It’s a direct drive of fifty litres
From me to you.
Six hundred miles north
Until I’m resting my eyes on your face:
That soothing easy care
From the dial and touch
Of your features
The mixed fabric of your voice
Trickling through my cells.
I am freestanding
But will bloom
When you enter the room.
I’m in this intensive

I used to love you
it was like a fire
spreading across my body
Every smile you gave me
another piece of wood added to the pile
and oh did it burn
but the sad truth is
that love comes in pairs
and you had already found yours
it lost its colour
that beautiful glowing blood red
slowly faded and faded
like a rose without its soil

Paint me a picture of a beautiful flower
Then tell me all the sins it has done
Let me look away just once
Before this sour taste in my mouth
Becomes all there is you showed me
All that hasn’t gone south
Let me see the truth behind the lie
That last wish before you die
or before you get to live
Give me the chance to forgive
Under the mistletoe what we have done

A star in the sky with its tail wrapped around your eye
Spreads its light into you like a song that has just started playing
A song of hope and hopeless praying
and the only thing that could be heard
was the utter silence of never said words
Will you fly and reach the sky
or will the celestial come nearby
or will the two meet in the middle
as if the lover’s voices met ...

Made a painting
it isn’t too big or too small
too fancy or too empty
just the right peaceful amount of boring
grabbed an old dusty brush
and buried it in pink
like the cheeks of a smile covered in blush
covered it all
all the sadness all the hate
anything too dark to make me feel small
covered it all so I could forget
leave it all behind
as if it was someone el...

Love is love they say as their loveless mouths spit each syllable like a foulness upon their tastebuds. All the while spouting poisonous scriptures on why your kind of love is not adhered to, not seen, not recognised.
And if it is not recognised, but you still dare to live outside their boundaries, you are cast away.
Family is everything, they speak as though that ought to be enoug...

You were the wind sweetheart,
In the cold you stung but I didn’t care.
When it was warm you felt like a warm hug,
Cuddling me like a teddy bear.
You were everywhere,
And are still here now.
In my imagination,
I see glimpses of anything you allow.
Each leaf blowing as the air surrounds me,
Wrapping me in an autumn cloak
Handmade by you and your songs.

In the darkest times, there is always a light,
Someone who will hold you, or just sit with you,
when you are feeling doubt.
Maybe it's a person? Or maybe it's a dog? who looks at you with non-judging unconditional love,
and makes you know everything will be alright!
That makes you put on your armour and continue to fight,
Because warriors might lose battles and even have scars,...

sitting on a train with my head bowed in a quiet mourning for the couple sitting two seats in front.
or really for me.
i mourn for me, me and my love and its cramps.
im in love, im in love and once more im in love.
not with anyone but with everyone, or anyone who'd see it through.
then each time i remember that the only thing i want to be is noticed,
someone can notice that, eve...
