The Temptation of St Anthony

From Emperor to Vampire, journeying through to final place of amoral monk.

Dwelling in ruined fort, a habitual sin of retired idleness. Momentary contemplations

to follow the birds south, he spends his days tending a garden of lilies in the desert.

 

Holding his demon captive for too long without his hands, she now writhes naked

and tied to column of penitent temple. Tresses burnt...

A Gift of Love

Loneliness breeds sadness.

Like an illness it spreads,

takes hold,

takes ones breath away,

and,

grips ones heart,

tight

in a strangling knot

of grief.

An apparition of love

appears to soothe and comfort,

but as it evaporates and is gone,

a wave of emptiness takes it's place.

A look, a gesture, seems to offer love,

but it is only a memory,

fading fast.

Chapter 14:Her

entry picture

How’ve you been? Can I stay here for a bit?

I thought we could sit here and talk for hours

About how we used to be so in love

And all of the things we were going to do.

 

I can feel you in my heart

It’s beating out of time

This love used to be our home

But it’s time for us to move on

 

It's been hard for me sleep

And my senses are not functioning right

But I'm g...

Blind LOVE

You must know
Life is not a show
You go up, you go down
But stop acting like a clown


You may pretend you don't care
Anyway you know what we share
Every time we both meet
We're falling in love a little bit


I do love you but never said
I'll still be like a shade
Will be watching all your moves
One day you'll see it proves


That the one from the past
Was always first to give help fa...

Too Proud to be happy!

Thanks, I realized who are you
But before my heart grew


Full of love and deep desire
They could feel between us a fire


I was with you dear always
And really, I had no holidays


Hospital could be my second home
Didn't stop me even a storm


After all I did for you 
I get words but only few


That was fair enough
To see the real stuff


The real truth knocked me off my feet
You are...

So Easily Pleased

From a glass of Cote du Rhone,

Stemmed from your place of birth,

Or a framboise tart –

Patisserie delights.

The taste of salads

And hummus garlic that stains your breath

That I so dread to kiss -

I know you have to put up with my nicotine lips,

But it’s me that does all the moaning.

So easily pleased by life’s gentle moments,

When for me it isn’t enough to savour,

For Simon

Love: burgeoning, a smouldering ember.

Passion: a delight long forgotten, once more embraced.

Lover of mine, falling in love with you.

Happiness: a seed is planted, sprouts, grows shoots, strengthens, blossoms and flowers,

scattering pollen from dizzy heights of pure joy.

You lift my heart and make it sing.

Falling, falling, catch my heart, hold it close.

Enfold me, love me, d...

love

An old love that deepens

An old love that changes and deepens.

An old love that fits like a glove;

rather saggy and stretched, creased and worn but comfortable and strong:

always there, always caring, always true.

Laughter follows you around and fills the void in me.

Your love pours out and over flows into the cracks in my soul.

Your friendship is a safety net strung below me as I tip toe over life's roo...

Agra's Jewel

Our hotel - a hermetically sealed bubble of glass,

concrete and polished floors,

is chilly and anonymous.

But as dawn blossoms quietly

we approach the Jewel of Agra.

A grieving husband remembers

with a monument to love:

the Taj Mahal.

It radiates a powerful aura of peace,

delicate and glowing

in the silver light.

Birds flit across the roof

and I stand, 

gazin...

Decemeber Morning

entry picture

December morning awakens for another day
As the snows begin to fall down from the heavens
And you’re standing there in the cold
Catching snowflakes on your tongue.

I don’t mind the deep white snow
Because it covers up my insecurities
Hides my human frailties
And freezes away my fears.

Yet, I can’t help but feel a certain warmth when I’m around you.
A type of warmth that helps let’s go of ...

A Quiet Night At The Telescope

It's a quiet night

a quiet night at the telescope

an eye on things

all that's unfolded, all that is done

 

The moment shivers

as December's knifing breath sinks deep

and weather's long sigh

the only sound in all this silence

 

The whole sky 

looks straight into my eye

The whole of space 

has it's magnifying glass to my eye

searching for something

 

I...

Unrequited

The head of a rose

dry and broken

like a soft word spoken

which was not heard.

 

The head of a rose

petals close together

intense love held forever

which was not seen.

 

The head of a rose

leaves are tattered

a life lies scattered

which was not known.

Love

I want to be alone,
but only within my family.
I want to to teach you
but only with him too.
I want to help myself
but only if you help me.
I want to be confident
but only if you are there.
I want to be creative
but only if you allow me.
I want to be a parent
but only if I’m parented.
I want to be an adult
but only if I can be a child.
I want to feel emotions
but only if you hold me...
