Something Missing .

I have an air of something missing 

Like I forgot my key 

Perhaps we should entwine again 

So I can test the theory 

That youre the something missing 

Youre the key 

That would open 

All doors 

And maybe thats what I am afraid of ....

Whenever I think of you 

With your pirates point of view 

and your tendency to break hearts 

So beautiful they were 

Do you collect them and store 

Them under your bed 

To get them out at midnight?

And look at them again 

In there brokenness 

To feed your words and poems 

I met you and it 

Was like looking in a mirror 

Lessons learned 

And how beautiful you

sometimes i think

Sometimes I think of you 

Like all the lights came on at once 

And its Christmas day all day 

Every day 

Sometimes I think of you 

And its tinged with sadness 

Of what might have been and what was and is 

So tell me something boy 

Are you happy in your skin 

Or are you wanting more 

That christmas day feeling again 

When all our shadows run away 

Come find me th...

hear my voice

A long the road 

I hope you hear my voice 

Im without you now 

But this song playing on the radio 

Reminds me of you 

Its been what seems 

A million days 

Yet still I wish you well on your way 

Do you think our paths will cross again 

Maybe that is right . 

For you and me to have parted 

And then to reunite .......

Life is full of love 

And loss

I lost you 

I found him.

I set out upon my journey tomorrow 

And part of me reflects 

On you and how you are always with me 

Ill think of you in the tavernas 

And along the road 

And maybe we shall meet again 

One day 

As travellers 

In this journey of ours 

In this story 

Upon these pages

I dont know why I write these words 

Only on the off chance 

You may read 

And take some comfort 

In the cold dark night 

There is peace 

And a knowing 

That you think of me sometimes 

Your face in the crowd 

Will always be more 

Than the others 

You are a star 

One who sees souls 

And colours 

And light in others 

We are sensitive souls 

You and I

They say it gets easier with time 

Missing you 

And I realise 

This ache I have for you 

Will not dissapate

And no matter

Where you are 

Or who your with 

I still want you 

Think of you 

Every night before i sleep 

Every day first thought. 

I wonder if you do me too . 

And to all the .men ill never love

Im here without you 

But in my dreams you are 

And you set me free 

I wonder why i walk this path 

And why our love couldnt last 

But it has lasted 

In a way 

Because i still think of you

Every day  

And hope you think of me 

We hurt each other 

No reason why 

I want to be the one to dry your tears

dream time

There is a space between waking and dreaming 

A moment when i catch my breath 

And i am not sure of realities

The colours are muted here 

But you are always here 

In the darkness i  find you 

But we move towards the light 

Seeking truth 

An original dawn 

And a meeting of minds

the healing tree

Come sit under this tree with me 

Nobody else here but you and me 

Nobody to judge us 

I love you 

You love me 

Its as simple as can be 

Lay aside any past hurts 

Tell me exactly as it will be 

And so it is 

And so it will be 

You and me 

Under our healing tree

There is a clearing of energy 

And on this day 

When the rain trickles thick

Down my window pane, 

I think of you. 

Wonder what you are doing.  

On a day such as this, 

Wonder if you think of me

The flowers are happy now 

If only we could be too 

In each others company, 

For a while

To hold you in my smile again...

Cold morning /2

You are perfect in my eyes 

On that day

You came to find me

And all of the past hurts 

Mattered not 

You are wonderous to me 

And I want to explore

All that is unseen 

Between us. 

There will always be 

This link, 

This portal of energy 

I know she is there 

But it matters not. 

A branch  in the woods

A feather on a page 

We are the trees

Cold morning

It was a cold morning 

When you came to find me 

I was unsure 

You had made your way to me 

We were both wrapped up 

Against the bitter wind 

Both had dogs by our side

You seemed so different 

Yet still the same 

It's cold you said 

I wanted to say yes without you 

It's been cold 

Without you to hold me 

But I knew then. 

And know now 

That the path we ...

Wait for me /2

Remember that girl in the rain 

She still waits for you, 

She never wanted to leave 

She just wanted to be free

She heard your words that night

Somehow she heard your words

She heard you put up that fight 

If only I could touch you now, 

If only I could love you now 

Can't believe she gets tolook into those eyes

Can't believe every day she takes whats mine,

Wait for me

Remember that girl on the street 

She's still there for you 

She never wanted to leave 

She just did what was right at the time 

Fighting for survival 

Fighting to breathe 

Can't believe someone else looks into those eyes 

Can't believe someone else took what was mine 

So Angel just wait for me 

Angel just wait for me 

You And I can be free

I know this is my path,  

I must follow it and remain true, 

To be a Lightworker is no easy task 

Often I Am challenged

By dark And untruths 

But I must remain 

Solid in my

Butterfly Poem/early mornings

I wake in the early morning, 

I think of you, 

I think this is some sort 

Of insanity, 

This twin flame connection, 

The moon is still high

Up above 

And I think of what it's like to love 

So deeply 

Us Empaths do 

So silly now 

That I think of you

Butterfly poem/11

A nd now the time to fly, 

Had arrived again, 

As she stepped out of her 


Ready to soar to the blue sky, 

She thought of him 

And wished him well 

For in the rainbows 

Of forgiveness, 

She needed to let him go 

In order to breathe and travel again

Butterfly Poem 10

In this world of broken dreams, 

Not everything is as it seems, 

An enemy suddenly becomes a friend, 

A friend you know well, 

Asks too much, 

Too often, 

How do we learn, 

We learn by mistakes, 

For they are not mistakes 

But life's lessons, 

How do we know,. 

We me know by our humanity, 

Our common existence, 

We are more alike than we are different,

Butterfly Poem 9 /music ?

There's music in my soul, 

It lifts and haunts me, 

This beat of my heart, 

Is beating for you, 

The things we leave behind, 

The people too, 

I once had a sweetheart,  

He was oh so fine 

But he was never truly mine, 

The things we love, 

The things we leave, 

But music's in my soul, 

It will never leave, 

Or go, 

It will never LEAVE

Butterflypoem/8 earth angels

She was an earth Angel, 

Destined to walk the paths 

Of enlightenment 

To help others 

To find their light, 

For this was her destiny 

And forever in her heart 

Was a long time, 

He was Destined to cross 

Her path. 

Time and time 

Again and together 

They would make each other 


For two earth angels 

Are better than one..... ♥

Butterfly. POEM 7/midsummers

Midsummers eve, 

There is a quiet a stillness

As the wolves watch 

And the breeze ruffles 

The leaves in the trees, 

The animals know, 

Their eyes are bright and keen 

Watch them move, 

Watch them as they watch us 

The moon is high 

As the winds whistle, 

I think of you, 

I think of her 

We are all one tonight 

And the veil is thin

Butterfly Poem 6/Natasha

I see the sadness 

I want to take this away from you, 

I have been a mother to many, 

And now you, 

You think I am, 

Telling you what to do, 

It's because I have a strong, 

Desire to make it OK, 

To take the hurt away, 

From that night, long ago, 

My lovely, 

My love

Butterfly Poem 5/Raquel

I said we would laugh 

And laugh over him, 

So Amusing that we can see, 

The funny side now, 

My Rival, 

And now my sister, 

My friend, 

Virginia Woolf knew best, 

When she formed her clan, 

Something given, 

Something gained.  

Our laughter rings true 

Above his.......

Butterfly Poem 4/ Natasha

And so on this day, 

When I am surrounded by, 

Memories And tension, 

You walk back into my life 

And as sure 

As the tides 

and night and day, 

I will be there for you, 

In little ways,  

That I hope make 

A difference, 

And through the Sands of time, 

We belong to the universe,. 

Not always our family, 

Or the people who surround us, 

Mothers come in ...

Butterfly Poem 3/doors

How many times do we shut doors, 

Only to open them again 

And take a peek, 

Whilst others we must, 

Bolt shut, 

Others open briefly, 

Others stay ajar, 

I need you and you are not here.  

I need him and neither is he, 

Yet she remains, 

And he remains, 

Has returned, 

And I welcome this, 

A butterfly can fly through a tiny gap, 

So leave that door ajar fo...

I nurtured you 

Like you were my own 

Protected too

And one day

I know 

You will fly back to me, 

And land briefly 

I think of you, 

From time to time, 

But it is not, 

A constant ache, 

Like it used to be, 

We mother, 

In many different ways, 

Some grow forests, 

And books, 

Others many children, 

I know now my place in the universe,

Ownership /Butterfly Poem 1

You think you own me, 

Who owns a river, 

Who owns the Ocean, 

Or the moon,? 

Or the stars

You think by your words, 

Your threats your laughter 

And her threats

And jibes 

You can Control my life, 

Think again 

As certain 

As the Sands of time, 

I will rebuild, 

I will fly free.  

Butterflys will hide, 

In their cocoon, 

But watch them in full fli...

There is a peace, 

In knowing, 

You are close, 

But not close enough, 

How many people, 

Can we love in one life, 

How many doors close, 

But others open, 

Sometimes I walk through rooms, 

Covered in dusty sheets, 

Where there was our love, 

I pull back the blinds, 

And let the sun in, 

Dancing with dust angels...... 

I think of you from time to time,

And so you turn up, 

From the past, 

Asking me, 

To be perfect, 

Only I'm not, 

Im a flawed diamond, 

All my curves, 

All my edges 

So don't ask me to be 


You did long ago 

And then you chose her, 

Over me, 

And I can't help but feel, 

That you think, 

History will repeat itself, 

And I shall fall 

Again at your feet, 

But know this,

As I listen

As I listen 

To your music, 

I see you in all I do, 

And it makes me stronger, 

Not weaker, 

Shine Bright, 

We are all stars, 

Like dust,  

Returning to the earth, 

Be at peace,  

With mother earth, 

And father sky, 

May all your broken dreams heal, 

And for one moment, 

Be at peace

And listen .......

Everyone has a story, 

Listen carefully enough, 

I heard yours, 

I heard hers 

I heard his, 

I listened until my head hurt, 

Everyone can teach you, 

They are either a lesson, 

Or a blessing, 

I see the shadows move, 

They are only shadows, 

And I am safe, 

In the knowledge, 

You reassured me, 

But it's fair to say,  

I needed to stand on my own,

Shine Bright

There is no competition, 

Only the knowledge you were once mine, 

She was once mine, 

And now we have and all we have, 

Is this moment, 

Not yesterday, 

Or tomorrow, 

But this moment alone, 

So be at peace my friends, 

And shine Bright like a diamond, 

For this broken world we live in, 

Is still beautiful, 

Full of heroism 

And everyday miracles.......

So I sold a dress today, 

Full of broken dreams, 

And silly promises we made, 

Living in the moment, 

Is what we need to do, 

Im sure your living it, 

With her or him,. 

And I have finally let you go 

Memories fade, 

And the silly promises we made, 

Unstitched like broken seams 

I have a path to take, 

To help others, 

Find there way, 

So this dress,

Find a way home

Today on my way home,  a woman jumped off a bridge.  I do not know her fate,  but I know the effect it had on me.  Be at peace.  Police called it an incident.  

Angel wings carry you, 

May you now be free, 

Away from the ties that bound you, 

I say a prayer for you, 

May all that knew you be blessed too, 

From the sorrow that took you, 

You see we are all simply,

Hazy Days,  

And lazy nights,

Is this Love? 

Or an excuse for 

Not being alone,.

Without the booze,. 

The chocolate without the 


And it is a kind of loving 

A meeting of sorts,

Let us simply be,

We were

We were caught, 

In the garden of sin, 

You and I, 

Did you see,  

The lion,. 

In the streets of New York, 

See he can tell you, 

A tale, 

And so can I, 

We can sit on the rooftops, 

Until 4am, 

And drink coffee,  

At out favourite haunts, 

Did you see the lion, 

Did he tell you, 

My secrets, 

Did you listen 

Carefully at first, 

Sip a cocktail...

Runaway Dreams

This town full of stale ale smells, 

And broken dreams 

And still I love it 

and I love you my friend, 

Even though you were his lover, 

I have forgiven that, 

We smile at each other, 

And nod and exchange 

Our lives 

And you are beautiful, 

In my eyes, 

As friendship goes 

An angel, 

Even though you are fallen, 

You will rise again, 

Im sure

What will become of it, 

I know you are in danger, 

My love and I carry you, 

In my bones through the day, 

Your words of love, 

Are healing broken pieces, 

So I will listen to them,

You think of me in your morning calls, 

And last thing at night, 

And like a fool I believe you to be mine, 

You are healing broken pie...

And now I remember the blossom, 

On trees, 

The petals that fell, 

Like our childish whispers, 

I remember the fear of running late, 

Running last, 

And when I see blossom now, 

I touch it,

 hold it, 

And wonder why I am crying.........

Wrap your thoughts up in mine, 

Allow yourself to be vulnerable, 

As I answer all your questions, 

Baby you are so special to me, 

You have arrived in the nick of time,. 

And God always sends his love to me, 

So handsome, 

So smart,

So many questions unanswered, 

Mistakes made, 

I pray for those who still suffer, 

The officials who helped, 

The firefighters who fought, 

And the victims and families,. 

One year on nearly, 

Still no answers, 

Just muddled reports, 

Of how and why, 

And numbers concocted, 

To limit the truth 

They want the truth, 

We want the truth, 

Rest in peace

Something old something New.

Your memories are here, 

The touch of you far away, 

And I am finally leaving you 


Like a child letting go of a parents hand, 

For better, 

For worse 

In sickness in health, 

Promises broken, 

Promises made.  

Under this beautiful sky, 

I say your name, 

To the God's 

And thank Fuck I finally, 

Can wash you out of my hair 

And she is with me no...
