After the Pandemic

After the pandemic, 
I hope we remove our masks, 
find more reasons to smile, 
forgive faster, 
have more patience, 
keep the faith, 
help each other however we can. 

Gather more, 
hug more, 
kiss more, 
remember what we're here for, 
live, laugh, love.

I hope you find strength 
to move your mountains, 
courage to carry on, 
seize every opportunity 
to live the After now.

A SONG OF FRIGIDITY AND DESIRE

Feeling sweet, flying high, you between caramel thighs

Latent passion, burns bright, red hot in the middle of the night

Never grappled with such emotions,  had desire with such devotion 

Thankfully,  rationality quells the ache in the waking hour, logic turns sweet sour

Forbidden thoughts tantalize, it's torment to fantasize 

Futile to take action, never to fruition comes satisfacti...

Love Looks Good on You

You thought love 
abandoned you,

knocked you down,
for the last time.

No music, no melody, no rhyme, 
lights out on your doe eyes. 

Lips that forgot 
how to smile.

Heart on lockdown,
soul exiled. 

Now here you are,
back on the wagon.

Your world spins again,
everything starts anew.

Glowing, singing happy tunes, 
love looks good on you.

The Thief of Breath and Hugs (part 1)

She'd been told with much conviction

How the window was a shield.

For outside there lurked a wicked thief

And her breath this thief would steal

 

But, her family stood beyond the pane 

A daughter, granddaughter & son 

Who'd send out smiles like rays of light

And through the glass they'd come

 

She blows them kisses, and shakes her fist

In case this thief's about

Modus Operandi

Deny, deny, deny,

modus operandi, 

when caught in a lie.

Can pass a polygraph 

while looking you in the eye. 

Knowing what’s done in dark

eventually comes to light, 

until such time,

deny, deny, deny!

Maybe Next Time

Maybe next time,

I will get it right, 

put up more of a fight, 

won’t settle,

take control of my life. 

Maybe next time, 

I will find fortune and fame,

learn how to play the game.

Maybe next time,

I will see it through, 

know the right thing to do.

Maybe next time,

you will love me,

as much as I love you.

Answers elude

My identity un-formed and crude

 

Mother pretends

The show never ends

Until the curtain is drawn

Stand firm in my convictions

My Super man

Panic setting in

For reasons unknown everything is unsettling

I wished I could kick my heels and disappear

But, instead, he appears

Through the haze his face is clear

I fight the urge to will him near

Oh God, did he sense my fear

Or my emotions churning and my tears near

How does he do it, what exactly does he hear

Me daring him to care

Transference and its counter

Am I making an impression...

Do I leave you bewildered with every expression...

Do you look forward like I do to our weekly sessions...

Or are my scribbled musings akin to aggression... 

An unbecoming, pathetic vie for attention...

I find you delightful and have a genuine fascination...

I am curiously eager, feelings bordering on intoxication.

A Client's Woe

When shadows go into hiding

And dreams run wild

I imagine you all stripped down and bare

All facades shed

Thoughts of me invade your head...

 

Or so I wish, a girl can dream

I miss you, I want you

If only I could scream 

These words out loud 

Remove the shroud

Say them loud

Say them proud...

 

But I mustn't disturb the peace

What is unknown must remain ...

The Flame Within

She has a beauty that shines from within 

A light that never grows dim

 

Her candle goes not out by night

And the radiance inside her, ever bright

 

When the wind blows,

Her flame - it holds

 

She thrives, she sparks

She glows, she grows.

Broken

We were young 19 and 22
 just me and you 
we went into this blindly 
everything we've gone through wasn't supposed to be taken lightly
 three months in
 and we found out we're having a kid
 we bickered and we fought
 that's how relationships were at least so I thought 
4 months I was afraid
 but for eight years you've stayed
 but not without a glitch

Beautiful Dreams

I wish for a soulful voice,

a proud father,

reconciled love. 

In absence of these things, 

I do not despair, 

because I have the music,

that makes my unfulfilled wishes,

beautiful dreams.

The Sex

She walked into this world,
Smiled, and parted her thighs,
Loving passion of death,
Burning the flesh to cinders,

Come to me,

Desire has weakened my spirit,
Her words have broken me,
Echos carry deep, dripping with the sex,

Be with me,

Pain and love are one,
The blood-soaked arousal of an evil servant,
The consumate act, the ultimate submission,

Fuck me,

And in the end it ...

Broken 

   by the love

Broken

    by circumstances

    beyond my control 

Broken

   except within,

It's Not In The Falling

I fell

For the feelings, the flowers, the fantasies. 

 

I fell

For you, for us, for all that we were.

 

Innocently thinking that was all love could be.

I confused the falling for the force.

 

But,

Falling was all about me.

And,

Loving is all about you.

 

Baby, I'm no longer falling

But to you I promise, 

I'll always be loving.

Let Me In

Where are you? 

Are you wandering 

the moors 

of your mind 

all alone? 

I am at the Grange 

feeling a little deranged 

from the madness

close to home. 

Let me in,

to the hearth 

of your heart,

so we can slow dance,

into the twilight.

Profound sadness

I don’t understand why 

my muse avoids me like the flu, 

when a simple poem or song will do. 

Wise words to help me understand

why true love passed me by

in this lifetime.

Why wrong choices,

that felt right at the time,

The man and the sea - Part 1: The Stranding

After the ship broke

the man found himself in the middle of the sea

drifting into the unknown in the dark

clinging to a piece of tree

 

the man is physically strong, he needs to be

cause his mindset is weak

and now that no one can see

he lets out a tiny weep

 

by daylight, the man spots land on the horizon

he heads off and crawls

but she, the sea, won’t let him ...

Broken Man (Regrets)

Here I stand, a broken man
Trying to cope the best I can
Guys are not supposed to cry
We’re macho with our heads held high
But alone I feel a shivering wreck
With mixed up thoughts and mass regrets
Regrets that I just can’t be me
Regrets of the false man you see
Each tiny thought I try to dissect
But each tiny thought then becomes a threat
A threat that I might be exposed
Exposed to tho...

Building years of love
Growing strong together
Embracing all we’ve got

Weaker when we’re apart

weaving a cocoon of peace.

Not-So-Happy Father’s Day

Jealousy pokes at me 

like a schoolyard bully,

as I scroll social media greetings 

professing undying love, 

to fathers here and above. 

 

I can’t help but feel cheated 

to not have a father’s love.

 

I cringe at the dissonance

between my children

and their father. 

 

How can fate be so cruel,

to curse multiple generations 

with dysfunctional fathers.

Primal Howl

Hurdling moral barriers, 

past caution flags of life,

towards red lights,

to feel alive,

Excitement rising

adrenaline coursing

through collapsed veins, 

primal howl, 

lost in the now,

while consequences growl,

"I can't breathe."

How those words
now haunt me. 

Suffocating reminder 
of the curse 
on humanity. 

I want no part
of this evil plan,
man against man.

Let me stowaway
with paper and pen 

until we get past 
armageddon, 

to a safe place, 

where kindness,
compassion, love 
rules the land, 

where we can

Half-Life

We were reckless with love.

Swans dancing on a lake of fire;
unfinished art searching for the
Louvre.

Quiet & loud.

Hungry & fed.

Bones full of broken stars

sapiosexual
astronomers
with the temerity
to traverse galaxies
hidden between the
braille on our skin,

foolish enough to believe
desire this strong would
take a half-life to

Life is simple, yet complicated by seemingly insignificant moments that make all the difference in the end.

 

It is the unfiltered thoughts that escaped from our mouths in our weakest moments

It is the words that ruined relationships because we were too stubborn to apologise

It is the time that has passed between friendships in which too much has happened to reconnect

It is the memo...
