Protect

Keep me under a loving eye,

let me speak your name with pride,

let me serve your every need,

let my doubt be lost at sea.

 

Spit on me.

I deserve it.

I'm disgusting in your eyes,

lie to me and I'll interpret

truth to cherish in your lies. 

 

Sleep with me until I'm safe,

till I know the snake is dead.

The snake that bit me:

hear him hissing,

find him an...

My last night, in the flat we almost shared

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...

Wayward Souls

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 ...

Todo el Tiempo

I think about you all the time,

without reason or rhyme.

You are like a tattoo,

on my mind. 

Todo el tiempo.

Enternal souls,

intertwined. 

Dancing, dodging,

in this cosmos

for a little while.

Creating sparks of love, 

to lessen lonely nights,

and light up dark skies.

Identities

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
You ...

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.

The Walls We Built

I could not reach you

But how I sought to

How desperately I longed

To belong to you

But the walls between us

The ones you built

Stood far too strong

And far too tall

For me to reach

 

Oh, but how I tried

How relentlessly I cast my bleeding hands 

Against the jagged rocks and stones 

That kept me from you

Lost,

Alone

But how I tried

 

And I wait...

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

Won't ...

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.

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

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

of ...
