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
Your boyfriend, your lipstick, you just wer...

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
Thursday 17th July 2014 11:55 am
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.
Friday 4th July 2014 1:27 pm
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...
Will you be able to love me?
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
unfolding your virtues to my soul
even sealing it with a loving kiss
on that fateful day
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

I look into your eye but their not the same colorful vibrant eyes I once knew. After years of being hurt, used, abused and cheated on, you're only a shadow of who you once were. No more do you trust guys, you've given up hope of all that is love and trust you come to me to vent to, to let your tears out. It seems you can't even trust me. I won't ever leave I will show you what real love is if give...

I woke up, I dreamt of you, I dreamt of your lips...
those lips that draw my lips with music
and arise as an immense love song
I felt you; lust is consummated...
it secretly opens on my lips,
nocturnal theater of my dreams
making me speechless when caresses and kisses start
Your lips ...
embrace me, invite me to your bed;
that build up metaphors in my soul;...

What makes me love you,
in this inexplicable connection
while in you sleep I would kidnap your heart?
For one of your kisses I would die if necessary...
a warm kiss on the thin thread of dawn,
there close to your soul
What makes me love you,
without offering me anything,
just these nights of memories,
leaving your footprints in the most quiet way?

were long ago hollered and rolled up

Sights and signs remain crystal bright.

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.
Do you hid...

You are the tree that grew inside me
when I swallowed your stone whole.
When I spoon-fed you with silvern words
you rooted in my deep.
Each morning I’m reborn by you
polishing the dawn till it blossoms in pink.
Exchanging moss coated whispers
our rain softened glances trickle between us.
I am grafted to the notches on your spine.
Spiralling together, we reach for the light.

There's a boy
In a house
In a room
Thinking of you.
There's a girl

In a room
Thinking of you.
There's a boy
There's a girl
They are in the same room.

My parents laugh from the other room,
Their happiness makes me sad.
I wonder if they are aware
Of my broken heart
Or if they have ever experienced
An ache like mine.
His face is everywhere:
In a building with a million corridors
I can't ignore,
The feeling of a ghost
Lurking sore in the pathways of my mind
There is nothing to be said or done.

You are back finally
It's been dull around here
When you said goodbye
It marred my soul
But, let's forget the past
You are here now.
She has broken my hearing
With her high velocity screams
I built a wall.
Now that you are here,
She can't bring it down.
You light my insides
Let go, see me fly;
See me young.

A CHILDS EYE
Imagine a world of love and laughter
Of fun filled days and freedom till after
The tea time call or the playtime bell
Get back into line or you'll catch some hell
Imagine a world of wildness and wonder, of fun and jest
Of questions and answers and adventurous quest
When time was your own and life was a whim
To walk, to run through grass so long, to swim
Imagine a world ...

Only once all gardens blossom
And all around looks awesome.
That was in the blooming spring,
In the delightful evening,
When my love was singing.
His words were just priceless,
I believed him with lightness,
I thought it was my happiness.
Only once we meet our spring,
Only once our love bells ding,
A sweet breeze in the air sing.
The stars fell...

Diamonds & Dirt
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend
But at the cost my dear, at the cost
Of never boring them, you are their
Entertainment, they are your love.
Diamonds if they could talk would tell
A causatory tale of distance and dirt
You, a perfect diamond, a pure light
In the compressed dirt of their lives.
Diamonds reflect the compression
Which is the brevity of our lives

If seeing is believing
than I had believed,
on that fine morning
was I so relieved,
to see you and talk
no idea where my ship will dock,
never was I so daring
to come to you in first place,
never was I so stupid
to ever fall for your grace.
But who am I after all
when all the greats couldn't save their fall,
to this pit called love
then how could I be any above.
Pull you had on me

the black watch in the earth’s high rafters provide

that I may cast them at your window
cheering me on from their

the shivered, brittle, steel
as if peripatetic coal dust shawls

arabesque is brittle

I was happy and never knew it,
Sad and knew it so well.
Love slipped by but I never noticed,
though love has marked me well.
Winter passed and summer came
yet I was living in the cold.
My lover has turned and passed me by
and outside the world grows old.
Happiness is trapped for me
When love had cast its spell

Murderous daggers of madness shoot from his eyes.
Eyes hollow, dark revenge.
Skin blue, his shape shifting.
Turning into a form I know not who.
I search desperately for any hint of the man I thought I knew so well,
Nothing but a slippery cold creature who has no love to give.
Scurrying back into his black hole, to fester with dark satanic demons.
Howl to the moon
Howl to the sun

you are ticking the subscription of a shotgun smile
the restless reminder, the stranger behind you,
twice barrelled quarantine of lush glories
tar fingered around the ringed copper, broken and unworthy,
smoking in the buttoned up knowledge of hereditary tracts,
winter tracks and the plastic penance of a youthful slaver
“x” shan't mark the spot where we shall bury you
