Bellow

entry picture

I could fill a barren sea 
full of tears I've shed
for a moment with you.

I learned to focus only 
on the good it led to.
 
What purpose does it serve
to open old wounds

except to serve the 
greater good. 

So, I bellow not

unless it can be
a beacon 

for mermaids
coming ashore.

A reflection:

As I continue to reflect on our relationship, both the good along with all the troubles,  I find myself to be more and more at peace with my actions and role our relationship.  What I continue to take away is that you cannot change someone.  It is impossible.  However, what is, is the possibility to always change yourself, and hopefully change how others see themselves, others, and see a different...

Discernment

A valuable gift,

An emotional curse,

Seeing past the illusion,

Stuck with the truth

 

Ugly at times,

But you know it’s for the better,

In a world of pretenders,

There’s only a few authentic left 

 

A loving heart,

Unable to be free,

God forbid you love a fraud,

Imagine you’re 6 feet deep 

 

The mind and the heart are at odds,

HOW can they reconcile?

My mind is something like an analytical computer,

Processing, Calculating, Probability.

Always observant,

Sometimes giving me unrest.

 

Is it really as simple as it seems?

Or is my mind prone to hard truths?

This is my newest edition to self-discovery,

I think my mind needs to have surgery.

 

Dissecting the unforgiving folds,

Maybe even remove the hard drive,

Dacha

 

In a green dacha in a black wood

sat a grey man

under red skies 

 

his eyes glazed and his hands shook

with his glass filled

by his old lies

 

though his friends died and the Kingdom fell

still he stayed there

and would not tell

 

what had moved him to belong there

to betray them

for this new hell

BetrayalHistoryReflection

Lately

Lately I’ve been wondering, 

Wondering in the lowlands,

Lately I’ve been following,

Any star that shines,

Painfully I’ve swallowed,

Poisoned arrows that led me here,

They whispered dreams and virtue, 

Didn’t know it would crumble to tears.

 

I can’t help it,

Every man has felt it,

I’m alone,

Though you try to help me.

 

Where every map leads backward,

Hit and Miss

Contradiction is inevitable.
Perspective relative.
Monotony is life.
Amnesia saves
drugs,
a selfish freedom from the past.

White open spaces,
existence and impermanence.
Meaninglessness.
The great abandonment,
a tragedy,
the greatest agony,
random nostalgia.

Simplicity,
blue open skies, open arms,
open mind over mind
over matter mad as a hatter
no matter the weather,
I don’t ...

Phoenix

 

You set my sails ablaze,

How can I not feel hate?

My wings are singed, I cringe,

My throat is dry, I cry,

 

Why did you cause such pain?

Did you not my trust my ways?

My reflection is maimed,

The hope you did deflate,

The energy fades,

The Light of Heaven diverts away,

I guess I’ll have to wait,

 

The urgent message on delayed flight,

If I Could Rewind Time

If time could go backwards I would change a whole lot

the misery experienced and the Untied knots

things would be different but better you'll agree

because I would know what would hurt and benefit me

times are hard and will only get harder

life is short and will only get shorter

so I must correct my mistakes and just stop accepting this sorrow

Because I know I have fewer toda...

Tribulation

If living for subsisting

or existing to survive

 

Purpose stays elusive

any sense can’t derive

 

Going about in vortex

moving at  rapid pace

 

No time for indulgence

in own personal space

 

Stuck in same tedium

since been on to avoid

 

On face near amiable

 but zest seems devoid

 

In inferred conspiracy

end's nowhere in sight

A Lifetime Of Nights In A Welsh Town

entry picture

Asleep beneath a sodium tongue,
Damp synthetic fire-licked stone,
Fake stone,
Hand made stone,
Carpeting ugly and commodious city streets,

Voices of young men,
Smoke filled lungs and wide wild eyes,
Sanguine chatter-boxes,
Impatiently idea making,

Dreaming, cold-air-breathing, nights on end without closed eyes,
Hearts open,
Some happy numbness in the fingers and toes,
All may rest ha...

The Rational Animal

entry picture

I did not ask,
I did not ask to emerge from the firmament,
I did not ask to grow, and learn, and make mistakes and start over,
I did not ask to feed a whole soul by way of wide-eyed wonder,

I did not ask,
To consider my self,
To bear the burden of loving a stranger,
To practice the discipline of forgiving,

I did not ask,
To find my way in the dark and reach out to touch the only force in ...

HOLLOW HALLS

entry picture

She drags tired heels

across a tainted floor,

poise slightly bowed

and her back is sore.

She holds on her face

a cold marble stare,

a hard life engraved

upon cheeks once so fair.

 

Her faulting movements,

once graceful; divine,

her aching limbs now

with guile, defy

her final performance

on this dark empty stage,

memories fleeting

of a much better age...

Sex and Cigarettes

The smell of sex and stale cigarettes, Two bodies connected in life and death, Chapped lips meet between the sheets, Lust in our bones, the Reaper in the air. How rare an oxymoron, neither with clothes on, We follow recreation with deadly inhalation, Skin touching skin, lips wrapped around uncertainty, Two separate entities leaned inwards somehow gently, Feeling so alive, ...

Beset current despondency

goads me again to express

 

Reason for disenchantment

and issues crucial  address

 

It’s not just plain strangers

but ones considered as own

 

Despite all indulged civility

apathy in return got shown

 

Kept seeking sane rationale

 searched the very core inside

 

Answers did never justify

Complexity

 

Feeling blue and lonely,

for positivity I’ve doubts

 

Long has been torment

 with endless sort bouts

 

Undoing other’s tangles

accidently I got caught

 

Intricately opposing to,

how I would’ve thought  

 

Unknown with intent wily

I still can face and fend

 

Familiar I can’t decipher

with their density contend

Hindsight

It indeed turned a folly

telling wrong  from right

 

Each came out a winner

with me conceding fight

 

I’ve reached a juncture

doesn’t matter anymore

 

On face may seem loser

but wiser since before

 

Likely never transpired

surprising didn’t emerge

 

Accepted all dished out

No rue is being nursed

none there to complain

 

Excused are all ignorant

Bespoke Monotony

 

Jaded lasting tedium

beset with gloomy cape

 

More I try ridding off

seems stuck at nape

 

Tattered and misshapen

the vilely kind of garb

 

Root cause for despair

inviting many a barb

 

Donned inadvertently

as cover up sort drape

 

From all harsh realities

 when I sought escape

 

Ever since it stayed on

not even once removed

Way Back Home

There’s always a way back home.

Maybe no one told you

But cement and brick last a long time,

Even when neglected.

You can disappear for a year or ten

Then come back again, to the street,

And watch history repeat

As memories breathe through old concrete.

And maybe it’ll seem strange to meet,

After all it was there I learnt life can be like

Spoilt conjoined...

When a Heart Truly Breaks

I am scared.

Eye sweating, lip stinging scared.

An irregular pulsar in the overstuffed confusion of my chest offers a less than precise signal, two-two time minus one, again and then again. All inside chooses to rise in unison and grip my desiccated throat. My fingers hover, but I dare not move. The continuation of this vessel in the balance and yet I still wrestle with pride and a fear...

New X (30 years after the tragic fire)

entry picture

 

On the 18th of January 1981, 13 young people died in a fire in New Cross, South East London (a fourteenth committed suicide after losing so many friends). Just shy of thirty years on, these are the contemporary reflections of a man who was a seven year old boy at the time. Widely thought to have been a racially motivated attack, more recent advances in forensic technology have suggested o...
