The Queries of a Heart that is Torn

I feel it itching under my skin
clawing away deep inside
I thought i could be myself around you
now i am just sorry that I ever tried

I find myself bending over backwards for you
trying to leap through these flaming hoops
Still, it isn't a choice that you choose
For that wouldn't ever, benefit you

We're winding down this endless road
neither of us can find any hope.
Still we hold ont...

Lovers

In search of love
Do travellers venture dangerous lands

Their hardships conveyed through the tender hands
Which caress and soothe the hearts of lovers left hurt
Which push and help these lovers out of the dirt
And carry them away from the pull of the sand

Their eyes seemingly sharp and bold
For with this courage have they only found it right
To laugh, to learn, to cherish, to fight
Fight ...

You and Me

Hold on to the dream,
of you and me,

floating free 
in air and sea. 

After all the drama,
a lifetime of battle scars,

it's still you and me,
for all eternity.

Don't say a word for now

Don’t say a word for now…

There is nothing to say 

that we haven’t already said…

 

Walk with me for a while…

From here to nowhere… 

 

Close your eyes…

Trust my hand…

There is nothing to see

that we haven’t already seen…

 

Nothing to hear 

that we haven’t already heard…

 

Nothing to fear…

No horizon line where to scape…

No unfulfilled dreams to cha...

Incantation (A Song for Winter)

Stay with me, I beg you
You’re all that I have left
My safest place
Greatly, I fear
That the more I think of you
The more you will fade from me
Like others that I could not keep 
You are all the spirit I have within me
My intangible dream
Without you
I would know nothing of hope
But
If the light you give 
Should be smothered into smoke
I would not fight the dark
Rather,
I would hav...

Different This Time

Pick and choose it

Place it

Move it

It's so beautiful- 

Isn't it beautiful?

I spin it and

Twist it

Flip it upside down

This way is better

I like this much better

Pull it

Shape it

Hold it together and 

Tape it 

I can make it

So much better

      This Time

I watch it and 

Play it

Over and over again

No- 

Change it

Arrange it

Nothing More

I think of you, chastise myself, 

And press your name away

Ignoring, stubbornly, the fact, 

You’re present every day

 

I don’t ask why I cannot help 

But seek your commentary

On every task, or smile of mine- 

A wish I cannot bury

 

I say, embarrassed at myself, 

That this affair ends now. 

This fantasy, this made-up game, 

I cannot keep allowing

 

After...

Elixir

I drink the elixir of your words

to calm my nerves,

to hear the crunch of leaves

on my way to brighter days,

to see another creative soul

soar above the chaos of a broken life,

to witness corrosion

turn to gold,

to prolong the beauty of this moment,

indefinitely.

Heart

 

The suffering, the pain, it’s over now 

All that is left is a pounding heart trying to heal and move on 

A heart that fought so hard to stay alive 

A heart that held on until the last minute the last goodbye 

Thumping, beating, pulsing 

The pain, the suffering made the heart strong 

So strong that it grew a thick wall 

A wall that cannot be broken 

A wall that no longe...

You

I keep finding myself thinking back to the day we met

It was April 23rd I believe

I thought my life was full

I thought my life had meaning

It wasn’t till I met you that I realized it was incomplete

         Now all I wanna do is show you i care and love you

Hopefully you feel the same way

I mean we’ve been together for almost 2 years now

Surrounded By Love

As the years go on, and the beauty fades
They are arm in arm, like nothing has changed
And as he hovers close, I can hear what she says
She says - just as sweetly as the very first day...
 
 "Paint me with your love 
  make me shiny and new
  give me all your colours
  it's what I dream of
  I'll be painted, sated
  in layers of love."

And as he hears her words, I can see he smiles

I love you

It is late and all is silent

The summer night has closed in...

A solitary espresso to ruminate

On the world... I love you.

 

Three simple words that encompass

the universe and all its beautiful mysteries.

 

I love you,

Your soul is with mine, as you sleep,

Like strange incense, they wisp and play.

 

Our souls know more than

they will reveal...

Poetry Prompt: 'Forever is composed of nows'

 

Just the right amount of squeeze 

at my hip

of a lemon 

on the pasta we craft for each other

of the sponge he knows I don’t like to touch when wet.

A tongue, a croissant, a bottom smack, 

exactly when we wanted one

A well-timed tease, balletically treading that tightrope line 

from this now, to the next, to the next to the next please

Procrastination

 

my partner says

I can’t write anymore poetry.

until I take out the bins

complete that assignment 

(for which I’m paying thousands for the privilege)

and preferably have a shower

 

not out loud 

but I hear it in his sighs

and the way he closes the cupboard doors

#3 (sister mine)

 

 

Sister mine.

A perfect

spite-jewelled child.

 

Eyes and smokes

rolled, over

our shared veins.

 

Frayed but firm,

trapping us

in warm blood.

Tips for a clean breakup

 

 

First, fumigate

Your cell walls fresh-free

of their love.

 

Second.

 

Odious

poison barbed

bitter nothings

must be dumbly plucked from each pink pore,

thrown to landfill,

labelled 'Hazardous biowaste, may cause hideous burns'.

 

Third, make re-chaste your newly bleach-scoured bone and blotted clean flesh 

with a sore blessing of Domestos and clov...

My mad friend,

a handful

of sequinned

 

wild-eyed zeal,

teetering

on bullets.

 

Shield-in-mind,

I should call

For backup.

5 things I remember from the beginning

 

 

Giggles and winks at romantic excess 

The mountains seem like overkill yes

I’d said with a grin that shone my delight 

And fastened my thighs steel clam-snap tight, 

 

The still of his stare, blue-blazing and prised 

By billows of sun emulsified 

In bright, surf-swept skies and slick seas of cloud,

 

Long salted kisses, wet noses bowed,

We Are All Of Us

We are all of us children
grown up and making our own
way in the world
still children
for all of that.

We are all of us dreamers
woken up to our own
reality
still dreaming
for all of that.

We are all of us lovers
in love with making our own

still loving
for all of that.

We are all of us seekers
stretching up to find our own

Résumé

Résumé / Michael Kwack

 

Love is,

like art,

dull without passion.

 

Marriage is,

like enterprise,

tough without fortune.

 

Home is,

like chair,

harsh without comfort.

 

Life is,

like sleep,

dry without dream.

 

Death is,

like letter,

empty without story.

 

Will is,

like poem,

absurd without wit.

Shine On

Don't ever let anyone convince you 
to not share your soul songs. 

The weaponized words 
they hurl towards you, 
are formed from 
their own insecurities. 

You get one shot, 
in this time and space, 
accompanied by 
crabs in a bucket, 
and a host of other cliches,
determined to control 
your creative mind. 

Give in to dark energy,
and you become it. 

Rise above it.

A Cautionary Tale

Come close if you must, 

to my heart of rust. 

 

Taste my sorrows

of ash and honey,

 

beneath the illusion 

of love and money. 

 

After the show, 

your life’s a mess, 

you’ll fall in line 

with the rest.

 

. . .

 

It’s not too late, 

to change your fate.

 

Turn away from a life 

of heartbreak.

 

What you seek 

is found within,

Filtered Memories

Back seat kisses, 

backyard volleyball,

barbecues, 

long walks in the woods, 

sunbathing on the beach, 

smiling, laughing,

talking for hours, 

holding hands, 

slow dancing to George Straight songs,

making love until dawn, 

falling asleep in each other’s arms...

Filtered memories, 

behind the sheer curtain of my mind,

or fantasies, 

found in a bottle
