We met through a personal ad
Two desperadoes with sad eyes
Putting our pride in our pockets
Pained from others goodbyes
Desperation is a cruel master
Standards plummet to the floor
You tolerate the unacceptable
What you wanted is no more
Half-hearted, we fixed a date
Half a loaf is better than none
I wasn't keen on her manners
Normally she'd want me gone...

A honk and a wave,
a smile greets you
not able to place the face
but you comply
then she questions your well-being
Scrolling through the latest developments
you pick an appropriate response,
‘I’m hanging in there. Happy Thanksgiving.’
She returns with the same,
then disappears into the sea of lights
She is too kind
this is not the ...

He looks to me
but he doesn't see me
He talks to me
but he doesn't hear me
He's in front of me
but we're a million miles apart
Our hearts are beating to a different tune
Everyone thinks it'll be fine soon
Just open up and tell him
It'll be okay,
This too shall pass
but it won't,
it will last and last...

Bandages ripped off
not sure where this goes
You know too much
can’t hide it anymore
you want more than to touch
the deepest parts of me
I’m falling deeper into you
where do we go
what do we do
when I just want to be close to you
Monday 6th January 2020 2:51 pm
bodies tangling, intertwining
we get lost in the moment,
in the rush
drifting off to our own space
No time like the present
we’re looking for answers in the pouring rain
If you could get by
for one night
without looking for the answers
If you could
for one night
love me just the same
Everybody needs something

If I meet a stranger in the way and he asked me for my name,
Should I tell him with a sad sad smile that we are all the same?
When a ravenous roaring lion comes hurtling down the street,
Should I stand my ground a trembling and sweep him off his furry feet?
If our pearls of wisdom scatter, strewn askew on stony ground,
Should we weep and wail, O woe is me!, or act like are fool...

Saw your skin,
Full of lies,
Touched your hands,
Saw Wrinkled lines,
Few Broken ties,
Two strangers ,
Such A cold night,
A girl I met,
Beauty as if,
Felt like I know her,
From some other life,
I think she was Running away ,
Just Like me,

We were strangers by the pool
there was summer on your skin
I lay low, opened my whole body
in the hope that you would find me
Then taking it the distance
from the shore raised to the sky
there were many sailors scheming
on the bending of your knee
There’s a bridge in your dreams
as it recedes behind a fog
you wonder what it means...
Even naked your body was a silk gown
as you sc...

I will not fight, I will not stand
For border, nor for any land
I need not know, am not concerned
Your place of birth or language learned
Too many wars are fought, too many die
Over province, pride, triumphal lie
I will not guard, I will not bar
The stranger landed from afar
They need a home, and wish to settle
Want to work, to show their metal
We can only profit...

you came to my work.
You asked me if I wanted to date you.
Of-course my answer was yes.
You smiled and then asked me
if I'd like to go to the movies.
So, after we work went
and it was our very first date.
Two days, six days,
then eighteen days went by.
Within those eighteen days
we've texted, hanged out,
and with everyday I've fallen
for you more and more.
A few more days wen...
