Naked Soul

I've given my soul to the world in a blinding way. I've allowed for them to speak to me laying their hearts on the floor within these four walls. I have seen humanity at it's worst and again at it's best. The human soul is stronger than we give it credit; it can withstand a storm of cruel words and actions that meant to change even the softest individual into someone who looks out upon the world w...

My Love

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,
I can feel you coursing through my ve...

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,

I Hope The Train Breaks Down


I hope the train breaks down

Before the end of the line.

Then again; that’s a bit of a foolish thought

For sooner or later

We’ll get to the end,

in time.


I like the journey

But not the destination

So I think I’ll break my journey

And change trains at the station

Because I’m not quite ready,

For the end of the line


So I’ll carry on with my trip

The Monsoon Mender - June 2013

 Amit Arjun K


I paced towards the shop,

Rain pouring upon my coat, embraced

Myself and closed away the drops,

I shuddered with the cold.


It creaked as I opened the door,

The rusted iron scraped the floor

I disturbed the master of the house,

But ignored, with just a smile to close…


He sat there jaggedly around mounds 

Of shoes, slippers, and torn hide,

The Dream Withering

The Dream Withering.


Amit Arjun K.


"Rise up to eternal living

This one is left a dream withering."



In this theatre of wine and blood,

where your ballade now sung

A eulogy in putrid mud

A funeral; life's glorious futility.


And look what you leave

A turmoil, lust and grief.

Claimants of mystifying beliefs

Is of a life's worth that you sought?

What sad weary eyes we have

that see, in all the world,

such poverty and pointless pain.

Would not the sunlight bathe upon it

if we simply look again?


For the eye of the beholder

may choose the depth of tint

we see, through a rose coloured lens.

A hint of fanciful forms,

as they filter the rays they sense.


From beneath the haze

of the shimmering sun,

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...

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

How frail, in truth,

is the world that we tread?

Captains and kings

claiming calm sea’s ahead

as they’re riding high

upon their silver spoons

laughing, as below

the world withers too soon.


How thin the membrane

of life’s brittle bubbles,

building our barriers

and avoiding all troubles.

Do we wonder at the reasons;

do we hide or protect

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 the sun beats down

on another glorious day,

the blackbirds are singing

in their sweet little way.


The world is still

and my mind is at peace,

how I pray for this stillness

as it offers such release.


The sky so blue

and clear overhead,

the world still in slumber;

tucked up in their beds.


Dreaming of worlds

There’s a bench in the park where an old couple sit

holding hands and laughing as the children play and flit

about on the swings and slides with boundless joy,

inciting memories of when they were girl and boy.

The antics of the kids so full of life and carefree bliss,

their lives laid out before them on paths that time would kiss.


They’ve been sitting on that bench for ...

La vita e la morte

Life has drawn to a grinding, meandering pace

Where there once was happiness, pleasure and joy

Now only a void and darkness in its place

And the man I am is no longer the boy

As the smoke gracefully laps my pale face

Reaching gently my soul; a soothing decoy

From the pain and anger, with each fleeting breathe

As I sit and wait, contemplating death.

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,

The Wings of Life

The wings of life grow old

And I cannot fly like I used to do

When I was young and bold


Time is now like a distant summer’s glow

And I long for those summers

That once I used to know


Of course, there are still those sunny days

When I pull on my wings and fly,

When I rise up towards the sun and feel her rays


But one fine day I’ll rise up and fly so very hig...

Gently caressed by the breath of the breeze,
branches sway atop tall lofty trees.
Restless leaves, to gnarled fingers, cling
wondering what freshness the new day will bring.

Hopping about on long leafy arms,
fluttering feathers displaying delicate charms.
Beautiful songbirds sing out their sweet melodies
in the grand performance of natures sweet harmony.

Life is just a four letter word

Sometimes it can be so absurd

Like the broken window that just occurred

By the stone that’s thrown by the teenage nerd

Through bloodshot eyes with a vision blurred

Afraid to speak because his voice is slurred

And if he did it wouldn’t be heard

Through the itchy teeth and the tongue that’s furred

Through too much bread and lemon c...

Snail's Pace

I want to run, far far away

Where the grass is green, and the children play

Where the sun is beaming and the skies are blue

Where the days are longer and my dreams come true


If I could fast forward to that happier place

Perhaps ill feeling would disappear without a trace

Though If I cheated time, I might cheat myself

Perhaps challenges and realisations are encapsilations ...

I fail at sleeping


in a show of unconditional accusation, the reproachful slander of your hereafter,

amongst the placid hours,

I try to be the grand man, but I shake too much

unhinged by the overreach of my skeletal height

much to the delight of every unskilled whistler

A Broken Mind, a Sound Body

My head hurts

My eyes are spinning

My heart lies on the floor
You really really hurt me
I still don't comprehend
Why you walked out the door
Sure I might have been too forward
But you didn't say a thing
All I asked from the very beginning
Was to let me show my wings
But now the joys are hidden
And you left me in a room
Where I've been crying over ...

You say that I'm a dreamer

and so I may well be

but the dreams I have

aren't just for me,

they're for you and all to see.


The dream is of love,

of life free from harm,

a dream of peace and

shelter from the storm.


The dream is the lifeblood

flowing deep in our veins,

the dream will always be

for all to see

and all that remains.

The Sands

I made sandcastles here as a lad.

I’ve walked and ran with the dogs,

Faced the rain and the blustering winds,

Dozed in the summer sun,

And beachcombed.


When I die, burn my body like a Viking God

And bring my ashes to the sands.

When the tide turns and the wind blows hard

Then empty my remains.

Let the wind take them across the waves;

And watch while the sea foams...

A crowded room

is such a lonely place,

wear a fragile mask

upon a weary face.


Everybody’s here

but there’s nobody there

and there’s nothing to do

except sit and stare.

The distant sounds

of joy and laughter

drifting like echoes

in dusty rafters.


As you slowly subside,

sinking way down low

and you're silently wondering

how far you can go...

to everyone you love,

your family and friends

who you hold high above.


How do you say goodbye

to the one in your heart;

your soul mate, from who

none could tear you apart.


Your night and your day

and in every sweet way,

no words could express

what you're needing to say.


How do you say goodbye

We take so much for granted

from this world on which we play,

the breath inside our lungs

drawn in from a cold and windy day.


Draining the life from a world already

so drawn and stretched to it's limits,

desperately trying to imbibe

the scarcities still deep within it.

To live; to breathe; to follow time

as down the wind it sails

against all odds and obsta...

It's just a way of life

said the man with the gun,

you win it or you lose it

and when all is said and done.


But the odds and the favour

can be tipped from over here

by a warm winning smile

from a boy with no fear.


They say that respect

is a game hard won

but they can't see the smile

down the barrel of the gun.

It's five to three and my mind won't quiet
A million different thoughts congregated
In a rioted debate
I wait on the clock to stop but the
Tick tick tick is keeping me awake
Time stopping time from stopping.
It's strange, the unconscious brain
Like tapping into the universe
In sleep. 
Body in a slumped heap
I lie awake with these thoughts
Ironically keeping me up

Then spring will come in vanity
Rambling your perseverance

Riddled with ambiguity

A fear of ensuing failure

Why do we worry so much about tomorrow;

When we can do so much today.

Why do we cry for those who are leaving;

Forgetting the ones who stay.

Why do we long for that which we cannot have;

Without appreciating what we already possess.

We live life in a rush and often miss out so much,

We dwell on dreams and mistakes;

And live the present in a haze.

The Winter Light

How is it so beautiful, winter?
When I look around outside,

The joy in the white of the snow,
And the blessing of time, and open eyes;
How precious the light in this time of year.

Rejoicing in the warmth of their evening song,

Basking in the divine light of Nature,

Alcoholic With Sick On His Shoes.

Alcoholic with sick on his shoes,
Sat on a brown wooden bench
In the middle of town
With his old dog,
Flea ridden,
Shaking, gray,
Lacking good vision
Waiting for a meal
A dropped pasty or pie
A sandwich, perhaps rye.

To be such a man
It was always
You could become a lawyer,
You could become a teacher,
You could become a business man
Never, you could ...
