A song of time

The sky shed tears, on that day

The day the wind took you away

The thunder of time, rumbled on

Playing a melancholic song

The lightning splitting my heart in two

A piece for me, 

                           a piece for you

One day we'll stitch it back together 

And then, my love, 

                                 we have forever

No Time Added On

We don’t talk much

beyond the weather,

but we can talk football 

forever and ever.


Drive into the box,

mark the man in space,

a shared language, we

can kick all over the place.


Your personal terms met. 

Time for a fresh dawn. 

Our commentary box quiet,

your armchair view gone.


Our home game ended, 

and there’s no time added on.

The Boot

Walking past The Boot tonight
a warm but sunless dusk
The door was open wide
drinkers shuffling and spilling out

I think of that favourite friend
who brought me here five years ago
We played some pool, supped our beer
as he talked of his dilemma

His partner wanted children
but regrettably, he did not
she gave him ultimatums
and he wasn’t sure what to do

When the world stopped for...

" Hello moon," can you help heal this broken heart

Can you take away the pain of the one I've lost?

The waves crashed loud, my heart beat fast, tears fell down my cheeks as I cried,

"Hello moon" can you help heal this broken heart

Can you take away the pain of the one I've lost?

My feet touched the ocean waves as the moon shined bright on my teary face

I just want to let her go, ...

The Memory Of Her

On Prebends bridge I caught the evolution of twilight into dawn.

Watched shifting hues of shadow and light brightening into colour.

And, for a moment, I thought I saw her 

looking up through the morning mist.

Her pallid, frail frame accentuated by the glistening blue ocean of her eyes. 

But, she faded. Like the mist itself

And all that I was left with, once again, 

was the sh...

Wounds of liberation

Imagine being totally untethered

After feeling chain linked 

I feel split

That part removed 

That half is trying to renew

But it hurts 

To grow scab over wound 

Missing you is mourning you 

Leaving you is still losing you

And I’m just as lost

As I made you 

If it could be 

I would make it be 

Should I be chain linked again 

I would make it good 

Should ...

life is beautiful

i would fall from heights
shaking Lucifer terrified
for Luna's starry skies to linger,
in a Jashar night, by your side.

floating on Chopin stroked ivory nocturnes
swimming in deep ruby pools of Pinot Noir
dancing on your flowering lips,
sweet with vanilla cigarette smoke.

life is beautiful.

phosphorus waves of purple patches
carry me from seas of stormy eyes
onto shores sanctuary ...

A thousand times regret.

Choices made,
that cannot be unmade.

Stupid things,
done again and again.

laid for a useless life.

Coming to an end for some time.

At least death will be done right.

Kind of hard to screw that up.

retail therapy

I stopped seeing my therapist

she moved on to start her own practice 

So I've started going out more 

eating less 

using useless utilities until I give out

my hands reaching for my purse

my fingers finding the chip

Fortune fails what love forgets

An entanglement of horror

Forgotten fools, defile the soul

Left foraging for sorrow

Permissive lives, destroyed by God

Perturbed, entrenched with puss

Presumed and cloaked in putrid lies

Distends a repulsive trust
