The red dust of Mars settles on my heart,
only her will can stop the thrashing of cymbals that call me to her.
Every cascade of flaxen strength undermines the facade of purity
but the tilt of her smile will resound everpresent.
Ablazen are her cobalt eyes, I draw strength from their tranquility
she could not know the foundation she raises the pyre of my love,
the freckled shoulde...

When you left, you took a piece of my heart
When you left, my whole world came tumbling down
I became so lost
I was left in the dark
You took with you my light
When you left, I learned to fight
I learned to navigate this world without you by my side
I learned to be strong to no longer rely on your love
You thought I was weak,
For feeling too much
Now, you're the one ...

One whole year's
Like lace leaves
From the cold trees
You are missing
Boxed deep and dusting
With bristles flaking
From the broken spine
So no silver lines
Our crisp, black-branched pine.

Christmas fairy lights still dangle,
Plastic string of neon candles,
Hallowing the wreckage of the year.
Streaming ‘River’ on repeat
River Warbling marrow-deep
Wash away those spiteful, December bones.
From jigsaws sat on nickel knees
To whisky-nursing you in sprees,
Femurs first you left us piece by piece.
Frailty distils the waters
Trickles down through all your daughters
Break dust with smiling ...

of taming lions,
of dark, eyeless mileage,
of piloting this wondrous ark,
rotting fleshy timber,
of all the cages - rusting through

You've already left.
537 miles North of me, of us.
I'll ruffle up to join you in four (agonising) weeks
but to my unconcerned shame,
I'm too sad to sleep in that bed without you, too ungoverned.
Nostalgia, even the warm kind, is too much feeling for me.
Something about it has always made my lipids curdle
and an unpleasant tickle cloud in my brain.
The street ou...

I don’t necessarily want to be like you
There are times when you drive me up the wall!
I thought I wanted to be friends with you
I thought that we were something that we we're not
The reason is that I want to be like you, not that I want you
I want to be able to turn my phone over when someone calls
I want to be had a look away and ignore that “ting”
I want to put myself first...

This boy this man this Angel of mine
I say mine
This you are not
To me you are
I mean it not in that way
I dont own you
I am part of you and you me too
Two soles alight
Us two in flight
Or on sea..
We fly side by side
You sail with me
The water gets choppy
Weigh up the boat..trust the waves
They carry us float
Our faith soft gro...

I can’t breath, my lungs are burning
Everything around me is twirling.
Everything inside me squeezes eminently, grabbing away my desire to live on.
I am filled with pain, till my last bone.
My eyes are full of blood rivers.
He is dying in the roaring silence.
As I opened my eyes,
I saw dazzling stars dancing in the sunset
It was as quiet as a de...

He kisses your shoulder,
then your cheek.
His touch makes your knees weak.
How do I know?
Before you, and a dozen more,
it was me.
Now, I’m a faded memory,
as you will be.
Don’t believe me?
I too used to laugh at the absurdity.
He could never leave me.
As he grows older,
his women get younger.
Curiously, they look like me at 23.
How cruel fate ...

I think about you all the time,
without reason or rhyme.
You are like a tattoo,
on my mind.
Todo el tiempo.
in this cosmos
for a little while.
Creating sparks of love,
to lessen lonely nights,
and light up dark skies.

This morning, I played an old record
- the one you always turned off
Just to hear the music with my own ears
It had as much dust
As all the mornings I didn't listen to it
Because your ears didn't want to
Last night I wore that dress, the one you don't like
Just to see how it suits me
- through my own eyes
And when you saw me
you told me I was beautiful

We lose each other once in a while
We find ourselves in others
most of the time
We may meet some, fresh living and brand new
Forget about the ones we lost, completing one another
Or, on the contrary, at times
We meet again - how different
Forget about the new ones
And turn our faces to the bits of ourselves
we have missed in each other
We live through people
I live through you all

Traditional local vacations
Lighting up a town
Making dark nights bright
To lift spirits when feeling down
Dark so dark unable to see
Then you come along on a lighting spree
Sparks from you fly off to me
I now shine like a Christmas tree
Twin flame duo side by side
Glowing outward flames never ending
Together bright souls darkness mending
Shining brightest infin...

Years ago, I heard about a love endless
Were the times,
When love was sprouting
Songs was inviting to fall in love
unbelievable love stories were written
The war had over
Giving passed to unexpected coming backs.
She was an adorable woman
Worthy daughter of his dedicated professor
He was a handsome man and brilliant student,
She was sweet, lovely, ...

I'm a believer in change
variety the spice of life
sex a classic example
my contortions are rife
dog-eared my manual
illustrations now faded
after years of practice
I'm still not too jaded
girls get the benefits
novelties they enjoy
with an original boy
yet some do quibble
my antics not enough
not eager to trapeze
Tuesday 9th March 2021 10:38 am
Must I hold back
Hold back on saying
Excel in doing
For the words may be too strong
Strong words can weaken this angelic
Beautiful soul at times
At breaking point
To heavily love somebody
Like I do you can put strain on the heart
If one way
But for love
It to be returned
A constant circle of security
A pure heart too pure for purity
Sunday 7th March 2021 7:58 pm
I’m running but I’m not moving anywhere
Can’t fade away
That’s always been my prayer
I would have no oxygen
I would have no air
I’ve counted to many restless nights
Hoping it won’t be one tonight
He says knock
And He will open the door
But to many times
I’ve been chained to the floor
Not being able to knock
That door is lo...

What is it that attracts us to other human being so much we can’t breathe?
What is that gate to heaven and hell?
What is it that attracts me to you?
Eyes in the dark, like reindeers in headlights. About to live?
What was life? What was all that fear and anger? Sweat, trembling, catching breath so hopelessly.
So hopelessly lost in you. Forever....
