Love at last sight, a triolet.

I fell in love with you at last sight
and now we shall meet no more.
You vanished like a vampire in the daylight.
I fell in love with you at last sight.
Like sweets you regret leaving, on the shelf, at the store.
I fell in love with you at last sight
and now we shall meet no more.

A Dream Come True

Feelings that once were hidden
Are now expressed to you.
Days that once were stormy
Are now the brightest blue.

Times that once were lonely
Are now filled with pleasure.
All that once was mine alone
Are now things we both treasure.

Nights that once were cold
Are now comforting and warm.
Fears that once were very real
Are now gone with the storm.

A heart that once was broken
Can now fi...

My Baby Boo

Today my heart felt a blow,
By a view so divine.
I let my emotions flow,
Like a 30 year old wine.

There it was in that tiny box,
With pulses of energy shooting through,
That blurry image came across,
Like the inside of a Great Gray Kangaroo.

I felt her hand touching mine,
Held her hand - fingers entwined,
Watching my angel wriggle and shine,
With the life of Us combined.

Seeing y...

Tear off my guilt,

innocence will fall,

His discipline
was her most
desired mercy.

He subdued
and elated her

He affronted
her with exquisite

She kept him
with sacrilegious

of a memory,
she was yet
to treasure.

In their intimacy
he humiliated her,
until she learnt

Unfounded –
they remained unfound.

In ecstasy.

Once Upon A Dream

The night sparkled with a dream,

As I crept closer towards my bed's cloak,

Covering the mist of the evening's tears,

Warmth, I felt,

And in the Wonderland,

I wander.


There he is again,

Carrying the loveliest of red roses,

A bouquet meant for love,

Prickly, I thought,

Only smoothness, I feel,

Even his hands vanish the thorns.


He holds my hand so tight,

A smiling face beamed out

A beautiful face


A face for hands to caress

For delicate kisses


The face so honest

Behind its beauty

No sadness could hide

The grace exposed the pain

When Love Sleeps

entry picture

Slipping toward the rift of dreams

A honey-suckled breeze

Kissed their invisible seams


The teak frames pushed seaward

Cotton drapes caressed the salted air


Two bodies

Entwined to one

The day had drawn its map

Each had the others heart

Ensnared in lovers trap


Their footprints

Trod unpressed by flesh

Down to the waters edge

Where under gold and i...

He was her all black and blue

He was her every backward move


Bitten lips, sugar swollen tongues

unable to breathe, only to succumb


Wild-rose rush, indecorous release

bewildered by being hostage beneath


Afterwards, he whispers her to him:

“You are so loved,

                   you are so loved.”

Always remember the beach

How about the beach? Sandy feet, fresh breeze.                                                            Seize the sunlight, beam just as bright 

How about flying a kite? Light, the campfire, just right.                                             Tent settled, just behind that tree you see? 

How perfect could this be? Gazing beside one another; amongst grass and stars  We huggled as if it ...

Lusting Sin

Lust consumes those who fall or the trap

Confusion or jealousy twitches above eyes

Desire to amount to more than the simplicity of existing 

Desire to feel desired 

Tender affection is rejected by violin strings of broken beings 

Sympathy will be forbidden, the truth hidden 

Blackness only welcomes sin.

Travelling tonight

Is a heart full of hollow

On trails that it knows

No lover will follow


Travelling tonight 

Is a case full of broken

Through clouds of old memories

With a notebook a token


Travelling tonight

Is a currency spent

That put all on one runner

So much more than was meant


Travelling tonight

It is free from desire

That Little Four Letter Word Called Love

entry picture

In the game of love, the act that should be the last, is now the opening salvo. But, as a man… why am I complaining?

This one is a work in progress. A bit bitter after hearing a fellow poet dismiss men’s romantic verse as “cheesy”, I thought how the shaggers / fuckers call them what you will, win and the decent folk are cast aside in these common times…

Karl Marx said religion was the ...

Delicate Love-

Delicate Love


            Moving day; a time of excitement, worry and letting go. My baby girl has finished college, married the man of her dreams and is beginning a new chapter in her life.  The van left an hour ago and on a whim I went to the attic to make sure she had everything. I glanced around and tucked in the corner the words “china” in girlish writing popped out at me.

Several times i was around you,

Several times in your heart.

You promised to love me forever,

And i did hold on to that thought.


So love hold me tight now more than ever,

Soon you will be gone and this time will be over.

Again there will be long days and lonely nights,

Without you being there by my side.


You will be far far away in the land of fire and fury,

Dumb Destiny

I cannot speak to you anymore.

Though over these clay hearted years,

we never really spoke at all.


So now it finally must end

as I am taken once again

by collared, artistic agenda.


I cut languid love loose

re-tie dumb, devoted knots

that only he will now render.


Forbidden of fruitful verse

which may wistfully introduce

play on words of mourning.

Secondhand Merchandise

You want a bit of me, don’t you?

Although I have a previous owner

You are tempted; I could be yours

I warn you, I’ve been well worn

There are a few rips and tears scarring my history

I am faded; my image only just visible

But, you’re secretly impressed

You’ve been after one like me for years

Hunt me down

Make your offer

Try me

No need to wear me in

Tongue and Cheek

entry picture

It has taken ahold of me once more.

Basking and marinating;

my life is in limbo.

At a halt,

with a glance,

Hope arises,

and then just as quickly sets as the sun.

Moments are cherished 

but then despised with a gun.

Feeling the chambers loaded with each shell,

the thought it so real, 

so quick,

so painless.

So easy.

But where does that leave us?

Somewhere in between

the waking and the dream,

I can feel you close to me.


Just before times hands

reshape the desert sands,

I can feel you reach for me.


In the blink of tear stained eyes,

watching weary to the skies,

I can see you cry for me.


In the breaking of the dawn,

in the dew upon the lawn,

I can see you smile for me.

Sitting a stool;

It came to me as before
Strumming the tune; and
the music flew.
in beautiful silence.
My deep, dark defiance
So many times I have tried

clearing the throat
of faded memories
still vivid only to me
The pitch is horse
As the feelings are on course
The patter continues; and

How can something so sweet, be so bitter?

Your love was something special, it has never withered.

The night sky comes creeping in as a shadow

As soon as the light is gone, my smile fades

The true side of my heart turns old and gray

For I do not wish to keep living this way

The bottle has been too friendly to me, these last couple days

Save some love for yourself


All I ever wanted was to be all that someone needed

I thought once I achieved that, my loneliness was defeated 
And here you came, I'll give you all my love, you repeated
And happy was I to be the one who received it
Your love was slow and kind
You took the time to discover all the little specs in my mind
As the seasons came and gone, we painted the sky with our bliss

Even the rain

Even the rain runs away

Soaked at first

Then gone

It evaporates like love

When sun on it is shone


Even the rain runs away

It scrambles for the gutter

Taking with it cast off day

Detritus, junk and clutter


Even the rain runs away

Though some would have it lie

To flood the desert plains

And mirror the sheltering sky


Even the rain does mimic you

Sleep my lovely, and dream my lovely.

Close your eyes and see, my lovely.


See the fifth dimension that has formed within you,

See the universe behind your eyes.

See the truth behind the lies, see the world without disguise.

Creating a rip through the milky way.

Black holes begin to turn and swirl,

When I watched up,
Up into the pitch-black sky,
I saw your name written amongst the stars.
For you, my love, are my guiding light
Leading me home into your arms,
Where I am protected from all hurt.
And when I looked around me,
I heard the wind blow through the leaves
and the wind whispered your name.
But, my love, although just a whisper in the wind,

Memories.  Hanging bright as the whitest moon

in my blackened, indecorous thoughts.


I was his lover, his muse, his friend,

his counsel over secret canal side walks.

Both sharp suited, professional by day,

we drove fast through boundaries

into love first after taking vows of never.

Just You

Some days the only thing
that can drown out my 
thoughts are crashing
waves and sand.

And other days an 
old, wood rocking chair
and a summer rain.

But most days I just need

your strength-

to quiet my mind.

The forgotten land

entry picture

Cornered in darkened rooms

Early love clutches and gropes at its discovery

Wet mouthed, hastily hot

Exploring contours and scars yet unknown


The fullness of time will expose the landscape

Hesitation and excitement may melt away

Or endure if lust holds love close enough

If roots bury their memories beyond the familiar

If fragility is celebrated and not broken

Caring through Silence

I cannot feel your pain.

Your body is numb,

Your mind in hibernation.


For now, let yourself rest

In June’s heat and chatter.

It will take time to be

that knight again

that I cherish so.


But I am there.


Within the silence

I am there.

Consider me as a friend,

A shoulder of support for your unknown cause,

A helping hand in your greatest needs

And seek me for comfort in your loss.

Fight me as your strongest foe.

To strengthen your will, against my will

Diligent to prove my wrong a wrong,

And face my faults with mature skills.

Make me your muse of strength and creed,

And see me as a part of you,

"For you dear, where shall i start?

Eons have passed, now we meet again.

Yet a fresh zephyr, still a young heart,

Your eternal dew, bestow unto me."



You are still as the master's hand,

Works wonders again, in such as you.

Oh Heavens! I'm indebted, to envision her true,

Gloriously gazing

of one who gives their all

and marvel at the feelings

Residual Haunting

There are these times of the year

that hunt and haunt my soul.

If I am undistracted – unaccompanied

then I become unexpectedly – unnerved.


Whispers on the breeze I cannot hear

catchlights in eyes I cannot see

memories of you I can no longer feel.


You are only 10 miles away

out of my life –

but no distance away

from this

residual haunting.

She’s the one we could rely on

when things were sorely scarce,

to always find a way to get by

when it went from bad to worse.


She’s the one true matriarch,

the gel at the center of all,

never too far away from us;

never more than a call.


Sacrificing all she had,

for us, her flesh and blood,

always standing second place

to the family’s common good.

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,



I’m your silver chalice

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

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.

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.

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?

Feelings left lost in a virtue of lust.

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.

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...
