the beauty in you,
If I was to carve you,
In the style, of the old roman way
I would carve it to last, I would carve it to stay
I would take my time and I would not rush
I'd be ever s...

These memories fade into me
Each time I gather
They become seamless
They've woven themselves into the stars
Beauty as they are
It is my past
To the melody of my soul
I caught them dancing
As if they didn't mind the memories that cried
They thought them loveliness
Please watch for when they fall
That is you or I falling to harmonize...

I'm in love.
A soft breeze rustles the leaves on the trees just outside my window. All is silent save the ocean roaring in the distance at a rhythm too lovely for words. And the wooden clock in the corner holds his pace, savoring this time of night when his tick tick tick is finally heard. It's dark now, all around, except some photos sliding in and out on my computer screen.

Please don't go, leaving me up here all alone in the cold
Please don't go, no blanket, no hugs because your too "old"
Please don't go, too busy, too good, not childish enough for me to hold
Please don't go, I need you, my mommy, my sunshine my gold
Please don't go, I'm lost now, without you alone and covered in mold
You loved me, you held me until college came

Through the darkness of my life I walked a road which led me to you and I knew from the very first moment that you and I would be inseparable,.we exchanged glances across a crowded room, and in that instant I saw paradise, in your eyes I saw all the magic in the world, and I fell hopelessly in love.
I sat perplexed for a moment, pondering on whether I could find the courage deep within to approac...

deep red eyes tell stories lips are afraid to speak
the lies and the worries that everyone's eyes are afraid to see
you hurt me
I say to myself every night trying to make the pain go away
but in reality the pain cuts deeper than a knife and I forget the words to say
seems to be better than realizing i had a part to play
seeing with my own eyes all of the evil ways

It may sound cliché , but I don’t even know what I want from love anymore
Another chance to fall ?
In an attempt to allow someone that I’m not even sure really loved me to be there to catch me in the end ?
Because no matter how hard you fight in the end it’ll never be worth it
People say love is a beautiful thing , but nobody has shown me why
I’ve heard that good things ...

The sinful taste of poisoned lips
I'm drunk on him, immerse me
Deserving of his fingertips
Explore me, show no mercy.
Lustful urges, all consuming
In blackness, I await him
The need is overpowering
Will I sink or will I swim?
In midnight light, he comes to me
With wanton hands he captures
Undresses me with savage glee
Each touch he breaks and ...

Casual exterior hides the mind
In restless turmoil can't unwind
Ask the question, take a chance
Would i warrant a second glance,
Could you? Would you? Let me please
Sit beside you, give hugs that squeeze
Kiss, caress and hold you tight
Explore eachother through the night,
Walk along a moonlit shore
Bared feet, bared hearts, souls entwined
The free expressi...

Dew soaked blades
To the morning rain
To reveal our bodies
A simmering cocktail
Of raindrops and sweat
Bathing in the petrichor
We reached the summit
Closing my eyes in glory
Bottling the scent deep within
Opening them to find you

You are sunkissed hair
All seaside skin
The tomboy princess
Scraped knees, bruised shins.
A tree climbing angel
My hide and seek belle
All beauty and promise
Like an old wishing well.
Such a natural leader
As you're learning and growing
You shine like a beacon
So head strong and knowing.
Bringing joy in abundance
As I watch you develop...

Now I know what they sing about.
Love songs, break ups, heart aches, make ups.
Every inch now rings true
Now my blue heart is squeezed and strained through the pain
That I might not end up with you
My body in revulsion.
I want to fall, cry, throw up or I may choke
my heart and I've broken it too
But I love you so much and I don't know what to do...
But write bad poetry, d...

Two trees bending,
Heads touching brows
Beneath; a pool,
Swilling softly into peaks
Of undulating rhythms.
And save for swaying, nothing moves.
Nothing has to.
Sitting on its dewy banks,
Time dancing on tiptoes,
So as not to disturb the hush
Of sunsets watching silent souls sleeping.

I close my eyes to see you again
I can feel you with every beat of my heart
Can smell you, can taste you
With each breath
My mind takes me back to the start
You had me hook, line and sinker
From the moment we met
As my feet touched your shores for the first
With each passing day, you did blow me away
With your passion, your joy and your thirst
As your culture consumed...

And though I searched, I could not recognise a soul
Well she was blind from compromise
And as she talked, I recognised that time had taken toll
But the bottle was beguiling
She’s satisfied in silence as she sits
And she’s satisfied with silence ‘cause it fits
Oh yeah, it fits

A raving, craving, fiending junkie.
Incessantly nodding, affirming yes,
Consistently giving, despite duress. Love turned me into a puppet pauper,
A penniless, lack-luck, begging gawper.
Constantly scrounging, loose change sifter,
Tirelessly searching, dime store drifter. Love turned me into a courtly fool,
A grinning, spinning, ignorant tool.

You make me invoke the liberating pleasure
that radiates on my skin, in unconsummated desires,
as autumn showing lust, with delirium and graciousness...

Intoxicate me with sex, with nights that uphold me;
there is no greater delight than to sin with the flood of your kisses
and the madness of this moment
I adore to be loved!

Her heart beats to the rhythm of a broken tune
Unable to soar
Like an unfinished song
She longs to be complete.
Her heart is gold, yet tarnished
Impacted by the years
Of aching thoughts
Begging in her head.
Her heart is fragility at it's finest
Take it in your hands.
Let her fragments be repaired
Only by you.

Until the sun is bruised and the birds are gone,
I will be here.
So, if you want rid of surrounding eyes
then it's best you break my heart.
A word of warning before you do,
this smile you see now will never be for you,
not one minute more.
It'll be for the faint azure;
for the innocent laugh of my baby nephew
who doesn't know pain like mine -
I pray he never does....

Don't love me everyday
For the rest of my life
Don't promise me the world
Or make me your wife
I don't need empty words from you
There's no need to exclaim
No want for explanation
No need to rid the blame
When you say that you don't love me
I feel nothing but relief
It resonates inside of me
Confirms my own belief
Unlovable perhaps, it seems
The way it has to...

As she looks upon the man
Her eyes give her away
And you can see the truth
Of her heart and soul
She loves him, her father
Complete love, innocence
So beautiful and magical
With eyes as bright as the moon
A smile that shines like the sun
Their bond is unbreakable
For her love knows no limits
She will forever be his daughter
Her hero he will be

Wednesday's Child, I kept you
At the length of an arm
I hope I didn't cause you any harm.
Guilt ridden, I look at you now
As brave as a full grown man
But just a child, unflinching
Batting away each challenge
That comes your way.
Wednesday's Child, your spirit
Knows no bounds, full of woe?
I don't think so. No.
Full of resilience and strength

The Rose opened its heart petal by petal
unfolding its virtues to the naked eye
You opened your heart page by page

even sealing it with a loving kiss

It was only to last seven weeks
until your gun was pointed at my head
the double barrel between my eyes
you hated the concept of equality
