Your eyes said it all ...

entry picture

Your eyes said it all, there were no words

I had no excuse, I had no defence

A moment of madness, but still I knew

 

Knew I had wronged you, knew it was me

But still I was blameless, another’s fault

The other had tempted me, she was the one

 

You sat there crying, wringing your hands

Silence so full of feeling it cut me deep with

layers of our love slipping away in every tear drop

Lost Child

entry picture

I never saw him grow up, I never watched him bloom

Taken away on the day of birth, I never knew his name!

 

I bought a cuddly rabbit and named him after me

Then left him by the bedside as a token of my love

 

A child born of a child, he didn’t stand a chance

Whisked away to a ‘better life’, I wonder where he is?

 

I know I could never have given him, all that he deserved

Questions in shadow

entry picture

Too many broken promises

Too many doors block the truth

My life is a worn out recipe

of something that never was cooked

 

Feelings that often gave chase

on the beautiful face of a child

are now deeply buried and hidden

neath the dust and the cobwebs of age

 

Of what I was once is now missing

lost in a multitude of lies

with mislaid sanity gazing

into empty eyes of dread

Cleaning my own teeth, dressing myself

Sitting on a proper chair, eating real food

Being understood, and wearing proper pants

 

Then in a flash of life I was seven and reading

Asking questions all the time, with my nose running

Trying to catch a ball, eager to learn, to live, to laugh

Never really understanding but alive in every atom

Coming out

entry picture

 

Tender days of yearning, longing to be free

Love amongst the school books, crying out his name

What was this teenage worship, how did I want him so

Was this to be my future, was I to join the foe

 

Would I be one so bullied different from the norm

Trapped in a world of bias, hiding all my feelings

Forever as a shadow, creeping through the night

Alive and just existing but only deep in...

Dead Whispers

entry picture

 

I craved solace from a whirlwind of hesitation

Always doubting my crazy path across the heavens

In essence, a week of Tuesdays had stilled my heart

Leaving yet more carefree flotsam in my mind

 

The shimmering light descended on my shadowed eyes

Scorching the hallowed anguish that hid behind

So feeling nothing more than an emptiness of virtue

Isolation, my new best friend, got up to...
