The Stillness in my Heart   2 comments

Most of us should be thankful for the life we lead, for others may not be as fortunate.
Sometimes I think we forget the goodness in our life

The Stillness in my Heart

Thank you lover once and for all
Behold the days of past no more
My love, my heart, the fire within
Calls out in pain, not on a whim

The shore we walked upon at dusk
With heartfelt love no hint of lust
The pulse so rapid breathe so short
Love for each other no last resort

Our life in front of us did spread
Looking forward to the day we wed
Our love our time it was to come
To share our life and be as one

But a shadow on our life had spread
An unseen cancer of which to dread
Our time together way too short
Cancer no answer, no retort

I learnt so early from the start
To treasure every beating heart
For that which we do so aspire
Is a love that sets our soul on fire

This Mind is Mine   2 comments

The clouds are low and dark
foreboding fills the mind
The winds are chilled blowing
off the snow from the south
It’s early in the season for this,
to feel like this, but it is winter
It makes the mind wander to
areas forbidden in other times
Where do I go from here?
Sitting, laying, sleeping
I want to take the dog for a walk
but I don’t have one as such
Goosebumps ride the muscles
as the sinews of my arm flex
The mind rides a wild storm at sea
Alcohol doesn’t really warm you
it only numbs the mind and senses
Seen too many people drown
And not at sea, the publican knows
I don’t know why the clouds are getting darker
The wind blows colder – bloody colder
The spray from the ocean is blown
through my mind, I can taste the salt
The crowds of people rushing through my mind annoy me
Don’t you know – I don’t know – who knows
People say I am important, at least to myself
but I don’t know how they know
To me I think I’m a very insecure person
I thought I hid it well, but it appears not
The clouds are dark still swirling around
my head, my eyes, my mind, can I see
can I feel my way with the clouds so low?
The wind is chilled the mind is clouded
this mind
this mind is
this mind is
mine……………… .

Just A Number   2 comments

Just a number
Is that all we are
A quantity of time
A sum of our past

Just a number it is
Was I second or first
Does it all really matter
Is third that much worse

The number of times
I have loved in this life
And the number of times
It has ended in strife

Just a number
So now let me count
The days I have loved
A wonderous amount

I will sing you a song
It was once number one
If I give it to you
Will it amount to a sum

The stars are numerous
Too many to see
But with number crunching
The numbers will be

I am one of a series
With a good bit of luck
A fine-looking man
And a damn good truck driver

Just a number in days
And all in good time
The numberplate of my car
Reads all number nines

Life and Lover   Leave a comment

In a darkened room set for lovers
Drink the draught of life to please
Raise the rivers and let them flow
Dam the breeches midnight ease

Freedom walking, talking, soaring high
Birds in wonder with amazing flight
If taking stock of ancient rhymes
The runes of earth modern day delights

Run on, Leonardo’s brain Picasso’s skill
An artistic horizon for all to enjoy
The calendar to end the agnostics’ darkness
With cultural days now a dream no more

To finding the lovers hidden heart
By a humble man on bended knees
As ancient believers praise the find
Golden haired woman, lover to please

Golden band of love no jail for life
A deep-sea wreckage can be reborn
Spiritual calling or a dream never ending
Nothing can stop this majestic storm

So no shredded thoughts from other times
No provocateur heart wrapped up inside
Still searching the soul, departure wild
Where life and lover will walk side by side

A Touch of Fantasy   2 comments

I had only met you once
And it started with a touch
Nothing more or nothing less
And as wonderful as it was
It was never to be enough

A touch of reality a touch of fantasy
In my dreams tell me what you think

Dirt tracks, bush trails, steel rails
Difficult is the path to navigate
To run my fingers over your body
No longer my love can I wait
Do you feel the same as I do?

A touch of reality a touch of fantasy
In my dreams tell me what you think

See the wind as it blows our way
With visions of our future seen
Naked together or clothed alone
Fresh are the thoughts in my mind
Blown away by your beauty

A touch of reality a touch of fantasy
In my dreams tell me what you think

I believe in all we can be
Do you believe as I do?
Let our bodies exist as one
As we taste the essence of us
And to think, it started with a touch

A touch of reality a touch of fantasy
In my dreams tell me what you think

I Think I’ve Peaked   6 comments

I think I’ve peaked

The proliferation of my narration
This zenith of my linguistics
Extinguished by the downward spiral
Reversing my upward trend

I think I’ve peaked

As this maturation as a writer
Ceases at the setting of the false spring
My change from a simple to a complex level
Disappearing as quickly as it commenced

I think I’ve peaked

Ability multiplied by dreaming equals zero
As the build-up in concentration wanes
My true ability, or lack thereof, is revealed
You know the words I need to say

I think I’ve peaked

Lacking in synchronicity of mind and life
Never the same things at the same time
The expansion of beliefs and beyond
Consumed by my past , as a life defined

I think I’ve peaked

Verbosity, it appears, never a problem
Tho’ sense and structure struggle to be met
I cannot always understand what is written by others
But there are words out there I can never forget

I think I’ve peaked

I cannot photograph, cannot paint
Sculpture a dream to never be attained
Writing the one thing I thought I could do
But is appears I create on a lesser plane

I think I’ve peaked

Typical of a man, some would say
Peaking too early, and in too many ways
Concentration, escalation, intensification
For now these words, they come too late

I think I’ve peaked

Spent force, lacking validity, little effect
Dreams are gone when expectations not met
I could blame society, that would be easy, just you see
But at the end of the day, the truth is, the blame is in me

I think I’ve peaked

The Art and Fade of We   Leave a comment

It was an art you know
This “we”
Dancing the night beams
Bourgeois
But thinking we better
We were an art
Poetry, painting, sculpture
Moving as a we
It was so, we
Silhouetted as we
By the moonlight
By the moonbeams
Apprentice, novice
Call us what you wish
We were naive in amore
Though we thought not
We exploded our microcosm
In a kaleidoscope of tangerine
Our love to be forever
Of that we were sure
Then we the fade began
Armour covered our hearts
Bereft we became
We changed
We became I
From each we moved
The fade
Into the sunset
From colour to darkness
But note
Darkness yes
Blackness no
There is no I in we
We know
But lovers gone
We still be
We were an art
But as art became our time
We felt bereft
This art, this fade, this we
So be, to be
We are now an I
This you and me
For we are no longer we
As we have seen
The art and fade of we
