The Silver Chalice

I’m your silver chalice

And every drink you take; you’ll take from me

I’ll cool you with cool water when you’re warm

And in the cold I’ll warm you

And when you crave for me,

Take me to your lips

And smile at me the smile that launched

A thousand ships

Then I’ll gladly quench your thirst.

I’ll do anything that you need,

Guaranteed.

 

I’m your silver chalice

So...

A LOVERS EMBRACE

entry picture

To feel her warm and gentle hand

upon your smiling face,

her tender loving caress is like

a sweet and soothing grace.

 

Teasing, as your fingers

trace a tantalizing trek

along her silken stockings

as you tenderly kiss her neck.

 

Gazing into enchanting eyes

so deep with dark desire,

whirling pools of life and lust,

dancing in dangerous fires.

 

A hint o...

THE CLEANSING TIDE

entry picture

The child in his arms, such a precious gift,

her sweet little smile would make his heart lift.

Born into a love that none could compare,

baby blue eyes framed with curly blonde hair.

 

Conceived and born on such love filled days,

from the moment he held her he was blown away.

His heart did a flip and his smile was so wide,

his devotion to his daughter could not be denied.

Sometimes when life gives you hell.

I wanna give you heaven.

Lettin me into your family and life.

A true sign of love and trust.

I feel I always must tell you...

I love you. 

So the days you feel alone.

I'll be your tree to your lonely stone.

I wanna bring joy to your life.

Like Uncle Phil did to Will in Bel-Air.

I wanna bring you comfort every time we meet.

Vampiric Chivalry

entry picture

I am undone.
I am flayed –
not by a strike of hand
but of gentlemanly politeness.


I am bereft.
I am rejected –
not by a lover’s spurning
but of frustrated licentiousness

 

Will my vampire ever brave the depravity of reality,
from the enigmatic dark of brutal chivalry?

Run

entry picture

RUN
Take off and never come back.
Feelings left lost in a virtue of lust.
Take me with you, she said.
So far gone how could turn back. Immaculate love that can never be returned to what once was.
Uncanny emotions was all I ever showed.
Run, run, run, please don't come back.
The overwhelming urge to tell what's inside.
How the days go by without her at my side.
Fear for not what is, but fo...

The Butterfly Effect

I lay here cradling my mosaic heart, untwinned in your palms. My naked body and mind no longer intertwined, A fated dualistic death. I gave myself to you unwittingly, unknowingly, punishingly... Sensual, seductive emotions ravenously race through my every pore, One last butterfly kiss, wanting evermore. My heart decadently dances with perpetual palpitation...

GUARDIAN ANGEL

entry picture

To hold you up

if you start to fall

and fly to your side

whenever you call.

 

To hold you close

when dark closes in,

I’ll feed your heart

and beat from within.

 

To feel your warmth

and the glow of your smile,

when the clouds are parted

we can see for miles.

 

To hold your hand

through life's testing times,

to shield and protect

on those slippe...

Tomorrow is a scary place

entry picture

This life can peel away the layers of how I feel
Battling me down wanting my courage to steal
Sometimes I go into my dark place
For my dreams and fantasies I cannot face
Will not let fears of failure take my happiness away
I will have the strength to see the end of this day
What can be done about tomorrow
Maybe your dreams I will borrow
Look into a life that’s not mine

Touching your skin feels so intense

Leaves my breath hanging in suspense

Eyes sparkling with a fiery delight

Within me the love does ignite

Jenny is so beautiful in every way

Truly she is a wonderful lady

This I know and I don’t mean maybe

In the days of chaos when life is a tornado

Looking for some calm and a direction to go

Stand your ground and hold on to what is real

The storm will pass no matter how you feel

 

Bright skies and sunny days are ahead

Smiling wider that the Akashi Kaikyō Bridge

Go and take your energy drink from the fridge

lost highways

Later on we walked down to the jazz bar

Where Charles Mingus and Duke Ellington

Threw out wah-wah dreams

The trumpets whispered mysteries

Martini false dawns

Hi-hats leading us through the looking glass

We danced until death

Folding into each other like a deck of cards

Until we could take it no more

And as the saxophone reached its violent crescendo

And the jazz man c...

Beauty is not seen

entry picture

The mirror does not hold your reflection

Commanding instead the need for subjection

Vanity is the rule by which we live

Ruthless without the need to forgive

 

How long do you take looking for perfection

Beauty is real and also a distraction

Preparing ourselves for the talk of the eyes

Some words are true and others are lies

 

What point do we stop hiding that which we...

I will always need my Father and Mother

The roads I have gone and things I have seen

Without them who knows where I would have been

Available to solve anything I don’t understand

Always here to give me a helping hand

 

For all my years I have always needed them

Giving all their support from AM to PM

Sometimes in this world we need to be broken

It is only then a new life can be woken

Stripping away all that is damaged and lost

Forgetting the past and what it has cost

Rise from the ashes and aim for your goal

Believing in yourself is a good place to start

Is it time to rip the questions apart?

The one that got away

Thinking about her everyday

If she knew what would she say

Beautiful memories will remain

A past that is without stain

 

Remember the times we had together

They will always be my secret treasure

Under the darkness of daylight

You and I always felt right

 

The excitement I lived was real

Don’t know if my heart can heal

I know that time moves on

love without laws

entry picture

In love there is no law

Just the dreams that you saw

An open mind can be the key

Think wisely and you will see

 

You cannot run from tomorrow

Happiness is all you need to know

One future to live for another time

Maybe with fewer mountains to climb

 

The worries of the caring heart

Love that cannot be measured by a chart

Feelings of the unknown trust

From the past to the present

Cold as ice or as hot as fire

Words to hurt or to inspire

Loneliness fades into nothingness

Beauty that leaves us helpless

 

Seeing the possibilities

Planning the journeys

Believing life will not expire

As love does not retire

 

A solo can be beautifully strong

Duets are also a wonderful song

Choosing who you will be

Not a choice to take lightly

The thoughts I cannot forget

The wonder of when we met

The heart beats faster for every smile

Tearing right through the past

A bright future is the forecast

 

There will be a new life to live

With the one who is attractive

THE VOW

entry picture

If you see a distant star

in the evening sky

and you shiver from the chill night air,

yet you feel a warmth

in the depth of your heart,

then you know that I am still there.

 

When your tears have dried,

the bed has grown cold

and you're feeling lost and adrift,

when the days feel empty

and the nights far too long,

just remember, I gave you a gift.

Dodging Cupid's Arrow

To say
I don’t think of you
would be a lie
but I dare not pine
As you cross my mind

 

Do not
ascertain as I close
the bedroom curtains
my wildness is founded
in uncontrollable desire

 

Ignore that
contented smile
while you hold my gaze
I suggest gently that
you need new glasses

or less Dom Perignon
I’m sure it won’t be long
Before barman calls time

How much is she really worth?

How much is she really worth?

Her beauty is gift and a curse.

A gift to me.

A curse to her. 

Not really knowing why I want her.

Thinking my mind is stuck on lust.

But my mind is the opposite.

Her face is beautiful and her mind is equivalent.

She leaves a mystery after we talk.

Got me wanting to know more.

Exploring her mind besides her pants.

Romance

Just like a flower

our love 

blooms in the summer

and dies in the winter.

With nothing but memories left to show

what once stood tall,

has now

I touch your cheek,

I'm surprised, it's cold.

I reach for your hand

for I need it to hold.

 

I look upon your face

that beamed and sparkled

as we loved and laughed,

wrestled and tickled.

 

Your face is so pallid,

the sparkle is gone,

no more to smile

at the hot summer sun.

 

Your hair neatly tended,

you lie there so still

as I try, with memories,

Painful words thrown at my plate.

Prose about Her

 She is a beautiful woman, my mind is taken by her. But this is not the first time I have fallen to fancy. I tend to exaggerate in a longing for romance; yes, I could list many superlatives about her. But what would that say? Really, nothing might happen. She might love someone else. I might love someone else. Then this desire to potray her, as one who is ideal, so as to be poetic, is hopeless. I ...

i have wanted to tell her for a while now but i get all flustered when i try.

The Elevator

i knew that she was the one, i knew it from the moment i looked at her.
she had no idea that i knew and i just stood there and smiled to myself.
I probably looked like an idiot, grinning ear to ear but hey i couldn't help myself.
i had this warm feeling inside of me, feeling rather giddy if you may.
not quite to the point of laughter but enough to keep me entertained in the slightest of ways.

My Apology

To her, to them, and to the rest

Please know that I did my best

For you though the pain fills my chest

But to have known you, I feel so blessed

 

To the one who holds my aching heart

It is my fault that we’re apart

Funny, beautiful and oh so smart

But it is I who has been such a tart

 

The past remains a total blur

Temptations have been my torture, my lure

Bankruptcy

Grief is costly and I was broke, 
Not you or him or any bloke,
Could have filled my pot of casting love,
He pulled my purse-strings from above.
That heavy weight of stress I threw,
I shrunk and stole myself from you.
That constant stream of words that played,
For them, a fortune I'd have paid!
I foraged deep for that sweet tune,
But woeful blues, they filled the room.
You wouldn't know the...

Solstice

Come to me.

In darkening clouds

and balmy breeze

that boldly bucks

my willow tree

into enlightenment.

Come to me.

 

Touch me.

Touch me where

I ache the most

show the least

and love you the best.

Touch me.

 

Stay with me.

Share my twilight

sultry sensual stars

with a shine that

warns off dawn

of atonement.

Stay with me.

Colour of Love

My eyes reborn, he gifted them to me
Allowing me to find myself anew,
Surprising me with love to set me free
Then vowing to support me as I flew.

As cloudless skies appeared and all around
The colours changed from muted shades of grey,
Impressing me, new visions they astound
Another life, perfectly on display.

A chance of love, deep red and purest white
With sunshine hues reflecting down ...

END OF THE LINE

entry picture

The heat of a sultry summers day

and the news wasn’t good,

you were going away.

 

Vow’s made by the lovers brook

are just trickling memories

of a love that you took.

 

A heart that once was full of life

is now but an empty shell

on the edge of a knife.

 

A vignette, closing in on a world,

as into the deep dark abyss

my mind was hurled.

THE BALLAD OF THE SKATEBOARDING ANT

entry picture

If you've ever seen an ant

go whizzing by

faster than his friends and

with goggles on his eye's,

then without a doubt,

skidding through the plants,

you've met my friend Albert,

The skate-boarding ant.

 

From the day he was born

he was rushing around

hither and thither,

like a spring unwound.

His mum would despair,

“Albert, please stand still.

SHATTERED REFLECTION

entry picture

The hands of time tick slowly by

as dawn breaks in a new day.

A nightmare reality of

the receding night lies marked,

like so many fading stars,

in the shattered glass on the floor.

 

Silken shards of sorry souls,

their lives now trapped

in a dream of what was then,

what is now and

what should never have been.

 

Each broken image,

a moment in time captured

The Rain Has No Answers

I have all these feelings 
Or is it had?
I don’t even know how to express it. 
Laying in bed wide awake because these thoughts of you just won’t turn off. 
My body tired but my mind is too wired to rest. 
So I went in search of the one who always listens to me,
No matter how stupid or emotional I get.
He just sits up there and listens...
So I sat in the summer rainstorm.

When I Sleep

It happens so rarely, 
this feeling of peace--
of tiredness that will surely
finally lead to sleep, 
that I decided to go with it.
To not be wary or cautious--
to just fully embrace where both
my mind and body were dragging me.
And I was pleasantly surprised that as 
my eyes drifted closed
and my body became heavy
My mind wandered into your open arms--
Your warmth spreading throughout ...

a wronged wash in the what might have been

where we fidget like fleas on a rabbits hide

with the pre-packed presumption of lilies

and static

abstract amongst the sheets

your limbs offer a confusion of choice

where context is lost

Alan (Henning)

Its Saturday night at the taxi rank

street angels are steering girls to the cabs;

legs over tits like a Picasso and

it’s wild, and it’s laughter, and songs are buzzin’.

 

So can you hear the people weeping?

can you see the children dying?

All you knew was love, Alan, all you knew was love

as you drove your taxi through this world.

 

And the laughter and the love in t...

Battered Napkin

I wrote on a napkin the lyrics of my love for you
My intention never being to give them to you
It was only to get them out of me
I just wanted to scribble this madness on this 
 white, disposable paper--
Hoping in time it would break down--
 taking my words into the ground with it
But once they were out--
Once they were written--
Once they became so real and I realized just

I guess I'm afraid to love you

I put on my mask when I woke up in the morning.

The silent grins and the innocent eyes.

Filtering the truth I feared could dry the sea,

I smiled and laughed, they thought I never cry.

Through the reflection, I saw myself.

I stared at those eyes and sometimes I don’t know who it was.

My heart would’ve repel itself from this body, if it has the chance to succeed.

You deny the truth that you love.

You came in right after he broke my heart
The crack was too wide for you to mend 
You came in right after he broke my heart
I dragged you across the yard to feel my pain.

I can see love written all over your eyes
You bathe me in those eyes everyday
And yet all I could give was just a piece of my heart. 

You tried to fill the crack in my ...

Serendipity

You’re like a perfect picture of everything
Your mind, your laugh
That genuine smile 
You’re like a breath of fresh air
So pure, curable
It’s insane how you made me feel 
You want me to believe I’m sane. 

I almost lost in all hopes
Love, life, happiness in whole
It was a downfall, endless hole
Somehow you came into my life 
And proved the world isn’t that bad after all.

Your words ...

Severed Connection

 
The connection between us
The communicating
The friendship
The love
The joy
It seems entirely gone
Just like our form of communicating
Or the internet
Or soon, my silver chord
Which holds my soul onto this plane of existence
This unbreakable cord
Just like the red string
Just like me
Has been severed
