made to withdraw
in a state of argumentative woundedness
from the verbal battlefields of soured love
the depths of its value poured away
an expelling from and disassociation with the soul's sustenance
integrated into a foreign strangeness
painfully woven into the fabric of loneliness
while unwantedly hearing every door
that you hoped could be reopened for prodig...

older I become
the more of what you intended to do and be
I am finding is gradually being brought
into the light of my life at last
step by daily step piece by beloved piece
the silenced constancy of your once misunderstood tender care
finally drawing the worthy attention and rewards
never paid in your living days.
The unnoticed filling of our home with an air of ...

like the companionship of roses
but dewed with human tears
they gather around the thorniness of the deed,
the sad forced departure
trying so hard to glean something from the loss
able to create even a small and kindly glow
as their minds struggle
the unexpected dark event
This was an ordered death.

not knowing where I was
though I walk here daily and had known the landscape since childhood.
Maybe I was half asleep from the effects of work?
maybe it was the clouds strangely affecting the light?
But in those moments of loss and disorientation
it seemed as though I had been forcibly involved with the deepest unknown
given no other option t...

my saddled poetical intention
pulled up short at the first fence
words teased but didn't want to take part
what should have been an easy trip for them
to reach the finishing line was not to be
they had let me down shortly after the start
refusing to run from my pen
it was as though I was driving a car without indicators
sailing a ship bereft of a compass

after quite some time
the red block capitals
not being weather proof enough
have worn away
as will this coastal path
by lifetimes of defiant rambling feet
of which some voluntary feet will return
to put right any unavoidable damage it has to be said.
Although having paid little heed of the unsociable warning
we nevertheless can still feel the unfriendli...

I would swim any ocean-he had said
I would climb any mountain-he had said
I would walk a mile over hot coals-he had said
I would fight my way through all the armies in the world-he had said
just to prove how much I love you-he had said.
See you on Friday night-he had said on Thursday night
if its not raining-he had additionally said.

snaking pulsating conduits
electrically monitoring your earlier than usual arrival
fluid providing fluid removing
neccessarily invading the glass display encasement
those life saving imperative connections
you would not have been
the beautiful frail dwarfed miracle
that you are on this first of your days.

I can never go back to his heart
until every single second of its damaging effect on mine
has bled from my memory.
I am near bereft of the desire
to look anymore at his version of love
through the only torn rag curtained bleak window
he has to offer.
Having to endure another beginning of the old
another carrying of my sorrowful luggage
to the waiting train to ...

Jubilation abounds! Spiritually I am at one with Heaven!
Everything within me is giving off the feeling of renewed proposition.
My passion for life refreshed.
Hope is high flying.
All my solutions have been clarified.
No more will thoughts winter in my mind.
Every dream is blossoming into a future
that talks to me with silk smooth promise.

"it hasn't ended just yet,so continue with the celebrations!"
bloomings and migratory birds continue gesticulating.
See! the grass is still rising and Aprils showers intermittently visit
becoming late Augusts friend and dance partner.
All these and more go on holding hands
a warming togetherness waltzing to the suns fading burnt sienna music.
Colours from natures c...

for safety reasons I live behind glass
the other side being safe is a lie that I must breathe in to breathe out
which makes me cry,why I don't know
but what I do know is that although life on my side
shines through to the other side constantly
it is never able to reveal a single movement or moment of truth.

spirit on imagined wings notes my plea then with all haste flies
to whisper in the sleeping ear of my beloved of how for him this heart sings
that he dawn awoken will hear the echoes for they shall cling
help make him aware of the sincere offerings my love implies
to favourably clothe his decision and fulfill my needs
such useage of no more beautiful words than these wishful se...

Here are the days
whose graphic ingredients continually feed us.
Bitter-sweet tasteless and tasteful histories.
A well stocked larder of visually pictorial and mindfully remembered fayre.
Some deliciously placed between slices of suns and moons so wantonly consumed again and again
others left to become subjected to never ending shelf lives.
Seasoned past times rotating over ...

Her rising to the surface of life is without possibility
she continues sinking
knowing what terrible consumer
is working its destruction beneath her calm exterior.
There is no need for her apology of having tried to go it alone
but the thought of her having tried to do so
brings on a series of unwanted gulps in my throat.
Here is a lady who always insisted

first dawn of his new loneliness arises.
The weight of her absence is being born
in the everything she once was
and in the everywhere they had been together.
He is being exiled
to where his unwanted companion
is waiting with dark,vicious gifts
gifts he is forced to accept.
So long is the road to recouperation
so long will it be for blessings of ...

when we forget,dear memory come to call
though your content's be both dark and light
that with age we may laugh now of when you made teardrop's fall
strange,our reversal's are like the sun coming out at night.
With experienced heart's we perform this change
from behind the souls time renewing shield
arrow's of sadness can no more disarrange
or make such alteration's yield...

sorrowfully homing in on failure
mourners of the defeated warriors of ill intent
unable to have darkened lifes illuminations
or shake any from their happy mantlings.
My dreams rejecting each and every one of their shadowing attempts
as I lie within my fortress of becalmed sleep
wrapped in the loosened moon dipped tourniquet of night
blind eyed to the huddled coweri...

TEAR'S MUST NEVER DRY.
SYMPATHIE'S HAVE NO ENDING.
WE WANT TO SUFFER THEIR SUFFERING'S.
OUR LOUD ACCUSATORY VOICE'S RENOUNCE THOSE WHO CARRY THE GUILT.
OUR QUIETENED VOICE'S WILL PAY HOMAGE TO THOSE
WHO BECAME ASHEN GHOST'S
THAT WE NEED TO HAUNT US FOREVER.
THEIR CALLING OUT TO US IN PAIN
MUST NEVER CEASE TO RESONATE ACROSS THE DIVIDE.
LET US KEEP FOCUSED ON SE...

Chair's having lost their comfort's long ago,
curtain's too many times besieged by moth mouth's and sunlight,
a table with an unlevelling mind of its own,
inadequately repaired ornament's
that had strayed over mantlepiece edge's on countless occasion's
dulled once dazzling kitsch odditie's hoarded in my magpie day's,
a wood wormed grandfather clock,now out of time,having stood to...

unexpectedly,hit by a full on grieving bombshell of this;
his early death.
The funds challenging consequential cost too!
But oh! and then some,of having to greet the long disconnected relations,
pouring in drove's out of the woodwork
salivating for his house contents,
along with any monetary additional's they hope will put the icing on undeserved bequeathed cakes.

There was my love nest
under the roof of an abandoned cottage
where I was laid low on many occasions in the arms of convenient lovers
with only shadows as witnesses to my promiscuity.
It has been rumoured that this cosy ruin
had also been frequented by many other love needing of my gender
for the very same purpose.
In our remote locations

In which I am an escaped binary presence
slipping the clutch's of computerized control,freed,
taking to the heavens on laughter guilded wings
to join the glittering throng of innumerable earth-seen diamond's
my sleeping memory updating as I go
higher and higher into the cosmos
chasing flame tailed comets,and flinging my digitalized craft
through airless void's betwee...

linger awhile,weakening love,
for I feel our days together are dwindling,
damaging me beyond all reparations.I ask,
since the inflictions of your inevitable departure are looming
and will cut deeply,that you do not leave me in loneliness,
until my heart has emptied its last tear in preparation for a life in shadows.
Come closer,but do not pity me.
Though the sorrow I shal...

at the very beginning I jumped in heart first but then thought
I can't believe I'm doing this!
what the hell was I thinking? maybe this isn't such a good idea blah blah blah (and a few etceteras)
except at this point its too late for backing out
because we're moving!
climbing then spinning and looping crazy-like
but thinking that I'm more than sure we're going to survive...

your mood has unnaturally transfigured
I am fearing your desires alteration and physical dissatisfaction in each changing gesture.
Our exchanges of words lately
have been thinning out into longer and longer silences.
I wait anxiously hoping and shivering seeing a descending moon
innocent but helping to add to the deeper darkness
in your new look destroying any chance of...

I could break my love into quarters
maybe send a piece to the Neptunian brood and their Trident bearing King of the sea
perhaps another to Queen Nature and her seasonal children
possibly a third to Lord Moon and his starry family
I might even consider giving the last part to Emperor Sun and tendril'd dependants
but should these givings be my duty to do?
they should but my he...

In some hopeful place of my anticipations
I have stored a true heart,a dedicated soul to be
and the ash's of a calendar that once was crowded with too many lonely days.
There also,a casket filled with the ways
of how deeply I could love the right person
but not he who promises the world on a plate at far more than a costly price.
Maybe one day,the perfect you might arri...

attempting to restore our crash damaged words is impossible
those that have died in dark sun drained conversations
destroying the yesterdays
in which I thought we were trying to teach each other who we were meant to be
able to find the perfect way to a perfect future destination.
But your intentions were only one summers flowers
that were to to be drowned in the first of m...

flash-floods gatecrash at will
when and wherever they choose
creating castaways on the upper islands
of their own home.

Call it what you will.
Although we don't own control of the...

not much time passes without me thinking of them
adrift on more of a raft than a boat
being on a sea they should have had nothing to do with.
Naive to the precarious inhospitalities of the tides
which in too many cases will send them to people the biggest silence of all,
cruelly diverted from their appointment with freedom
while the inexcusable looking on world is trying to...

An Owls reverberative call wavers hauntingly
from somewhere on the periphery of this yet untouched meadow,honeyed with tranquility
sagacious,facially heart-shaped vole hunter on night duty.
I need to stop and wholely absorb everything about the everything on eye pleasing display.
Nearby,the chimney of a cosily glowing window'd farmhouse
sends out intermittent grey'ish quil...

Stars blaze down from a jet sky
and a half moon appears
to cast a strange rippling line across the sea:
It was exactly
as if two tides were meeting,riffling together,
merging,shimmering in a watery embrace.
This more than satisfied me as being just that,observing from the hotel balcony,
because,I like these kind of beautiful interferences
with everyday mundane thi...

are only *borrowers*
of the things thought of as being owned by us
and only for as long as they are
could never prostitute my soul
for the sake of any possession
no matter how sentimentally or financially valuable
the only and most beautiful one
soul and all.
