Stay with me, I beg you
You’re all that I have left
My safest place
Greatly, I fear
That the more I think of you
The more you will fade from me
Like others that I could not keep
You are all the spirit I have within me
My intangible dream
I would know nothing of hope
If the light you give
Should be smothered into smoke
I would not fight the dark
I would hav...

Pick and choose it
It's so beautiful-
Isn't it beautiful?
I spin it and
Flip it upside down
This way is better
I like this much better
Hold it together and
I can make it
So much better
I watch it and
Over and over again

Piece of a broken bowl
Which reminds me of
Grits in the morning
That I ate standing up
With messy morning curls
We were kids then
You’d never believe it now
And I’d never be brave enough to tell you
But I loved you then
I wanted to be just like you
Which reminds me of
Trying too hard to like uncooked las...

I think of you, chastise myself,
And press your name away
Ignoring, stubbornly, the fact,
You’re present every day
I don’t ask why I cannot help
But seek your commentary
On every task, or smile of mine-
A wish I cannot bury
I say, embarrassed at myself,
That this affair ends now.
This fantasy, this made-up game,
I cannot keep allowing

I drink the elixir of your words
to calm my nerves,
to hear the crunch of leaves
on my way to brighter days,
to see another creative soul
soar above the chaos of a broken life,
to witness corrosion
turn to gold,
to prolong the beauty of this moment,

The suffering, the pain, it’s over now
All that is left is a pounding heart trying to heal and move on
A heart that fought so hard to stay alive
A heart that held on until the last minute the last goodbye
Thumping, beating, pulsing
The pain, the suffering made the heart strong
So strong that it grew a thick wall
A wall that cannot be broken
A wall that no longe...

I keep finding myself thinking back to the day we met
It was April 23rd I believe
I thought my life was full
I thought my life had meaning
It wasn’t till I met you that I realized it was incomplete
Now all I wanna do is show you i care and love you
Hopefully you feel the same way
I mean we’ve been together for almost 2 years now
This ain’t much of a poem

As the years go on, and the beauty fades
They are arm in arm, like nothing has changed
And as he hovers close, I can hear what she says
She says - just as sweetly as the very first day...
"Paint me with your love
make me shiny and new
give me all your colours
it's what I dream of
I'll be painted, sated
in layers of love."
And as he hears her words, I can see he smiles

It is late and all is silent
The summer night has closed in...
A solitary espresso to ruminate
On the world... I love you.
Three simple words that encompass
the universe and all its beautiful mysteries.
I love you,
Your soul is with mine, as you sleep,
Like strange incense, they wisp and play.
Our souls know more than
they will reveal...
I love ...

Just the right amount of squeeze
at my hip
of a lemon
on the pasta we craft for each other
of the sponge he knows I don’t like to touch when wet.
A tongue, a croissant, a bottom smack,
exactly when we wanted one
A well-timed tease, balletically treading that tightrope line
from this now, to the next, to the next to the next please
Moments studded above our ...

my partner says
I can’t write anymore poetry.
until I take out the bins
complete that assignment
(for which I’m paying thousands for the privilege)
and preferably have a shower
not out loud
but I hear it in his sighs
and the way he closes the cupboard doors

Eyes and smokes
our shared veins.
Frayed but firm,
in warm blood.

Your cell walls fresh-free
of their love.
must be dumbly plucked from each pink pore,
thrown to landfill,
labelled 'Hazardous biowaste, may cause hideous burns'.
Third, make re-chaste your newly bleach-scoured bone and blotted clean flesh
with a sore blessing of Domestos and clov...

My mad friend,
I should call

Giggles and winks at romantic excess
The mountains seem like overkill yes
I’d said with a grin that shone my delight
And fastened my thighs steel clam-snap tight,
The still of his stare, blue-blazing and prised
By billows of sun emulsified
In bright, surf-swept skies and slick seas of cloud,
Long salted kisses, wet noses bowed,

We are all of us children
grown up and making our own
way in the world
for all of that.
We are all of us dreamers
woken up to our own
for all of that.
We are all of us lovers
in love with making our own
for all of that.
We are all of us seekers
stretching up to find our own
place in this world

Résumé / Michael Kwack
dull without passion.
tough without fortune.
harsh without comfort.
dry without dream.
empty without story.
absurd without wit.

Don't ever let anyone convince you
to not share your soul songs.
The weaponized words
they hurl towards you,
are formed from
their own insecurities.
You get one shot,
in this time and space,
crabs in a bucket,
and a host of other cliches,
determined to control
your creative mind.
Give in to dark energy,
and you become it.
Rise above it.

Come close if you must,
to my heart of rust.
Taste my sorrows
of ash and honey,
beneath the illusion
of love and money.
After the show,
your life’s a mess,
you’ll fall in line
with the rest.
. . .
It’s not too late,
to change your fate.
Turn away from a life
What you seek
is found within,...

Back seat kisses,
long walks in the woods,
sunbathing on the beach,
talking for hours,
slow dancing to George Straight songs,
making love until dawn,
falling asleep in each other’s arms...
behind the sheer curtain of my mind,
found in a bottle
