when peace between nations thins
and the belonging to each other is almost forgotten
it is then that hope and painless dialogue must stand their ground.
If human kindness cannot be spoken or heard of
and distanced brothers allow hurt to separately weaponise
the spaces between them
silences raw and torn will become the Kings of ill reason.
When the integration of...

closer than us to the earth's soul
deeper submerged in its workings
the worlds creature's of every size and denomination
know more of this their home that we superficially share,
in ways forever to be unfamiliar to us
it is we who dwell apart from what really matters
abiding in the less important distracting processions
of materialistic offerings
that the misguidance ...

waiting to greet us
at the door of the womb
for our use in bridging life's unpredictable span
each intake given
from an immeasurable invisibility
inhaled to declare us as ourselves
capable of identifying and naming everything
helping us to feel at home
from where time habitually sends portions of itself
to gather dust in the somewhere of an ...

everything rests in
bouquets of sultry satisfaction.
Your dawn brightened smile
your naked swarthiness,
of being adorable
and how much last nights first story
I hung onto
told me that with you
fun and laughter are not shy strangers
they live uncaged in the crazy beautiful world
that is your heart
yet as I watch you dr...

from where life is
he is separated
finished with by time
relieved of existence.
she sees herself marooned
between his goodbye
memories are her only compass
she must use their guidance's
will always be beautiful comforts
able to sift through the veils of sleep
and grow each night
in the gardens of her d...

inanimates of the wild
hold history inside
beautify and amaze.
Wind wrestling grass and tree's
scribble on the air with pointless meanings
varicosities of streams
have time tongues
able to smoothly grind rocks into grains.
Ravens puncture the silence...

I can see them now
Mothers cutting-out scissors
heavy in her delicate fingers
snipping at the edges of paper patterns
so flimsy and soft as the tissues she used
to wipe my little girl drippy nose in wintertime.
more than half my lifetime away
in kept memories of her
opening and closing the metal jaws steady as ever
along chalk lines o...

the white opiate of moon tendrils
inducing a slumbering journey
beyond the restricting horizon of wakefulness
I am being given a gift
of becoming another self in flight
through ethereal idylls
to so overwhelmingly a paradisal destination
that I am dreamily convinced heaven has allowed me
to have seen its undeniableness.

when the impulse used to strike
to just go
I always rushed off too quickly
there were things I should have but didn't
and shouldn't have but did take with me
so there I would be
in the wrong clothes
in the wrong shoes
going to the wrong place
at the wrong time of year
thats why I always had no other choice
than to go back the...

I'm on a dare!
one foot testing cautiously
then the other
I'm standing on the iced crust
there is a dark churning beneath the glassy plating
but hey! who gives a fuck!?
Come back here! a voice rings out from behind.Too late
I'm a couple of metres out now and the dare must continue
despite the creaking,despite the signs of fracture
or my knowing that at any moment

there they live
the subcultured the untamed
having never tasted or wanting to
lifes essential fruits
preferring to scatter seeds of promise
on stoney ground
the stonier for them
Players in lost sad game's
games we are increasingly being made to spectate
games's of vandalizing and threatening
of mocking normality

bored! bored! bored!
don't even wanna get my boring mush behind make-up
or touch my boring processed brekky
my mum-cum-lady in waiting
has told boring work on the phone
that I'm not well
in such a way that even I believed it!
yes,bored! bored! bored!
to a point of being bored with boredom itself
ok so some might say get a life,yeah?
well I have

I cannot recall the number of times
he had advised not to revisit the ghostworlds of regret
as if they were joy destroying wastelands
parched,occupied by minions of a strange purpose
a dead fleshed country,its blood long ago spilled
or a gateway opening into mind raping voids
threatening pits entitled despair.
For he himself had known only too well
their clinging power...

to me the best place in the world
also a place my mother insisted
that I having made it
must lie in it
which I did
but not in the way she intended I do
my idea of lying in it
was of the false promising devious kind
but ever so sexually worthwhile
reaping bumping and grinding rewards.
A way of putting off
for as long as it would t...

talkatively tempted out of an early night
sister with sister
regurgitating the latest scandals
sifting through hotbeds of shocking spillages
aiming to decry their illogicalities
while not forgetting to frown and tut our way through each one
and not only until those cows came home
but until they were almost ready to go out again!
when we would shuffle ...

eighteen years older
than the average age of the infants in this class
that I am sitting in with as an observer and hopefully teacher to be
I am not too keen on the stern tactics
of the woman telling them to clear away their excercise books
to-sit up straight!-and pay attention to the questions she is about to ask.
Trying to sound more in years than she actually is

apprehensions start rattling
the loose change of my fear
as I approach the farm gate
hearing the fierce barking
loud enough to almost
drown every other sound out.
The animal knows enough of its purpose not to let me pass.
This called for a reliance on my acting skills!
Adopting a visual facade of bravado and remembering the tactic of
attack being the best form of de...

having had enough of your ramblings
and with the ignorant needs of ourselves
topping every list
the time came for us
to pass the buck
and you on
to throw your towel in was going to be for the best
-our underlying best.
It was for the rest home to take and chair-borne you now
and place you among others of deaths short queue
dribbling from their lopsided mouths,bac...

in order to keep face paint glamoured hordes
of seat edged excitedly screaming kids entertained
it has been financially neccessary
to sometimes by skin of theatrical teeth
take on lamb from mutton
shabbily costumed and pathetically disguised
faded but still full of themselves no marque celebrities
who think they can revive their dead ratings and flagging bank accounts.

I just know that you want me.
Yes you do!
You want me so badly.
To a point where,you can no longer control the want
and are allowing it to torture you.
Look! all it takes to bring us together
is for you to knock down your fucking stupid wall of pride!
and let your heart run free to find mine waiting here for you as always.
Together,they will find the right key

divorced at twenty eight single till thirty three
married a second time and for good.
Today is the anniversary of that afternoon when
without any warning you fell down,never to get up again.
I was told later it was a heart attack.I wasn't with you
I was on the other side of the world not knowing.
An act of fate maybe to save me from witnessing the shock at the time ?...

we chew on religious debate
his beliefs undetered
though those like him do have the 'coniving skill'
to dress the Calvary crap with truth
by using their Saint Foxy sharpened tongues.
Does he truly believe,I wonder?
although he says he does,I sense an air of falsification.
Comically pointless how he tries to conspire
with imaginary bogeymen,to get-me-
the ultimate worship...

there is a blackbird that occasionally visits the tree in my garden
and sings there after MIDNIGHT!
or very VERY! early in the morning
even ALL night when he's feeling more lyrical than usual
what is somewhat distinctive about the song's
(particularly if I am sleep damaged and obliged to endure the warblings right near my window)
is that on rare occasions they are made a pat...

reading a book.
'HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SEX LIFE'
" I've read that,and what a load of rubbish it is"
said the newly moved in gorgeous guy from across the hall (on a ciggy scrounge)
oh! and I suppose you know a better way then,said I (praying to heaven he does!)
If I told YOU
that the next morning I burned the book
you'll understand what happened.

I woke up asleep in a bad dream today
to find I had died in another life
where the sky had eaten the earth away
and my heart spoke with the wounds of strife
the colours blue/grey
two roles I played
in a film kaleidoscopically defined
which portrayed me beneath a sea
in the depths of someone elses mind
my voice fell out and ran away
to where my reincarnation first bega...

worth of everything naturally wonderful am I more aware
now full of appreciation my soul,made whole my care.
Pricelessly bright the costless sun
for Moon and stars? my payment? none!
no money need I give for land or ocean beauty
I simply use my heart to purchase their free given duty.
Creatures,birds of the air no bar code defiles
price tagged? not one on the shelves of nature...

I'm perfectly put together tonight
in what I call my 'warm looking wash'
coordinated down to the blush on my not so young cheeks.
This hard worked on accomplishment makes me feel Christmas Eve happy!
as I bask in my mirrors many agreements of-YES!
and reward it with a lip gloss seal of thanks on its glassy face.
I feel teenaged again,giggly and si...

a long standing relationship was brought crashing to the ground.
The interferers had won another victory.The broken twosome were beyond repair.
Once lovers,they became haters of each other.
Those rumourmongers who distorted the truth about them grew richer
on deceitful treasures of satisfaction
shall we continue wearing our false masks of pity,and lie through our ...

I've rooted out its replacement
and cannot wait for the procedure to begin
after which I know all functions will be massively improved!
I just wanted this misbehaving utterly crass visceral mass
to stop wrongly reacting to my sweet toothed cravings
and/or badly timing the backfirings of my digestively accumulated gas!
Legs and arms? no problemos!
they're positively calm.
Monday 10th July 2017 5:04 pm
it was when our hearts
not knowing why,became uneasy in each others company
when our thoughts for each other were gradually being struck blind
that we decided to press our hardened lips together
in an act of kissing the unsure future and wasted past goodbye.
Which memories,I wondered
shall I take with me now before I walk away
before my love starts to mutate into sorrow...

in these selfish days
the separated armies of the lonely
abide in cruel wastelands
among tumble weeds and cold winds of hopelessness and lost will
empty places relentlessly,endlessly unforgiving
citadels of sadness,despair and desperation.
Many,who for no fault of their own have here been delivered
to single handedly fight the clutching ghosts of lifes nothingness
Monday 3rd July 2017 11:49 am
once he was mine this rough and tumble man
who taught me how to laugh at lifes far too serious plans
nightly naively we slept in trouble-shunning comforting dark
precious communions of then on my heart have left their indelible mark
those younger years I repetitively retrace
that instigate not only the fall of happy tears down my smiling face
but the rise of treasured memor...

if each coming hour could be filled with love and bring
an end to every suffering
free the wronged endurance of abused time
eradicate all human on human crime
delay forever the progress of dark worth
and let light shine in every corner of this earth
sought anew lifes true delight
to empower the power of such might
and implement the end of those who try
to enforce only te...

upon your arrival,the room suddenly bloomed brighter
as if you had been followed in by the sun itself!
Chore's were destined for the back burner
your presence fill's the air with a new novelty.
You sit at ease,in the only other chair
despite the uncomfortableness of its sagging seat
there you begin speaking of far greater importances
of suffering people,and world wid...

(laughingly inspired by her comment to me on Raj Ferds recent poem-and also-for-Raj)
jumping jehoshaphat! not her!
my top rated heroine of hump-like references !
my long adored idol of indecent insinuations !
she ain't become possessed by the ghost of Mary Whitehouse has she?
Oh! Godess of all thing's porno,please let it not be so
that her once lurid lion of a mind has...

moor walking the dog
beneath an uninteresting sky
matching my mood.
Some obese ugly guy
over confident and stupid
in assuming his facial looks alone
gave him a right-ticket
to stop and ask me
an out of this world type question
of would I be interested sharing
what becomes so easy to see as being
his empty unpromising future.
at that point
I had no n...

with the spiritual embodiment of a humming bird
I shall hover among the flowers of your soul
feeding on the nectar of the love and wisdom within
my wings at one with the air of your truthfulness
there is no returning to the caged world left far behind
gripped in the hands of its own destruction.
here I am discovering your lansdcapes of deeper charged relevances
Wednesday 21st June 2017 8:10 am
if you are listening J.C.
can't you bring the date of your second coming forward,
and come down from those great height's,and help humanity?
All you need do,so as not to get mobbed by autograph hunter's,
is assume another identity.
Its obvious that you would need to ditch the white robe,long hair and beard.
You see,my revered ideal idol,
having believed in you for ce...

and of their demise,
recall better time's
when they were
and still are
inspiration's for the future
of their beloved communitie's.
after their earthly departure's
it will do so much good
for the living
to sing and tell
of their friendship's,
and noble deed's done.
We shall feast

keen,to endure monotony
unpeturbed by uneventfulness
loves to allow unhappiness to drag its mundane feet
like slow motion heartbeat's
from one leaden day to the next.
With the taste of prolonged silence on his tongue
and,endowed with more than his share of gloom
willingly lays out the truth of loneliness
as if setting a dreary table for nobody but himself.

we sit contemplative.Both lost;initially tolerating,
the difference's in our sexual appetite's,I,
was to become more than familiar with his!
Although I must say,that his clarified overheated intention's
did pave the way for new excitement's.
The temperature of our relationship blew the guage!
He wasn't that easy to accomodate at first,but,
I didn't want him to go hun...

there has to be a wrap-around
miniature forest of bonsai tree's
silver root's snaking from the waistline
down to golden earthed hem.
but not too poorly presenting their ware's

which will surround this beautiful geisha
the traditional oriental dollgirl.
And,reaching to ...

travelling newfound sea's of truth,yet uncrossed
sailing on the ship of our love
beneath so many smiling,guiding star's
trusting in the kindness of the wave's
to take us where we have longed to go
pure ocean,carry us with you
lead us away from the friendless,darkening shore.

height and weight? unknown.
Determination to stay? one hundred per cent.
strong sense of duty to the cruel ruination of the victim.
Very protective of its self.
Never willing to share emotional trait's during its occupation.

The fallen,flight lost,covered in the filth of sin,
indomitably crawling the corridor's of hell

wheeling high in heavens glory,triumphant.
Never,could there be,

In subterranean darkness,
the broken winged,entering Satans snap jaw's
a gladly offered self sa...

I tell the truth of this miracle
I with him am sharing the real colours of happiness
I couldn't love Heaven any deeper
I burn with him more than the power of every flame
I am willingly at the mercy of the everything his beautiful soul offers
I feel his honesty and guidance continuing to enlighten my once lost self
I hoard his every word every embrace
I once the ashes he made ...
