What she said

You will miss me

when you are alone, she said,

when the tide of life’s cold wind

freezes about your head

when the sunset burns red

and only you are there to see

when the laughing of the stream

mocks you in your stead

when your arms wrap around nothing

as they search your empty bed

when you melt at seeing a smile

but wake from dreaming it instead

How To Mend A Broken Heart

Though you just show off my dear

But still my darling I LOVE YOU!


So many hearts were broken by yo...

A Certain Lady


There's a certain wistful aspect to her gentle grace

A fair haired lovely with elegance embedded in her face

Clear eyed and full lipped with cheekbones well defined

And just to top that outer view is the beauty of her mind

Such a combination must be more than many men can bear

So much for them to live up to - may they hope they can ensnare

A lady filled wit...

Hearts and flowers and shit

(Valentines poem 2010)

A saying someone told to me,

these days when even love is tough,

“if you love somebody, set them free...” –

give them a false sense of security

then when they come back to you,

tie them up and ,


do stuff.

You know, like...

The Rose

The flowers unfold

as I pick the rose

walking in the park

way after dark

with my boyfriend.


I lift the rose

as i climb the fence

wondering what the passer-by thinks

of me and my boyfriend.


he lends me a hand

as he stands on the pavement

smiling with his eyes

this handsome man,

my boyfriend.


the passer-by stops

as i be...
