So Right Yet So Wrong

When I know I'm doing wrong, but it just feels so right

When all I want to do all day is simply hold you tight

Your heart has been so broken, and this I know is true

Just want to stay close with you and you know I'll help you through 

 

There's light at the end of the tunnel, we both can see it there

I'll support you through this time, whether with me or elsewhere

We can get y...

Men Without Women

 

Where would men be

without women

to influence our characters

and point out our weaknesses

men would be uncivilized

closer to animals

who only want to sleep and eat

we would be still be in dark caves

wearing skins and scratching ourselves

women give us inspiration

women give us aspiration

women tame the wildness in our hearts

without women

men would be sa...

DYING FOR A FAG

If I suggested you jog down a motorway

A finger you would wag;

Yet you're ready to shorten life's own highway

Dying for a fag!

If I suggested you dip your hand

In a jar full of dangerous bugs

You'd get the needle - and I'd understand,

So why do it with dangerous drugs?

If I suggested daily you fill the sink

With the sort of booze that rots your guts

And drain it - wou...

Wrongdoer

If there is ever held a trial in a court of justice 

To punish the one who stabbed humanity in the eye,

don't go looking for any monster of extraordinary malice. 

Look my way, for the hideous wrongdoer is I.

 

Rip the clothes off my back and kick me down

Spit in my eye and then hand me the flog,

Because I alone deserve to wear the crown

of the cowardly, hypocritical, whimpe...

The Spark !

The Spark !

Old age comes upon you

like a creeping weed or vine

a subtle early warning

that you're running out of time

 

When we realized it had us

firmly in its grip

we decided to go fighting

so we really let it rip:

 

No more early nights

sipping tea and watching telly;

we bought the 'Kama Sutra'

and really gave it welly !

ANGER

Suppressed anger

At its best

 

Tightly squeezing air from chest

 

Meditation and salvation

 

Never feeling any confirmation

 

Always seeking an explanation

 

drowning

And hyperventilation

 

Anger is like a bubbling pot

Once you start

Its impossible to stop

 

 

Waiting for a fresh new season

 

Never needing a proper reason

A shadow drawing across my notebook

a guiding hand for my uncertain pen

Why only common people die

While the politicians and administrators don't die

They only hide behind the crimes with woeful smiles

 

Why only the poor have to suffer

While the rich stays in homes comfortable

The women are raped, men are killed and children orphaned

Dyslexia Rules KO

Though I've had 50 years practice,

Dyslexia still wins sometimes,

I'll miss out, "The's," and, "Me's and, "My's,"

While I focus on rhythm and rhyme.

 

But I know if I'm gonna crack this,

Have disciplined linguistic lines,

I'll just have to smile and toil for a while,

Re-read, edit, refine.

 

So if you are reading my stuff,

Probably best go with the flow,

The thought of you brings tears to my eyes

It fills me with anger the type of anger where

the hair on my arms stand at attention. 

My mind recalling all the times you put me in my place.

Reminding me I was nothing more than an ego boost for you.

would that be enough for you to love the way I deserve to be loved?

Once you let him go, you will feel so free. There will be so much less drama in your life. Once he is out of your life, you can focus on what truly matters… loving yourself. Loving yourself in a way that he never could love you.

The soul in the heart

Sunday,17th February 2019

 

The human heart is sensible

and struggle

not to reveal

true feels

 

it beats silently

and doesn't come out openly

to show the inner joy

but silently enjoy

 

let the heart remain

fully protected and hidden

as it finds visible heaven

on earth and stays driven

 

sentiments are the only treasures

Bordering Bolton
Lies land with lodges - 
Grassed and paved around,
With decking built on.

As well as these lakes
Of human-made kind,
Croal, Irwell, canal
Meet there like three snakes.

There’s ‘paths for horses,
A birdwatching hut,
An info. centre,
Plus walkers’ courses.

And, surrounding these,
The woods have grown thick,

how can we prescribe  with an 1.5 kg? 

to describe the similars of life

Introduction to Love

My love for you wells up from

Within

A feeling indescript

A warmth rising from the heart

A rush of oxytocin through the

Veins

Immediate and pressing

Without urgency or smothering

Felt from my legs to my

Head

And in every chakra the yoga-doers tell us of

From the crown above my head

To the root they speak of in awkward Puritanical tones

Tones we do not need, m...

There’s a part of the world

deep in a black sea.

The shadow of its form
covers continents in clouds
while a multicoloured storm
turns halos to shrouds.

And there’s cities made of Night,
there the long-forgotten sing
of a time when there was light
and day and Sun and spring.

But now the seasons mutely wilt

Through a Glass,  Pinkly,  in Robin Hood’s Bay

This was late June, maybe early July.

I was booked to sing. The cafe was packed.  

A three-legged stool available at

a sea-view verandah table. I made  

space beside a red-haired stranger.  She wore

a red dress.  Was kismet at work for me?  

Memories flooded me. The torpid stream

of weeks and months of mornings and evenings

spent vainly waiting for my heart to stir,

The Power of Poetry in Hospice Care

Poetry about Real People - The power of poetry in hospice care 

There is a tension between the advance of medical science, that pursues its ability to fix and treat, and an acceptance of the natural order of death and how that may be experienced. Atul Gawande, a surgeon and health researcher, has reignited this debate with his book 'Being Mortal' (and also presented the 2014 Reith Lectures on B...

Keep Calm And Carry On (The Poem, mk2)

 

High above your head a pastel dove hangs-
but why would you look away from your daily concerns?
Drive through weathers to reach your destination.
The bird is gliding there. Stand stock still 
for that momentous decision. The bird hovers there.
From the distance imposed on me
I follow the bird with a watchful eye
and therefore yourself through all your battles.
You live your sorrows an...

Catch the wind

Do you remember the wind?
She's hard to hear over the hum of air-conditioning.
When the world gets too much,
I head to the harbour to remember her voice.
I nestle in the body of my boat and think I'd love to cup my hands and catch her.
To take the wind captive, to wrestle her to the ground and expose her secrets.
People need to hear what she has to say.

"The Dulling"

The smouldering of my heart

listlessly spat out colourless mote.

The fire was no longer blazing,

and my vision was greyed and glazed in

weighted sheets of smoke.

 

There had been an onslaught

of waning passion;

a slow slaughter of song;

a crucifixion;

a paroxysm of portents

pulling me into their whorling.

 

A dark night in itself,

Untended depression leads up to aggression 

Improper digression leads up to the stressing 

The stressing leads up to me searching for weapons

VALENTINE

Betray her not with flowers,

while sharing her sweet scent.

Her petals take time to open

and spring may yet repent.

For she who belongs to nature

has passions of her own.

 

So shade your restless cloisters

wherein you foster your pretty games,

lest you perjure her moonglow dreams

and bring her down in flames.

Two Flowers

Two kinds of flowers are in life's garden sown -

the first are words and deeds that spread a name;

for laurel wreaths and eulogies they're grown

that blow such blossoms of the mind to fame.

 

The second are the flowers of the flesh -

their growers wish beyond the grave to be

borne down their childrens' childrens' bloodlines fresh;

both seek one trophy - immortality.
