How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.
I love you wax poetic
about life, love, dreams.
I love you wish upon stars
and count your blessings.
I love you continue to love
with a thousand holes in your heart
and soar with broken wings.
I love how you speak to my soul
without saying a thing.

Rubber scrapes the soil
orchestrating a path
Watching tread copyright nature
with a flawed melody,
a percussion of leaves crunches beneath,
touching gales with a verse of words-
before the chorus fades.

When sun comes against all odds
And the colours of life just pop
Or when the rain falls
It falls and falls
And you wet your lips
With piping hot tea
With warm biscuit
Savour the crumbs
Cosy and safe
In the arms of a jumper
The padding of the sofa,
Like a huge hug
Or when your face aches,
Your stomach vibrates
Because you are fighting to breathe

An automatic bodily function,
we don't have to think, we just do.
From our first screaming breath, our in utero breathing, our final gasp.
But every breath is different.
This is my calming, in through the nose and out through the mouth, breath,
This is my deep breath and count to 10 that stops me losing my temper.
This is my quick breath when I'm teaching and talki...

Do we choose who we really are?
Do we decide what things we do?
Do we have the power to shape our lives?
And make our dreams come true?
Do we have a say what is in store?
And what will be our fate?
Are we in full control our minds?
Can we help it's happy state?
Or do the gods govern this world?
Is there any point in resistance?
But if you ask me who's really in charge,
I say we cont...

How can it be that you
are on the same
spiritual path as me...
God exists as
We keep coming back
as various entities
until we learn
Love is eternal
as it should be.
Writing is our way of
We cross oceans of time
to find our flame.
Kindred spirits we are,
lost and lonely...

Que Sera Sera
I loved you.
You loved me.
We lived life
in perfect harmony,
wild and free...
Until some pretty young thing
lured you away from me
lies replaced honesty,
trust evaporated completely.
Now we spend our days
of how good life used to be.
Que sera sera,
You love you.
I love me.

A question is asked,
"What is the meaning of life?",
Deep discussion occurs,
Tales of struggle and strife,
For me, however, it is much simpler:
To love; that is the meaning of life

T I M E .
We're all so hung up on T I M E .
Hurry up, don't be late, set an alarm, meet this deadline.
T I M E .
When do we take the T I M E to breathe?
Stillness holds so many answers, yet we won't slow down T I M E .
It passes quietly, for long times unnoticed.
Other times it elbows its way into your life, with a reminder that we don't have much...
T I M E .
Love the o...

Over and over,
I see your name
like a tattoo
on my brain.
not on deed or fame,
but simply a name.
A tag, reminding us
who we are:
who despite living
an alternate reality,
believes in passion,
love, happily ever after...

We track the oblique, sly fireflies
that keep popping fitfully by.
While life swarms invitingly by the side
we remain rabidly hustling
those brusque cracking stars
...shifty, deceptive, volatile
in onyx-bronze, raven nights
We: the tenderfoot novice
bulldozed on many a graceless trip
half-cocked, peripheral, stoned
and profoundly ill with pitiful
