Love, Me

Beautiful dreamer

take solace with me

and a soft melody.

I will soothe you,

woo you,

set your spirit free.

You are never alone 

when you love me.

The Promise

It has been so many years

since that moment of truth

when finally you were truly alone

 

It has been so many years

since you flew with the flames

as the organ played

something

and I looked out at the distant horizon

seeing you there drifting away

into finality

 

It has been so many years

since I made you a promise

I could not keep

 

You said

Do no...

Five minutes more

Please.

Just five minutes more.

Just five more minutes alone, in the quiet

Before I walk through that door

Return to the noise

And heed the voices.

 

Just five more minutes

Before I resume my duties

The chores that are never done

The battles that will never be won.

 

Just five minutes more to call my own

Before I become once more the exclusive property of cha...

Threshold

When I wonder what's wrong
When I think whats going on
A Voice said 'this is what you did
Not much love exists to feed.
Tides will not change the future
Might just believe it, forever
Believed that the eyes I see
Truth in them will set me free.
Taking a huge dose of the drug
Never know what's beneath the rug
Chemical changes inside me
They will not let me be.
Let me be the free bird fl...

And Now I'm Old

This poem carries faint echoes of winter in a Mediterranean climate, in this case the South West of Western Australia; limpid skies, stormclouds threatening, people in overcoats walking hastily. Rather like an English summer, I would have thought!

 

And Now I'm Old

And now I'm old as softening apples

left forgotten on a sideboard

after a windy day,

the murmur of the evening room

THE UNKNOWN

Never have I  not ponder over you, but seeing you everyday is like a fresh air.Never have I seen the the innermost part of that deep sea which you always carry but I have hope.

Never have I not wished for us but fate is like a game between two players seking a goal. Everyday I feel these monsters with me but my thoughts keep on searching for a new light.

Never have you wished for me again, n...

Solitude

Solitude is mysterious

Solitude is strange

It can feel bliss'd, but it can render

Every time, it can always range.

*

It's when time smites me wrong

Or I'm feeling depressed

I'd join a lonely room for company

And tell it how I was stressed.

*

But what if you can't stand it,

What if you're pining for just anyone?

Keep seeking; in a world founded on those who care,

Solitude's serenity

Solitude's serenity.

Hard won.

Solace in loneliness achieved only post-turmoil.

Mind-spin thought-paths create anxiety, confusion.

Smash-render peace elusive illusion.

Prevent slow succour-drift.

 

Heart-ache loneliness from gut-yearn apprehension resists calm.

Peace in tranquility hideous-mind forbidden.

Persistent thought-loops cover unpalatable memories, memes, paradi...

The Rook,

alone

bewildered stood,

 

he, 

fallen from his

flock now flown,

 

one wing seemed

bent,

for flight no good,

the other useless

now alone.

 

The Gent, 

unsure

in aimless wander,

 

she,

fallen from their 

path well planned,

 

his stick seemed

loose,

where once was stronger,

held by a firmer

surer hand.

Imaginary dog walking

Idly walking my imaginary dog

on the wiley windy moor,

listening out for Cathy calling,

a game I’d played before.

 

Indulging imagination,

my head engulfed in thought,

I didn't see the kneeling wench.

So shocked,

my fist she caught. 

 

Into the heath she backward fell

out cold as cold could be,

my dog attracted by a smell

mistook her for a tree.

 

An...

Work Day's End

WORK DAY ENDS

The work day leaves around me.

I do not share the rush to cars or beers or childcare pickup.

I do not need to slice the everyday’s hot cord

that doesn’t fuel my energy, my need

to prove I can - mostly to myself.

I let the walker-talkers move

somewhat shy of stampede down halls

too long for anything but gale-strong drafts,

up hills too steep for anything but...

Clear Blue Air

 

 

Withdraw

Recharge

No need to respond

No talking

No noise

Just silence

Purity found in clear blue air

Sunshine on freckles and wind in my hair

Blocking out

Blanketing

Breathing in deep

Clinging to emptiness

Found on the brink

To talk is to torture

You butcher my peace

Chatter incessantly

Shattering harmony

Feckless i...

  There is a beauty in solitude only the solitary know. There is a sadness in being lonely, only the lonely can know. In solitude and loneliness, in beauty and sadness, the most beautiful poetry of feeling can be known. Indefinable, inexpressible, Oceanic bliss-like satori. A brief enlightenment when the light breaks through the darkness, a glint, a hint of perfect, untouched beauty perfect a...
