The Fifth Element

She is fire,

Get close and she will melt your heart,

The light in your darkest hour 

But play with her and you'll get burnt.

 

She is earth,

Her roots rich with self-love and worth, 

The natural evolution females seek

But mess with her nature, 

And she'll bring forth her seismic wrath. 

 

She is air,

Free and not confined,

Moves like the wind and her path kno...

Broomstick Baby

she used to set me on fire

her eyes lit my every day

that touch a breath of silk

voice so alluring and fey

 

magic slipped into reverse

our love shrinks unspoken

chemistry fell out of kilter

her fairy wand has broken

 

careless now, her moods

weaving so casual gashes,

disdain on that elfin face,

a tongue with fifty lashes

 

bored and up to mischief

We Run Like Water

I'm a reptile

But I'm warmer 

When I'm with you

You stir something in me

Like I'm always on the edge of something

There’s a chemical reaction between us

It makes me feel like static energy 

Could we really be the result of chance?

Can chance pull like a magnet?

Or is this kismet?

Because

It runs fast, long, rife

It is our double life

We share a secret world t...

The Swinger

Its always the same old story

I meet a woman and we click

We go out for a while and talk

Time seems to go by so quick

 

After a bit something happens

Signs of unease appear, frowns,

My mask slipped for she's seen

The dark side of my downs

 

Moods are fatal for couples

You have to banter and smile

Hide the despond with a grin

Play happy families for a while

Disappearing Ink

You pen beautiful poems,

revealing hurts, worries,

secret desires of your soul.

Dancing on high wires,

creating cosmic alchemy,

then your words

are gone in a blink.

You must be using

disappearing ink!

This Chemical Romance

 

We’ve a chemical romance, we’ve got chemistry

We have covalent bonds that attract you and me

 

Our shared electron pairs formed a lasting attraction

We’re drawn to each other, a combination reaction

 

Our chemical elements were destined to bind

My yin and your yang complete and defined

 

When I’m in your embrace its Oxytocin heaven

You’re sweeter than Carbon12, H...

I wasn't dead,

just never alive

Turner Prize

gold medal

all for a dive.

 

A dyspraxic in a speedboat

as I struggled to swim

in shark infested waters

but I won't let them win.

 

The rewards of success

for creating a mess

an unmade bed

for an economy's left.

 

People can study

and some even praise

others are starstruck
