Significance of the Nineteenth Autumn

entry picture

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 the vast emptiness
The d...

Ever-was

I long to return,

To the land of Ever-was,

So that I can learn,

Why it was we never were.

 

And if I discern,

What it was you wanted then,

Then I will return,

To when-we’re-not again.

Isolated

Your touch still lingers on my skin like the warm yet cold breeze of the wind,

 

Your kiss heavy leaves an imprint on my lips like the moist rain that steadily drips,

 

Your laugh still gives me the bees in my gut like hiding from the storm in that little hut,

 

Your body close to mine in a gentle embrace like the love surrounding our little space,

 

Your voice calmin...

Forsaken Love

Prince Charming  a soul meant to roam my heart,
 
A deadly man with a poisoned dart,
 
The breath of a gentle kiss, 
 
Or the meaning of this eternal bliss,
 
The one who walked right into my life, 
 
Taking my heart with a knife,
 
Who knows what there is to behold, 
 
But this love is not to be sold, 
 
Take it wisely as you run,

Have you ever heard an angel laugh?

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...

The Sweetest Drug

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...

Trouble

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

You make...

COCKLES (FOR YOUR HEART)

 

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...

Stillness

entry picture

Its 3am.

Way passed the sleep hour.

I stand surrounded in surreal stillness.

This moon shy night admits no ray.

No thought

Penetrates my mind. A church bell chimes:

Tick thrice.

And the deadly silence strikes

That deep dark hole of the head.

Nothing is awake.

Nothing moves.

Yet, something appeals. I know it is out there.

But where?

Minutes tick by.

Nature reclaimed

entry picture

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.

Two Lost Souls

Two lost souls in the darkness
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. ...

Links Between

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

               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

Awoken

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 Feel Fall

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.

Eternity

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...

what is love ..

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

Thirty.

 

 
I’m never going to be thirty,
I’m never going to win,
I’m always going to wonder,
If I’m ready to begin.
I’m never going to be thirty,
My years should always stick,
Beheld at twenty,
With youth a plenty,
And wild hearts fast and thick.
I’m never going to be thirty,
My body cannot change,
So a splendid birthday party,
May you not arrange.

The Visitor

 

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 ...

To Love In The Summer Rain

 

 

Dew soaked blades

Succumbed

To the morning rain  

Surrendering

To reveal our bodies

As one

Skin glistening

 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

Gone

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

A Poem Making no Attempt to be Good

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
You've broken
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

Two trees bending,
Heads touching brows
Under starlight,
Sunrise,
Sunset,
Moonlight.

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...

Amores Perros

There's a famous quote by Billy Bremner that says,
"Every time Leeds concede a goal,
I feel like I've been stabbed in the heart"

Now you don’t need to have stepped much further than your own front door to know what the man was talking about
And you don’t really need to be a football fan either
This is when you’re nothing but a vessel
and nothing in existence compares to that one thin...

That delicate way you take me to that distant place
I never really told you because you never asked
And I never really notice until I’m left to chase
I’ve barely stopped to breathe and the moment’s passed
 
And that delicate way you break me, design my night and day
Devotion soon devours, anxiety would roam
And then I'm scrutinising sentences, every single word you sa...

Maria, Full Of Grace

I saw the beauty in her eyes
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
 
And she would stop herself from smiling
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
I saw the sadness in her sighs

On the Influences of Love

Love turned me into a circus monkey,
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.

there is no greater delight than to sin with the flood of your kisses

For you

Her heart beats to the rhythm of a broken tune

Staccato

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

Silent

Begging in her head.

 

Her heart is fragility at it's finest

Take it in your hands.

Broken

Let her fragments be repaired

Only by you.

My Smile Is Not For 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

Daddy's Girl

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

My Darling Psychopath

If all you told were lies,

I heard only truth.

If manipulative were your motives,

I was putty in your hands.

If you used me for excitement,

I was thrilled for you.

If your emotions were all feigned,

I was your audience, suspended by the fiction.

If love you never felt,

I loved it for you,

And if conscience, you had none,

I was moral for us both.

our rain softened glances trickle between us.

I am grafted to the notches on your spine.
