I don't know what to say other than ......

I wish 
I could hold you tight
And that you'd hold me 
In a cocoon of togetherness, spun of the strongest thread
Only to break as beauty forces itself out into the world
It's metamorphosis delicate, fragile
Exquisite in its simplicity 

I wish 
I could kiss you .......

Sea Dreams

Barefoot she walks along the beach 
Retracing lost memories in ripples of sand
The murmur of the surf plays in her ears like muffled 
notes bowed on a cello
the sun drips down behind 
the cobalt waves casting shadows to equal those of 
her longest night 
Hushed colours paint her skin in hues of poignancy, 
her heart beats in rhythm with the tide as she glides
through the surf
Footprints ...

Ghost Dancer

We danced to Cuban rhythms 
Late into the night 
I twirled my skirts in girlish glee
Giggling in delight
My heart it started pounding 
As you held me tight
I waited for the kiss
That would bring me back to life 
Brutally it struck me
At the stroke of midnight
You were just an apparition
Your kiss turned into frostbite 
A phantom on the dance floor 
A cruel trick of the light

When I hear this music
I think of you
Crashing through my senses
Like a thunderstorm 
Painting colours inside my eyes

I do not know you
I do not know myself
Things are changing 
Beyond my control.

When it was simple 
The melody was soothing
But the two parts now encountered
Absorb each other
Becoming one

The quickening of my pulse
Takes me by surprise .......

Is it thoughts...

I can taste the colours of your kiss
Fiery crimsons bursting through 
Mellow yellows
Exploding into sweet tangelo
Cool blues
Turning violet
As my senses play this quiet duet

I hear music when you touch me
Bass lines throbbing alongside
Exotic rhythms
Tumbling into trembling strings
Soaring voices
Dulcet tones
Within your music my body groans

I can smell flowers in your words

a quiver of droplets

coursing through my body

En Pointe


A bittersweet mixture of agony and ecstasy
Found in the lone voice of a piano 
Painting colours in harmony
That leave my senses reeling 
Flying through the air like an arrow
Shot from cupids bow 
An electric arc in the atmosphere
Piercing my soul with forgotten longing
Balancing in timeless beauty
Pirouetting chiffon billows elegantly through the notes
Defying gravity
Suspended in ...

I long to gaze upon your rugged beauty
Magnificent as you rise up
From soft flowing valleys
To collide with the clouds
Slate coloured eyes 
Surveying everything beneath you
Dangerously calling me to conquer 

I long to swim in your energy
Caught up in the waves of your emotion
Intoxicated by your ebb and flow
My sanity lost in your cadence 
Throbbing in your tide 
Adrift in the moment...

Guilty Pleasure ....

I pull you out 
Smoothing your creases 
Lying you flat so I can 
Fill you with 
A sweet mixture of guilt 
And poison
There's artistry in my fingers
As I roll you expertly
(From years of practice)
Along your length
Into the shape I desire
I lick your edges 
Firmly sealing you with a feather like touch
I place you lovingly between
My lips
Flicking the flame 
That will bring you to li...

The Fey Queen

Amongst the folded hills
The forest ripples
Down into the valleys, 
Clambers back up 
Towards heaven 

A Saxon Lord, a hunter
Atop his white and noble steed
His kinsmen close behind him 
Hounds baying at the Stag
They pursue 
Charges through the sunlight
Dappled green
Painted on his brow

Concentrated on his quest
Divided from his clan
Appearing in his vision

Sweetness fills my senses 
As my tongue rolls around you 
Savouring your taste

As my mouth gently engulfs your contours
Relishing every second until 
Finally releasing your zesty finish

Humans & Poets

We are human 
And poets 
Humans make mistakes 
Poets own their faux pas
Endearingly on paper
Making us a uniquely
Fucked up bunch of individuals

I know you're out there 
I can hear your voice in the wind that rustles the leafless trees 
Like them I'm waiting for Spring 
For warmth 
To grow again inside love 

I'm searching for you
I chase my shadow in the fading colours of the setting sun
Look for your message amongst the stars 
Face upturned 
Bathed in moonlight
In awe of the universe

In Crisis

Can you spare a bit of change mate?
I'm truly am in need
I don't need a fix of powder
Or an ounce of weed

To help my bones get warm
I need a bed for the night
My sleeping bag's all torn

Can't you see me here?
I'm sitting right in front of you

Farewell my friend 
For now you're gone
To sing your words
With angles strong
With top hats raised

No Mercy!

A Rant 
by a Drunk & Angry Poet! 


Fuck you! You selfish bastard
You wanker, prick & runt
You think that I deserve this
You're an ugly little cunt

Throughout our 14 years
Via your manipulation
You've broken me piece by piece
Now I'm changing that situation

You think that you can fuck her
And keep me as a friend
You think I'll take it lying down
Believe me this is the end

Eyes so dark like drowning in molten mystery 
Your stare shatters my resolve
A seraphic touch played its music on my skin
Your hands lead me into danger
A rhythmical voice that unburdens my heart
Your song confuses my mind
A remembered dream that torments my sleep
Your face impregnates the screen
Once my lover now my friend
Your silence screams at me

Die hard hipsters
Wildly clinging to images of

Lost inside weed infested minds
Grazing shoulders with the

Franticly plunging ahead 
Towards perceived sophistication
Bearded dudes 
Heads cocked at a jaunty angle
Whiskey in hand, lust in their eyes

Just because you're nice to me
Don't think that I don't know

Your intention is on 'show'
I've seen your eyes roam over me
Your stare it's like a prison
You've fucked me in your fantasy
So sure of a submission
Do you imagine I'll come willingly?

You've planned it all so brilliantly
Engineered it with such style

In quiet contemplation
I sit & listen to the rain
Its gentle beat, its soothing tone
Then its torrent once again
It is a natural cleanser
That washes quite away
All these pesky feelings
That are so determined to stay

I wish I had another soul

To sit with here, who might
Enjoy the rain & like to share
This music of the night
But alas I sit alone
And listen once again

Self Indulgent

This is me 
An embroidered creature cobbled together from fragments of history
Bouncing around in this abnormality we refer to as life
Always seeking answers to questions that have yet to be asked
Tirelessly looking for a way in
Chasing the wind over barren landscapes with threadbare trees waiting for sun kissed days - to be

To the Girl in the Oak Tree

As you sit a top the branches
Of this ancient temple old and wise
Without a worry or a care
Shielding sunlight from your eyes
Can you see the woman down below?
Her face is full of fear
She has a tale she needs to tell 
But, not one you'll want to hear
No fairytale of love and hope
This memoir from within
But a nightmare from which she waits 
For her life to begin
You see, not long from...

A Strange Encounter

Just minding my own business
Standing in a line
A basket full of shopping
In a headspace that was mine
When suddenly a voice piped up
'What you cooking love?!'
And being kind - I turned around
And stood gazing from above
Upon a short & greasy man
Who's eyes were firmly fixed
To the swelling of my bosom
He really was transfixed!
I cleared my throat and said 'hello'

Enjoy where you land
Push on and breakthrough
Trust in your soul

Follow the wormhole
To experiences new
The universe waits
For those who will take it
Go find a playmate 
And cradle their spirit
Kiss under the stars
And smile in the rain
Create your own memoirs
Own all your pain

Waiting to Happen

Who is she? 
This being 
This life
In and out of existence with no real

A superficial exterior needed to shield 
A crumbling, shattered spirit, hidden Underneath
There are no pieces
No fragments to paste together
Nothing inside but a void so deep it might never be filled
Be warned 
This is a cruel and dangerous world
Where nothing is ever as it seems
I use words as weapon...

Trumpets, Burglars & Puddles

Sometimes I wish I didn't feel
I wish my heart was made of stone
That I was immune to all this shit
Of being on my own
My world is full of Cockwombles
Fuckwits & Spunk Trumpets
Turd Burglars & Cunt Puddles
Wank Stains & Fuck Nuggets! 
And those are just the few 
That I've had the joy of meeting
I'd like to dare the rest to meet 
Somewhere - however fleeting 
Stand up and be counted

Learning How To Swim

I'm jumping in with both feet
But I've forgotten how to swim
I can not find my paddle
And the water's pretty grim! 
I need a newer guide book
To navigate this path
Why is it so difficult
I just want to have a laugh! 
Maybe I should google it
'How to find a mate'
But one who really means it
And is punching at his weight
It's impossible to tell from
The sparse detail that I've got

No Disguise

With lipstick & powder
Applied to my face
Concealing my feelings
The lines erased
A low cut top with 
A push up bra
My boobs are quite decent
(When viewed from afar!)
A skirt emblazoned
With a gaudy design
Dressed to impress
With a questioning hemline
Spanx to suck in
The tummy of mum
Smooth all the bumps
Tuck in my bum
I'm out on the town 
Hoping to find
The man of my dreams

A Kiss Farewell With No Regret

As the minutes tick by
Seconds taking hours
To reach their goal
I ask myself
Is he here?!

Standing alone in a sea full of faces
People turning from my 
Penetrating gaze
And I ask myself 
Is he here?!

Eyes closing, inwardly searching
Thwarting the orgy of noise 
Head against the wall 
And I tell myself
He   is   here! 

The countdown begins

I've been issued a quest 
I need to achieve
A kiss, just one kiss
On New Years Eve
Is a kiss what I need?
I'm thinking not
Why buy into the hype
And hope for the jackpot
I'd rather sit home
Snug & warm by the fire
Than go to the pub 
In my party attire
But oh how I'd like
A kiss - just to feel
Like the new year was perfect
To make it seem real
It's what everyone does
So I'm led to...

New Years Eveno kisses here to speak of



I long to tell you all my dreams
And hear yours in return
Oblivious to the world outside
As we surround ourselves with words

I long hear your lilting voice
As you whisper words of love 
Captured in this moment 
In which there is nothing else

I long to kiss you goodnight
And run my fingers through your hair
To watch your eyelids close
Eyelashes soft against your cheek

I am single - again
And a girl who has needs
So boys I beg you
To follow my lead
I have a mouth 
That likes to be kissed
Softy and gently
It's not to be missed
Don't stick your tongue in
Like a pneumatic drill 
Or suck on my face
Like a puppy on pills
My lips have nerves
That give me pleasure & pain
They like to be savoured
Not tugged on in vain

The Perils of Online Dating!

This being single lark

Match, Elite or Tinder

But does it help or hinder?!

Not Invisable

I sit on a bench
On a hill
In the rain
Hiding my tears
My heart 
Full of pain
I watch
I listen 
I wait in vain
For the answer
To a question
I can't explain

I sit on a bench
In a park
Full of history
Surrounded by people
Who pass by
But can't see me
I am hurt
I am broken
And they let me be
A girl
On a bench
Across from the abbey

I sit on my bench
In quiet

Christmas Message

It is Christmas time again
Tis the season to be jolly
But I have this fear that I'll end up
Impaled upon the holly!
Face down amongst the tinsel
Legs up in the air
A fir tree firmly rooted 
With its branches in my hair
A gravy splattered dress
Is a look I might be working
With brussel sprouts as earrings
(The pigs in blankets will be smirking)
As they watch my slow descent
To the floo...
